2013 Editorial Board

Our Editorial Board welcomed two new writers this spring Andrea Atherton and Chassidy Gipson. They are joined by the talented Jessica Spohn who has written for us over the past year. Their editor is the amazing and accomplished Dr. Kayte Branch. To learn more about this exciting program or to submit articles for consideration check the e-board page here.

Since Jessica has become a special part of our family this past year we wanted you to get to know her better, we recently sat down with her to learn more about the woman behind the words. One quick read and you will know why we are her super fans!

Jessica Spohn is a dual Master’s degree student in Public Health and Social Work at New Mexico State University. Her main focus for advocacy and education is with the GLBTQ community, sexual and relationship violence, and alcohol/tobacco harm reduction. She is super excited to have the honor of continuing to write for the Editorial Board! You can (try to) follow Jessica’s random thoughts and ideas on why living like 5-year-olds will solve the world’s problems on Twitter at @lessthanthreeya

What made you want to be a part of the One Student Editorial Board?
A lot of the news we see on TV and read in articles is biased and victim blaming. I want to voice the flip side, or both sides, or congratulate the good stories. We need more focus on bystander intervention and general education on diversity if we are going to make progress in defeating rape culture. Plus, I’ve been a fan of One Student since it launched; the No Woman Left Behind campaign is very special to me.

What do you hope campus communities will gain from reading your articles?
Confidence. Sometimes, people just need ideas for starting a movement, like knowing that there are others with the same thoughts working toward the same goal. One person’s voice turns into big numbers quickly, but it takes confidence to be the first or one of the first to speak out.

What’s your favorite breakfast food?
I’m so bad and I don’t usually eat breakfast! But I really, really love California-style breakfast burritos… it’s all kinds of deliciousness wrapped up in tortilla, plus french fries.

What song would be the perfect backdrop to a documentary film about your life?
I have such an eclectic taste in music, it’s hard to choose (I had a list with 5 songs and then I decided that was too many). So “Try” by P!nk, and “I’mma Shine” by Youngbloodz. And my documentary would have to be a musical.

What inspires you?
Resiliency and perseverance, and people with incredible optimism even when life is mean.

    Ceiling fans come in various designs, designs, form, and sizes.
    Anyway, the ceiling fan uses less electricity compared to the air conditioning
    unit that we have in our houses and that’s the bottom line. While it is easy to get amazed by these advancements in the ceiling fan domain, it is not surprising at all – when one considers the competition.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

    My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d
    certainly appreciate it.

    many months of hard work due to no data backup.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog
    and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.

    I usually do not drop many comments, but i did some searching and wound up here 2013 Editorial Board.

    And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it only me or does it look as if like some of the comments look like written by brain
    dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at other social
    sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post.

    Could you list of all of all your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook
    page or twitter feed?

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it
    much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Exceptional work!

  23. Posted May 23, 2014 at 3:59 am | Permalink

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the
    whole thing without having side effect , people could
    take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Appreciate it!

  26. Posted July 19, 2014 at 6:43 pm | Permalink

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
