About me: Hi there! My name is Emi. I am majoring in Spanish and minoring in Chinese. I spent Fall 2013 at the University of Hawaii through National Student Exchange, and I studied abroad in Cadiz, Spain in Fall 2013. I am all about health and wellness; my sister and I run our fitness inspiration social media outlets under the name Benching Beauties. I am also interested in education and international engagement. I have applied for the Fulbright grant to teach English in Taiwan after graduation. What I just said may sound overwhelming, and I want to tell you that this was not my plan at all when I was admitted to UW. I was a Freshman Direct admit to the Foster School of Business, inexperienced in and uncertain about everything. I wished I had had someone I could direct questions to. So, please, if I can help you in any way, do not hesitate to contact me!
