I’m Elena, a first year M.A.R. student at the Yale Divinity School, concentrating in Religion and Literature. Originally from the very northern suburbs of Chicago, I graduated from Yale College in 2015 with a degree in Classics. Throughout my time as an undergraduate, I worked as an editorial assistant for the university’s literary magazine, The Yale Review, participated in the Yale Political Union, danced with Phoenix, and studied Latin, literary theory, and political philosophy. Other than that, I love knitting, baking, dancing, and of course, Pierson College!
