Abigail Johnson

Abby Johnson (she/her/hers) is a student at Scripps college where she will soon graduate with a dual degree in legal studies and Spanish with a concentration in human rights. While living in Boston and working part-time at an art museum, Abby is excited to begin work on her senior thesis, which will explore asylum testimony as a performance of identity, and the ways in which legal narratives determine which bodies have access to political asylum. She is passionate about the power of storytelling in its many forms, from music and poetry to historic texts and legal arguments. Abby has lived in many places but was ultimately shaped by her upbringing in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and can be found running, hiking and camping in her free time.
