Erika Riley is from Stony Brook, New York and is a junior at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, where she studies creative writing and journalism. At college, she works as the editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper, The Knox Student, a job that allows her to pursue her two main passions: investigative reporting and staff-bonding board game nights. She’s previously worked as an editorial intern at New York Spaces, and will work as an editorial intern again this summer at StreetEasy. Erika came to Morocco to try her hand at reporting abroad and to improve her fairly limited French, and to finally get out of the United States. She hopes to see more of the world very, very soon.
