Abby is a fourth-year studying Public Health and Geography. She founded SASHA back in November of 2017 after seeing the need at OSU and learning about the Sex Week movement occurring across the United States. Abby is planning to go to graduate school to study epidemiology, specifically the diseases of maternal and child health.
When she is not writing frigid third-person bios of herself, she can be found futilely fighting for her cat’s affection, admiring Frida Kahlo’s art, or exploring the burgeoning vegan fare in Columbus.
Elaine is a fourth-year studying Public Health and Spanish. She decided to join SASHA and the Sex Week Movement because she wants to change the narrative of Sex Ed on college campuses. She was shocked when a research project taught her that very few of her peers at OSU received factual and scientific Sex Ed growing up and even fewer used condoms or received recommended testing. Elaine intends on attending graduate school to study Health Policy and International Development.
While taking a break from her studies, you can find her planning her next backpacking trip, curling up with a warm cup of coffee and anything from Oprah's Book Club, or baking some sort of dessert
