Meet the LGBT Life Student Staff!


MJ Brown
(she/he/they)

Hi everyone! I’m MJ (she/he/they) and I run the office library! Last year I created our Queer Witch/Tarot series, and this year I’m hoping to create some events for the polyamorous folks on campus. Feel free to stop by the office and say hello! 


Chris Cardenas
(they/she)

Hey everyone! I’m a junior double-majoring in QSS and Art History. You can usually find me in the esc or somewhere on the quad. My hobbies include anything art-related, discussing pop culture, and exploring music, TV, and film!


Tre' Davis
(he/they)

Hi, my name is Tre Davis (He/They) and I am from Macon, Georgia. I am a fourth year majoring in Psychology and Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies. I really love playing video games like The Sims and Fortnite, Marvel movies, and eating all kinds of food. I started working in the Office of LGBT Life last spring and I am really excited to be here this year.

Soju Hokari
(she/her)

Hi, I'm Soju! My passions are helping trans people, especially trans youth, finding a way to play sports, and being one of the captains of the Emory Gender Expansive and Women’s Ultimate (EGEWU). My greatest claim to fame, besides being a national champion in Ultimate, is that I've made every single bathroom in my high school gender neutral through the liberal use of tape, paper, and a printer.

In the coming weeks we will be welcoming additional student staff!
