Alyssa & Emily
We are two animal-loving girls from Northern California. Emily and Alyssa met in middle school, and slowly became friends. After years of friendship, a more meaningful bond grew between the two. They love sharing hard-core concerts with each other, as well as vegan meals, long walks though the city, and looking at all of the adorable animals in Davis (while trying to restrain from bringing more home!).
Emily is focusing on her education in the medical field while working part time to support both herself and her partner. She hopes to graduate from her college’s program and begin a career helping enrich lives through medicine and compassion.
Alyssa is finishing her college degree and is looking for opportunities to use her Bachelor’s degree to enrich the lives of animals and the LGBT community. She currently works part time to pay the bills, and hopes to begin saving more money for all of the traveling she and her partner dream of doing in their married life.
Both Emily and Alyssa hope to someday serve in the Peace Corps and travel the world.
