Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Emma developed a love for travel throughout her childhood as she traveled all over the world with her mother, uncle, and various cousins. Excited and engaged by the new places, customs, and people she met along the way, she went on to get her bachelor’s degree in anthropology, focusing on culture. Before living and teaching abroad in Madrid, Spain, she studied abroad twice – for the first time in Tanzania conducting independent and original ethnographic field work for a summer and for the second time in Copenhagen, Denmark where she studied abroad for an academic year. Both experiences, which were quite different, encouraged her to seek out as much of the world as she could. Living and working in Spain has taught her new things about culture, communication, and herself. Emma is coordinating our Teach Abroad interview series for the 2017-2018 school year. She is excited about the journey she is on now and for all the ones that the future will hold.
