The Chimes

Emily Coffey

Emily Coffey, Deputy Arts and Entertainment Editor

Emily Coffey is a sophomore Journalism major who loves John Mayer, sushi, and a good pen.

My love of the arts and writing began at an early age when my father introduced me to Bon Jovi and my mom introduced me to the magic of the haiku. From there, I quickly learned to write and write music, which then grew into my love of writing about music. Journalism came as a natural expression and combination of these passions.

In addition to Bon Jovi, my childhood included lots of camping, white water rafting, star gazing, and adventures that were feasible during the school year only because my parents home schooled me. When I was twelve years old, my family moved from the sleepy vacation town of Bend, Oregon to Portland, where I grew and experienced a different level of culture. This new environment sparked my curiosity towards finding what influences culture and local ideologies. This passion was further explored when my family moved, again, to Nepal and I became deeply fascinated with women’s rights, human trafficking, and the Annapurna mountain range.

Coming to Biola and writing in the Chimes has allowed me to become a better writer, a better friend, and a better believer. In everything I do, I see Christ as the solution to a greater problem; music and writing are simply a way to communicate that.
