Emily '13
Da Vinci Design
Future Fashion Designer or Doctor

'A Renaissance Woman'


Her dream:
Emily’s education is her top priority. She has two very strong interests: fashion and medicine. “One dream of mine is to attend FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) and to design clothes or become an editor of a fashion magazine. My other dream is the complete opposite. I want to become an Obstetrician or a Gynecologist. I plan on going to a four-year university and eventually achieving a doctorate in whatever I do.”

Why Da Vinci? “I chose Da Vinci for my future. I purposely went to a high school where my friends weren’t going so that I would be able to focus on my education and my future.”

Favorite thing at Da Vinci: “The best thing about Da Vinci is the project-based learning. I’m a hands-on person and enjoy putting my time and effort into projects. I’ve gained more experience and practice with my public speaking skills which is helping me now and will help me in the future.”

On a first name basis: “Being at Da Vinci has been a great experience for me. This is the first time I can say that I know everyone’s first name in school. I feel comfortable in my environment and I can be myself. My leadership skills have really grown here with the group work activities that are assigned.”

Favorite project: “My favorite project would have to be the Take the Heat Water Insulator project. For this project, we needed to come up with something that stored 250 ml of water at 95 degrees Celsius and could not gain or lose more than two degrees in three minutes. This was fun for me because it involved trial and error of different materials and a class competition.”

Favorite book: Perfect Chemistry

Favorite pig-out food: pizza

Twin passions: “I’m really passionate about my education and sports. I’m really focused in school. I don’t just want to memorize information, I want to really understand it. I’m also very passionate about sports. Being athletic and staying fit are important to me.”
