Vagabond Multilingual Journal is supported by a team of student volunteers who come from backgrounds as diverse and rich as the creative works of the journal. Some are writers, visual artists, polyglots, or logisticians. They contribute their leadership skills, talents, and efforts to ensure that Vagabond continues to produce good quality issues.

She speaks English fluently, Italian decently, and Japanese and Yurok a very small amount. You can usually find her reading, writing, singing a cappella, or wishing she were abroad. When she isn't on tumblr, that is.
