In Their Own Words
The first wave of updates are in; in their own words read below to catch up with other Scripps Millennials!
Jocelyn Price ’11
Major: Foreign languages – Spanish and French
In the two-and-a-half years since graduation, I have focused on learning how to care for myself and function with my recent Fibromyalgia diagnosis. I am grateful to my years at Scripps for teaching me how to thrive in a challenging environment as I strive to move forward in this most trying time of my life. I am hopeful that in the next few years I will be capable of stepping into a full-time graduate program and career, probably in Spanish interpretation. Currently, I’m studying German in Zurich with my partner, Robert, who is carrying out his postdoctoral research at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). Thank you to all the friends and family who have supported me through this diagnosis and international move, including those Scrippsies who have stayed in touch from afar.

Chelsea illustrated the “30 under 30” summer 2013 Scripps Magazine cover, as well as the art icons found throughout the article.
Brianna Krumweide Smith ’11
Administrator with Long Beach Christian Fellowship
“Post Scripps, I interned with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at CSU Long Beach. There I applied what I had learned about racial reconciliation and social justice; CSULB is one of the most diverse colleges in the state, and many students come from low income families. In those two years—while also planning a wedding with Brendan Smith (HMC ’11)—I learned there is more to “diversity” than having an array of people from different cultures, perhaps with different skin colors.
“Racial reconciliation, at its core, isn’t about getting people together, but building lifetime friendships and relationships that bring healing and new freedom. I am now at a church, working to help the pastoral staff see how God calls Christians to be ambassadors for racial reconciliation. The Kingdom of God is multiethnic, and I love that my education helped me to see where we can improve and rethink racial reconciliation (gender equality, classifications of gender, classism, etc).”
Emilie Docter ’11
St. Louis, Missouri
“A couple of exciting updates: The day after my interview for the “30 under 30” article, I was offered (and took) a development position at the Jewish Federation in St. Louis. On May I got engaged to be married to Christopher Fan, whom I met in St. Louis!”
Allegra Breedlove ’15
“I’m interning in Los Angeles with Gen Anderson ’91 in the development of her healthy/eco-friendly cooking and lifestyle television show Change the Menu for PBS. Here we are cooking together at a vegan baking class that she auctioned for charity.”
