Emily Meyer is a senior at Saint Joseph High School. When she was just five years old, she began playing soccer and then track to keep up her physical conditioning. She volunteers her time as a member of several school clubs, such as S.O.U.L. Team, a spiritual outreach group, H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Endure), a group that helps the immediate needs of the disadvantaged in our community, and Student Ambassadors, a leadership group helping underclassmen. She enjoys giving her time tutoring underprivileged children at the local Saint Vincent de Paul Society. She enjoys spending her free time with her three sisters and playing her flute to relax.
“We do not learn from experience . . . we learn from reflection on experience.” (John Dewy). Already, Startup Moxie has given me lots of great experiences to reflect on. I have been given many opportunities to strengthen my patience, communication skills, and my ability to work with others in class projects and discussions.”
