My name is Emma Grace Choplin, Emmagch, and I'm in the class of 2019 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I'm majoring in Psychology (B.S.) and double-minoring in Neuroscience and Religious Studies. I started editing Wikipedia and Wikiversity out of Dr. Eric Youngstrom's Mood, Emotions, and Clinical Child Assessment (MECCA) Lab at UNC-CH. Dr. Eric Youngstrom specializes in bipolar disorder, sleep, and evidence based assessment (EBA). Dr. Youngstrom started editing Wikipedia as a way to deliver good, scholarly psychological information about Evidenced-Based Assessment to the general public and clinicians. In September of 2016, Eric Youngstrom, Delaney Waggener, and Breana Smith created the Helping Give Away Psychological Science club (HGAPS) to continue this mission. I am the current president of HGAPS, which now has over 20 members, is a non-profit organization, with an alumni club and is in the process of expanding to other universities and colleges.
