Joycelene Fernandez rss Amsterdam, Fall 2009

Joy is a junior at Lawrence University participating in the IES Abroad Amsterdam program. She is a proud Gender Studies and Psychology double major and History minor. While in Amsterdam, she hopes to get a head start on her senior project that will investigate the pressures involved in disciplining the female body, especially in regards to sex work, eating disorders, and reproductive health. Her goals are to travel within and beyond the Netherlands, have a conversation in Dutch in her charmingly awkward accent, and gain a better grasp of her identity as not only a feminist, but also as a human being.
