The Chimes

Amelia Schuhler, Opinions Editor

Amelia Schuhler is a senior at Biola University studying western classics and sociology. In her free time she backpacks the Washington state coast, listens to Radiolab podcasts and hyper-fixates on identifying species of trees.

I love to tell stories. I started writing and directing short films about chickens when I was fifteen. I spent ninth grade figuring out how to resurrect my grandpa’s Cannon 7s film camera and interviewing my friends to make documentaries about them. Growing up in the Los Angeles area, I had access to a wealth of after-school art programs and summer art camps that directed my drive to create; and with the freedom of being homeschooled, I was able to spend my time learning about whatever I wanted to, so I chose to learn about everything. Volcanology, slam poetry, the Russian monarchy, hand drawn animation, French cuisine—the list is eccentric and endless. I also grew up on a farm, and pride myself on my goat-milking skills. 

Choosing a career was only difficult because I loved too many things. Instead of coming to college right after high school, I worked as a fry-cook in a sushi burrito food truck and saved up to explore Europe. I spent six months there, bouncing from Spain to Romania to Greece, finally ending up at Biola where, after switching my major four times, I found a home in the sociology department.

I started working for the Chimes this semester as the editor of the Opinions Section because of its intersection with my sociological interests; and because, well, I have a lot of opinions.
