Majors: Health Studies, Leadership Studies, and Russian Studies

Hey, everyone! My name is Emma and I'm a senior from just outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Since coming to Richmond, I've gotten some pretty incredible opportunities and met students, faculty, and staff who have challenged me to grow personally and professionally. I've lived in Russia for seven weeks, conducted original research in all three of my major fields, and co-founded a campus organization with a fellow Scholar. Being a Richmond Scholar has provided me with a supportive yet motivating community from my first day here and provided me with resources that have enhanced my educational experience.

Scholar recruitment season is always an exciting time of year, as I enjoy the chance it presents to meet the variety of vibrant and unique people who have been selected. Like older Scholars did with me, I'm incredibly excited to share what I've learned with the next generation, so please don't hesitate to reach out!
