India Roper-Moyes ’20
Raised in Boise, Idaho, India recently graduated from Lewis & Clark where she studied English, Gender Studies and Theatre with a concentration in Dance. She frequently combined her academic pursuits together in larger creative projects including a zine/creative booklet exploring conceptions of “mad women” in Victorian literature, and a dance exploring the relationship between Emily Dickinson’s creative process and grief. India hopes to synthesize her academic and creative interests in a career that will allow her to engage with, create, and foster creativity as a means for engaging with the world and one’s identity.
While at Lewis & Clark, in addition to being the Alumni Fellow for Alumni & Parent Programs, India was part of the Lewis & Clark Dance Company, participated in choir, and was a co-chair for the Gender Studies Symposium. Her time outside of class was spent catching up with professors, exploring the stacks at Watzek, and planning new creative projects. She could be found reading Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales near the library fireplace, playing pool in the Stewart Hall basement, and walking through the Estate Gardens. She loves to cook, bake, read, and brings an energizing quality to everything she does.
