Greetings! I am Blu Emery Wolf, admin of U2F2 since February 2019. Originally from a small farming town just west of Grand Rapids, Michigan, I moved here to Utah to satisfy my personal love for the mountainous regions of the American west. For most of my life up until just recently around late 2017, I was not at all familiar with the furry fandom. Life circumstances lead me to eventually stumble upon the group as a means to cope with the difficulties I faced prior.
In March of 2018 I began my search for residency and employment in the Salt Lake Valley area, instantly falling in love with the environment and ultimately finding my way to my first U2F2 meet at Watchtower Cafe where I was warmly welcomed by the group. Feeling that sense of “family” got me to thinking that this was indeed going to be a very rewarding and worthwhile experience for me that I would find great passion in. Following the completion of my graduate degree in early May of 2018, a week after I graduated, I made my bold move across the country to this state and made my transition into life as a Utah fur. From then I have been fortunate to thrive as an individual and the confidence I have in myself has peaked ever since.
This fandom has provided me with numerous opportunities to develop so many genuine friendships and to take part in events and activities that I likely would not have encountered without my membership in it. Like I mentioned, it has been one of my primary sources of joy and hope through a very difficult time in my life, and for that I felt — and continue to feel — I owed it to the fandom and to the Utah furs in particular to pay it forward with my interest (and now an elected position) in the adminship. I am extremely excited and beyond grateful for the chance to be a part of something greater than myself, and I can’t think of any better way to do that than for the community I love most.
