Seventeen-year-old Erica is the editor-in-chief of her school’s newspaper, The Cauldron, and she recently attended the Hugh N. Boyd Journalism Diversity Workshop. Erica joined the Sex, Etc.staff because she feels passionately about writing and sex education. “I believe that sex is a normal, healthy aspect of life that should be openly discussed,” she explains. Erica is interested in writing about relationships and body image. She has played the violin for ten years and is now the president of her school’s orchestra. When Erica has time to travel, she enjoys rappelling castles in the United Kingdom.
