After achieving local success around the Jersey Shore with her band Our Fellow Savages in high school, Emilia graduated and started at Berklee in the Fall of 2013. Now in her fifth semester, she is pursuing a degree in Professional Music, focusing in “Music and Society” by concentrating on Songwriting and Music Business courses and a minor in History. Emilia is passionate about using the power of music to effect social change, and is looking forward to further developing her abilities in this area through her studies at Berklee. Since the Fall of 2014 she has worked as a Peer Advisor, and starting this semester she will also help lead the training of new PAs as a Senior Peer Advisor. She is excited to explore her capacity as a leader and member of the Berklee community when she attends Berklee’s Cultural Leadership Retreat later in September.

Harrison, a Crescent City Renaissance man, has performed with a musical "who’s who" that includes Art Blakey, Dr. John, Digable Planets, Lena Horne, and Miles Davis, to name just a few.
