Hi! My name is Emily and I am going to be a senior this upcoming Fall (still a crazy thought). I am majoring in Kinesiology, along with minoring in both Health Promotion and Spanish. After I finish my degree here at MSU, I plan to go to Nursing School to pursue a career as a Neo-Natal Intensive Care Nurse, or a Labor and Delivery Nurse. I love working with children, especially infants/babies. They just have this way about them that brings me so much joy and I would love to be able to help them and work with them daily.
I do know a bit about Medical Anthropology, but I am looking forward to this class deepening my knowledge of this subject!
I have a huge passion for traveling and I spent my entire summer of 2015 in Europe. The first half of my summer I spent my time living and studying in Northern Spain, taking classes towards my Spanish minor. The second half of my summer, I traveled all around Europe and found my favorite country in the world, Ireland. The picture I included in this post is me standing on the Cliffs of Moher in western Ireland, one of the most beautiful and natural sights to be seen. This trip was my first time in Europe and I loved being able to continue learning about the Spanish language, but I was also introduced to so many different cultures throughout my travels. I’m hoping to be able to incorporate some of my experiences with these European cultures in this course and all of its cultural aspects.
