Meet Emma

Thanks for stopping by to take a peak at my blog. This blog has followed me along on a Fulbright year teaching English in Ourense, Galicia, Spain, a semester studying Spanish and human rights in Buenos Aires, Argentina, holds many reflections about my most recent reads, and acts as a digital scrapbook for many moments in between.

Although my Fulbright travels have come to an end, this blog holds so many memories from abroad and occasionally has updates about books read and new experiences. Thank you for reading!

Meet Emma

I am a law student at the University of Michigan Law School, graduating in 2022. I am a former Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Ourense, Spain and 2018 graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a B.A. in English, Spanish, and Global Studies, with minors in Digital Humanities, History, Ethnic Studies, and Latin American Studies.

Outside of school and work, my interests include hanging out with cute dogs, technology & coding, exploring new corners of our planet, reading diverse authors, seeking out the very best Thai & Vietnamese food near me, yoga, spin, and barre, and investing in youth and minorities in my community. My heart is with my friends and family in Omaha & Lincoln, Nebraska, and I root for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the Greenbay Packers, and now Michigan too, Go Blue!
