In short

  • My name is Emily. 
    I'm a sophomore university student.
    I'm majoring in Telecommunications and Media Studies with a minor in English.
    I'm usually smiling.
    I have a big passion for humanitarian work, particularly in Kenya, Africa.
    I play guitar, piano, and ukulele.
    I am terrified of sharks and spiders.
    I use words like "y'all" and "howdy."  I'm Texan, okay?
    Making friends is my favorite.

    "Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." -1 Corinthians 10:31
