Hi! I'm Emilie and I am from a wicked small town in Southern New Hampshire. I am majoring in Neuroscience on a Premed track and am very interested in tropical medicine. During my time in the fall, I stayed at home in New Hampshire and ventured further up North to attend the University of New Hampshire. I think that for me, staying home was the best option I could have made. Staying home allowed me extra time with my family before traveling across the country and joining the Green Wave.
A few of my favorite things that I did with my time in the fall include skiing with my family in the White Mountains, learning a new style of dance called "Hip Hop Step Dance" through an all female hip hop team, participating as a subject in undergraduate psychology research, dancing in a charity benefit show for St. Jude Hospital, as well as working as a part time life guard where I taught children with disabilities swimming fundamentals for pool and ocean play. I also submitted a personal essay to the University of New Hampshire writing program and will find out shortly if my piece was chosen to be published in their 2019 Transitions English book!
Since arriving at Tulane, I have gone to the King Cake Festival, became a Spring Ambassador, and continued my love of dance through the amazing arts department here on campus.
Getting chosen to be a Spring Scholar is more than just an accomplishment, it will allow you to explore new experiences before arriving here and give you the freedom to chose what you want to do in between the transition from high school and the rest of your life. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me!
