Headshot for Peri Levin, JWA's Development Intern for Summer 2017.

Peri Levin grew up just outside Boston, Massachusetts and is a rising sophomore at Oberlin College in Oberlin Ohio. She studies history and art history with a concentration in feminist art (and is considering a minor in either law and society or religion.) At Oberlin, she is part of the pottery cooperative, and the partner acrobatics community and will be teaching an acrobatics class through the college next semester. Peri is passionate about medieval art, hiking, yoga, and lgbt and feminist history. She is extremely excited to be a part of such a passionate feminist organization.
