Emily is currently in her fourth year at Boise State. She is working towards a double major in French and French Secondary Education, a minor in Visual Arts, and an Art Teaching Endorsement. During her sophomore year at Boise State, she had the incredible opportunity to spend six months living in Lyon, France. During this experience, she lived with a French family, attended a French university and traveled throughout Europe. In her free time she loves playing volleyball, drawing, and being a part of the international community at Boise State. What she loves about learning languages is her ability to connect with people in a more authentic way. She looks forward to inspiring students at One Stone about the French language and culture, not only educating them about the grammatical aspects of French, but the benefits of knowing another language and how it can aid them in the future.
