    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.

To Be On Trail

To be on trail is the closest thing I know to traveling abroad, truly. I have never traveled outside of the United States, and I have always traveled to places like Colorado and Florida with family. Come September, I will be flying to London by myself. Yes, there are other students from The College of St. Scholastica going there to study as well, but I will be flying there alone. My hope is to learn as much as I possibly can by being away from home, being away from the culture I have always know, and being introduced to new ideas and world views. This is how my camping and guiding trips relate to traveling abroad. When I am on trail, I have to adapt to the environment and the conditions that surround me. I am often faced with experiences that force me outside of my comfort zone, but I find a way to persevere. I do not have the comfort of home, my bedroom, and all of my things while out there. I am simply with the world and those who are along, and I am reminded of the beauty and wholeness of simplicity. I look forward to the experience that awaits in London.
