(AKA the animatedly reflexive badass, Anne Arkhane)
can be found haunting libraries and academic institutions. She also appears as a Denver Public School Guest Teacher in civics/social studies, sciences, music, art, drama, and PE.

Emily was raised in a port city along the Mississippi River. The banks are home to Sac & Fox Tribe / Meskwaki Nation, French, Irish-German, Eastern European and many more rooted immigrants and diaspora. Currently, Emily is a graduate student in Denver, CO studying ecological ethics and holds a position at the Center for Eco-Justice. Her work and research focuses on ecological ethics and culture particularly as expressed through comics, graphic novels, and film. While in Denver she’s been in conversation and convention with leaders from The Tinker Endowment, Ailiff Institute, the American Indian Movement, Pop Culture Classroom, DiNK Denver, Denver PopCultureCon, and the African Community Center as well as many more organizations/institutions. In her free time, Emily co-founded the Whisky Horror Film Society with her friends, fuddles with art projects, and runs ultra distances on trails. Other distractions include anything covered in ink, music, and driving through the desert like Hunter S.T.

to pluck (v.)

late Old English ploccian, pluccian “pull off, cull,” from West Germanic *plokken  a frequentative, ultimately from Latin pilare “pull out hair,” from pilus “hair”

pluck (n.)

c. 1400, “act of plucking,” from pluck (v.). Meaning “courage, boldness” (1785), originally in pugilism slang, is a figurative use from earlier meaning “heart, viscera” (1610s) as that which is “plucked” from slaughtered livestock. Perhaps influenced by figurative use of the verb in pluck up (one’s courage, etc.), attested from c. 1300.
