Meet Lissa Heineman

Lissa Heineman is the Sigma Tau Delta Eastern Region Associate Student Representative. She is a senior at Muhlenberg College, and is majoring in English and Film Studies. Her passions focus on transmedia, particularly animation and fan cultures. An interesting fact about Lissa is that she once cried on Neil Gaiman. She’s hoping to do a variety of things in the future, none of which include crying on idols! She dreams of archiving for a comic book publisher; obtaining an MFA in media-writing; learning more about writing for video games, television, film, and comics; and eventually pursuing a PhD in Cinema Studies.
