Zoey Cambley

The Fulbright University of Bristol Summer Institute on Arts, Activism, and Social Justice

Zoey Cambley was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is a rising junior at the University of Nevada, Reno, double majoring in English Creative Writing and Gender, Race, and Identity with an emphasis on women and sexuality. Additionally, she has plans to major in English Literature. Outside of class, Zoey applies an intersectional decolonial feminist lens to her writings for Insight Magazine, combining both areas of study.

Along with writing, she enjoys painting and applies feminist theory to the art she creates. The Fulbright-University of Bristol course material presents the perfect intersection of Zoey’s lifelong avocations: art, activism, and social justice.

Being immersed in Bristol’s rich history and taking part in real-world activism will further solidify her resolve to improve the lives of others. Zoey cannot wait to experience the blending of art and social justice within the city, and looks forward to her chance at an immersive education with the University of Bristol. This is a life-changing opportunity for her to go abroad for the first time and one where she can bridge the gaps between academia and social justice.
