Meet the Community Fellows

PSU Honors Community Fellow Alana Baldwin-Joiner


Hi! My name is Alana, and I’m going into my senior year at PSU in the Honors College! I’m majoring in English and I want to be a copyeditor when I grow up! In my free time you can find me at Starbucks, where I work as a barista, or milling around the Thai food trucks on 4th Ave! I can’t wait to work with my fellow Fellows to put on some awesome events for y'all this year!

PSU Honors Community Fellow Samantha Kemp


Hey there! My name is Samantha, but feel free to call me Sam. I'm a Junior Communications and Psychology double major in the 2020-2021 school year. I’m super passionate about communication, particularly AAC (Alternative Augmented Communication, which involves using external objects like buttons or boards to communicate messages), as well as American Sign Language. Outside of school, I’m into lots of things -- dogs, skateboarding, vintage things, movies (I used to be a Film major!), photography, and sewing. Feel free to contact me if you want!

PSU Honors Community Fellow Emma Miller


Hey! My name is Emma and I am going into my second year at PSU in the Honors College. I’m majoring in Applied Linguistics and study advanced German when I can. My favorite parts of linguistics are morphology and etymology, which are the structure and history of words, respectively. I love to knit, crochet, etc. (my family just calls it all “yarn art”). I have two cats, Bront and Taylor, whom I will miss dearly when I’m finally on campus again in late September. You can find me walking around downtown, drinking too much coffee in my apartment, or spending all my money on yarn (there are so many good yarn stores in Portland!).

PSU Honors Community Fellow Sophia Model

Sophia Model

Hello! My name is Sophia Model, and I am entering my second year at PSU and Honors College. I am bilingual (Russian is my first language) and am a biochemistry major with an emphasis in pre-med. I love to go on walks downtown with a good cup of coffee, color (I highly recommend it, soooo relaxing!), and spend time outdoors. Additionally, I love theatre and acting, and do extra work in the film industry around Portland. I have two bunnies, Penny and Suzie, and spend my time volunteering, making art with pediatric patients. Feel free to contact me at or @sophia__model on instagram!

PSU Honors Community Fellow Lexi Yokote


Hey, everyone! My name is Lexi and I am going to be a sophomore in the Honors College. I am currently majoring in Finance with a minor in Spanish. Since Fall term will be completely online for me, I will be staying at home in Hawai’i. Even though I won’t be around campus this Fall, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or just to connect! I look forward to getting to host Honors Community events for you all and hope everyone continues to stay safe as we navigate this year together!
