Hi everyone! My name is Emily, and I am a sophomore at Harvard planning on concentrating in geosciences and philosophy. I am from a small rural farming town in Minnesota (I think we are the nicest state so don’t be afraid to reach out to me at any time!) and am Lakota Sioux. I am part of the sailing team. I’m passionate about the outdoors and connections to nature as well as understanding the cycles of the earth that we live on. During the times when I am not busy learning about soil, I love making playlists, riding my motorcycle, cooking, and pulling spontaneous all-nighters. As someone who never planned on or pictured myself attending college, I know how daunting this next step can be. I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to answer any questions you have about Harvard life so please feel free to be in touch!
