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 will continue cataloging life through my experiences as a 1L at Michigan Law, books read, and other unknowns and uncategorized ideas. Thank you for reading, interacting, and following me on a journey that is ever changing and ever challenging.

Meet Emma

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.

Next up: My legal education begins in fall 2019 at the University of Michigan Law School. I am excited to learn about international law with a focus on cyber security and technology in a national security context while prioritizing social justice and human rights.

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 disadvantaged minorities in my community as a teacher and mentor. 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!
