Emma is in the marching band and winter percussion ensemble at Rampart, where she plays the Marimba – think of a bigger, richer Xylophone.
Traveling and exploring new places is one of Emma’s favorite things to do and it doesn’t matter the destination. A few of her favorite places to visit include Costa Rica, New York City and Washington DC. Whether it’s the pulse of a big city, or the tranquility and peacefulness of the wilderness, Emma loves to experience new places and things.
Emma has been involved in Girl Scouts since the 1stgrade and will earn her Girl Scout Gold Award (the equivalent of the Boy Scout Eagle Scout Award) next year. She loves the sense of community and service projects, such as Operation Christmas Child, that being in Girl Scouts provides.
Reading novels, camping and fishing are favorite past times of Emma’s, and after graduating next spring she hopes to go to college and pursue a double major of History and Psychology, with a minor in Spanish.
