Meet Christin!

LOVE IS IN THE AIR! Whether you hate Valentine’s Day or love it, that oh-so-special day of the year is coming up quick. We’ll be here making a toast to Galentine’s Day while feeling all the love for both our council members and our readers, and we hope you’re all having your own equally awesome celebrations. However, before the deluge of wine and chocolate can commence, we’re here to take some time for this week’s Meet the Council feature. Whether you’re planning a date night, girl’s night out, self-care extravaganza, or just another Wednesday, read on to share in the love for yet another one of our lovely and talented ladies. (Make your valentine read along with you! So romantic!)

To recap, our magazine is edited, designed, published, and promoted by a small group of BC’s undergraduate women each year, and we count ourselves lucky to attract some of the smartest and savviest snake-ladies that Boston College has to offer. Putting together a full publication each semester is a labor of love, and this year we’re turning the spotlight to the group of 13 awesome women who make it possible. Check back over the next few weeks to meet the full council, head here if you missed getting to know Taylor last week, and read on right now to meet the über-cool Christin Snyder!

Christin 1

Christin became a part of the Medusa Council as a freshman in 2016. A Political Science and English double major, she’s also spent the first half of her college career mentoring for the Links program, acting as a member of SEASA, and doing costume crew work for some of the theatre productions around campus. For the Medusa, she doubles as a fab Editorial Council member and badass poet (see her burn that annoying kid in your French class in style in our recent zine). Read on for a few more facts about Christin:


Favorite literary quote?
“Mist is when the sky is tired of flight
and rests its soft machine on the ground:
then the world is dim and bookish
like engravings under tissue paper.”
—”A Martian Sends a Postcard Home” by Craig Raine
Personal female icon?
My personal female icon is Rupi Kaur, because she is able to accurately capture the multidimensional nature of the female experience in her poetry in a way that isn’t forced, but is authentic and beautiful. 
Where can you find her outside of the Medusa?
In the rare moments when she doesn’t have to write an essay, she can be found singing obnoxiously loud in her room, binging Netflix, or eating way too much at random hours of the night with her roommates. Also hit her up on Instagram!
