Sarah “Onyx” Marosi '17

Tell us a little bit about your background.

I am from Bay Village, Ohio and attended Bay High.

When and why did you decide to become a WGSS major (or minor)? 

Upon entering the College of Wooster, I already had planned to declare a WGSS major because it's an area of study that requires a constant reassessment of privilege, and how such privileges impact the course of one's life.

What is your favorite part about being a WGSS major (or minor) at the College of Wooster?

My favorite part about studying WGSS is that as an interdisciplinary field of study; I can use my WGSS lens to interpret/analyze almost any social phenomenon.

How do you plan on utilizing your WGSS degree after graduating? 

I am a WGSS and Psychology double major, and plan to pursue a career in Addiction Services as a Clinical Psychologist. I plan on utilizing my WGSS degree to conduct research and create new recovery models that more appropriately address the experiences of women in addiction recovery. 

What is the most interesting/important thing that you have learned or discovered by being a WGSS major (or minor)? 

The most important thing that I have learned by being a WGSS major is how to incorporate feminist pedagogy into other areas of study. 

Who is your favorite feminist icon and why?

My favorite feminist icon is Kathleen Hanna because she is the first woman who made feminist discourse approachable and digestible to me at a young age.
