Hallo, Ich hisse Emma! I live in Palm Harbor Florida. I am 16 years old and plan to graduate in spring from Palm Harbor University High School. My senior year will be a "gap" year spent in Germany!! I love to travel and luckily my family shares the same desire. I have been to London, Paris, Rome and also went to Barcelona as an exchange student for 3 weeks. Because my parents value new experiences and change our family took the opportunity to live in New York City for 3 years. My time in New York City really impacted me as a person. I was exposed to so many new people and cultures. Being surrounded by so much diversity was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. It helped me better understand the world and gave me a desire to learn more about it. Since being back in Palm Harbor at school I participate in clubs such as UNICEF, SADD, Multi-Cultural, University Booster, NHS, and am in the process of starting a new club. Outside school I enjoy hanging out with my friends, hammocking, camping (or anything that involves the outdoors), and trying new things. As for the future I am not sure what I want to do but I do plan on attending college when I return and hopefully have the opportunity to go abroad again in my college years. I am so excited to embark on this journey to Germany through Rotary and cannot wait to see what the future holds!!
