Check out our newest #CSJSpotlight - Emma Giordano, MHC-LP!
Emma is from Long Island, New York. She works as a DBT therapist in Manhattan and is Marketing & Communications Officer of CSJ. Emma developed a deep passion for social justice issues through her love of books, inspired by the #WeNeedDiverseBooks movement which highlighted the need for marginalized authors and their stories in young adult literature. As a counseling student, her graduate program left an impact with it’s strong focus on serving clients from minoritized populations and social justice advocacy. She says, “I joined CSJ to utilize my skills in social media to promote the essential work of this organization and continue spreading awareness for social injustices that continue to plague our profession and the world as a whole.”
Emma’s work for the CSJ Marketing & Communications committee involves designing flyers to promote CSJ-sponsored events, updating our website and social media accounts, collaborating with our blog writers to create social posts on social justice issues, and handling communication between CSJ members and committees. Her goals for CSJ include expanding our Marketing & Communications committee (which we are currently accepting new members for! Check out our recent post on how to join) and continuing to create engaging content that highlights the importance of justice, advocacy, and awareness.
When Emma is not working for CSJ, you can find her, exploring New York City with friends, taking dance clases, devouring the next book from her favorite authors, and making YouTube videos sharing her thoughts on her recent reads.
Give it up for Emma and the amazing work she is doing for CSJ’s online presence!
