    Emily's Bio:
    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

Throughout the past three-and-a-half years, I have been on a journey to discover what I am meant to do in life. As a freshman at The College of St. Scholastica, I was keen on pursuing a degree in nursing and working in a hospital in Colorado or exploring the world as a travel nurse. That path drastically changed when I realized I was meant to pursue something closer to the arts. I chose Communication, because I knew it would open many different doors for me and would leave room for more discovery later on. From the moment I changed my major, I threw myself into any and all opportunities that came about. I wanted to prepare myself for everything and learn whether or not I’d actually like any of the things I could do. I definitely enjoyed almost all of the things I tried. I wrote for the Student Newspaper, interned at a record label, worked in the photography lab, interned at a music venue, blogged for the school’s blog [and still do of course], and, now, I am a volunteer photographer for a global music movement. Although I may not know exactly where I want to end up, I know that I am doing all the right things by gaining experience in the working world. I find that I only gain more knowledge and perspective as I continue to dive in to the opportunities that present themselves. I have also learned that sometimes I have to make the opportunities for myself. Sometimes it is as simple as asking if I can.
