Build up the body of Christ. Support the Pentecost Offering.

Emma Johnston


Hello! I am a recent graduate of the University of Cambridge, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Modern and Medieval Languages (Russian, Spanish, Polish, Catalan). I will be spending the 2022/23 year as a YAV at the Presbyterian Mission to the UN in NYC. I am excited that I will get a chance to live and work with a community of like-minded young people who are equally striving to make a difference.
Working at the Presbyterian Mission to the UN, I am excited to continue the translation and advocacy work I did in my undergrad, working towards the ideals that I and the Presbyterian church believe in, particularly focusing on issues related to migration, peace-keeping, feminism, racism, and climate change (and their intersections).

Loves: languages, traveling, spicy food, fashion trend forecasting, fall air, hiking, and rowing.
