In her essay, Emelyne stated that being able to take rigorous courses helped her grow as a student and person and prepared her for her future. Through support and encouragement, she was motivated to start Riverside’s Ubuntu African Club. As president, she learned the importance of leadership. She says, “by being encouraged to get away from my comfort zone, I signed up for medical apprenticeship programs, took science courses and challenged myself to be better each day.”
Two of her science teachers consider her driven, kind-hearted and ambitious.
