Oi, my name is Emily O’Day and I’m 17 and a senior at Dunwoody High School. I am so happy and grateful to say that I will be going to Brazil next year. I live in Dunwoody, GA with my parents and an older brother who is a sophomore at UGA- Go Dawgs! Unfortunately, I have no pets, but I am certain I will have two dogs when I grow up. My favorite subject in school would definitely be math, but that doesn’t reflect my love for books and fictional worlds! I adore playing club and school volleyball as a libero and outside hitter. I started playing volleyball when I was in middle school and once I reached high school I started to play club volleyball at NAVC. I also do Taido Karate and have been attending since I was 5 years old. I received my black belt in 2015 and love performing and competing in tournaments. Actually, my father and brother have also been attending the same karate for years and received their black belts as well. I also love cooking. Whenever I’m stressed I always run straight to the kitchen and bake away my worries. Though another room I often find myself in is the ceramics room. I specifically love throwing on the wheel and making abstract pots. I am incredibly excited to become an “estudante de intercâmbio” (exchange student) for an experience of a lifetime in one of the most beautiful and cultural countries in the world as well as become a part of the awesome community that Rotary International has created. I look forward to keeping you updated, but until then... Beijos, tchau!
