When you grow up in the city (San Francisco), you develop an appreciation for the wild (any). When you’re the only American in your Kindergarten class (in Mexico), you learn how to fit in (nickname: La Rubia). When you go to summer camp in an Eastern European country (Czech Republic), you expand your horizons (broadly). When you spend Spring Break of your sophomore year of High School building a homeless shelter (in El Salvador), you gain perspective (and a solid work ethic). When you travel across the country to go to college (Tufts), you become independent and capable (American Studies). When you appreciate the wild and know how to fit in and have a broad world-view and possess a solid work ethic and are independent and capable, you’re Emma.
