My name is Emma! I am a sophomore at the University of Iowa, double-majoring in English & Creative Writing and Ancient Civilizations with a minor in Korean Studies. I have studied abroad at Ewha Womens University in Seoul, South Korea, and Korea University. I love learning about global cultures, such as mythology, to anthropology subjects, such as fashion, literature,
entertainment, and many more. In my free time, I watch a lot of international television and listen to music from all over the world. I also have a passion for reading, which has inspired my professional goal of becoming a published author. Growing up, I also fostered a love for video games thanks to my mother and father being avid gamers. And sometimes I am known by my friends for knowing random facts or stories! Ask me anytime, and I’ll share one!
