Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Emily is currently a Communication student minoring in Music Industry at the University of California, Los Angeles from San Francisco, California. Since high school, Emily has realized that her calling is to spread empathy, kindness, and love through her every action. She frequently volunteers by leading a coming of age retreat for high school seniors called Kairos and teaching choir to children ages 6 to 11 at the Boys and Girls Club Hollywood. As the salutatorian of her graduating class, Emily has lead multiple clubs and created a large, supportive community at Sacred Heart Cathedral. After graduating from UCLA, Emily aspires to obtain her J.D. in entertainment law in order to protect independent artists from exploitation by large corporations.

Interesting Factoid

I can rock climb, and I am belay certified. I can also play the guitar, ukulele, and piano, sing, and (kinda) beatbox.
