Emily is a 19-year-old, born and raised North Carolina girl, who believes that confidence and perseverance is the key to achieving her dreams. As a freshman at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Emily is an Honors Carolina and Dean's List student, and is double majoring in journalism and political science. Emily is a reporter for her school newspaper the Daily Tar Heel and dreams to one day be a host on the Today Show. Emily is dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles in her state. Growing up, Emily was always moving, whether it was going rock climbing with her Dad or going on runs with her mom. This year Emily teamed up with Together We Feed and started her own program called S.E.E. Fitness, which stands for Starting At Home, Eating Healthy, and Exercise. Emily has traveled to schools across the state teaching kids about healthy lifestyle and body image.
