Channler Twyman was born and raised in Americus, GA and later the Greater Atlanta Area. Even from his earliest memories he remembers having an insatiable urge to see himself and his peers represented in all aspects of media, entertainment, and popular culture. It wasn’t until he attended The College of Wooster as a Posse scholar and began working intensively with the Center for Diversity and Inclusion that he realized that both diversity and inclusivity must be present in every professional field, especially academia.
During his time as a student he served as the president of the College’s Queer People of Color organization on campus, editor for the Artful Dodge literary magazine, and head editor for the student led literary magazine, The Goliard. He has spoken at and led many campus wide discussions surrounding issues of inclusion on and off campus.
He is happy to return to the college for another year full time as CDI’s intern. He is eager to learn as much as he can about what it takes to actively and consistently work for the well-being and success of marginalized students on campus in a professional setting. When he’s not working you can find him writing.
