Elena Cohen grew up in Northampton, Massachusetts, where she learned to love the outdoors and the warmth of community. She graduated from Mount Holyoke College with a B.A. in critical social thought. While in college, Elena co-organized campus-wide dialogues that brought together students, staff, and faculty to listen to one another and share stories across lines of work. She is thrilled to be at StoryCorps and can't wait to see where the MobileBooth takes her!
