Emily is one of those people who when you meet her you instantly feel like you have known each other for years and could easily be best friends for life. This girl is constantly making me laugh, I mean every time around her she makes me laugh so hard my stomach actually aches. Her silly sense of humor is kind of her signature thing and I loved that we were able to capture it so well in her session.
When scouting out locations we had one perfect place in mind, a camp that she had spent many years at as a child. Emily shared with me memories of playing in a little stream on the property amongst so many other activities. When we were unable to use the campsite I quickly found another location that gave us a stream to play in and woods to explore.
What I love most about Emily is her huge heart. She loves caring and nurturing young children all while having the patience of a saint but her passion lies with children with special needs. As a member of the Health Sciences Academy at ADMHS Emily had the opportunity to be exposed to a number of healthcare industry careers. As a senior she was required to have an internship for at least 135 hours in an area of study she was passionate about.
After she shared with me her struggles to find a good fit, I made a quick call because I knew exactly where she needed to be. After spending her summer at the same place my little girl took speech therapy at for years, Emily expanded her love from occupational therapy to also include speech therapy as well.
In the Fall Emily will be attending UNC Greensboro to major in Speech Pathology. When her acceptance letter arrived my heart just exploded with pride! Knowing that she is going to help others find their words just like others did for my daughter, yep…I’m going to get teary eyed again! By the way she is pretty much my daughter’s everything in life and if I let her I’m sure she would go live with Emily and forget all about me.
Emily, as graduation day is so close I know you are filled with excitement and and also a bit of anxiety of what is to come next. I know that you have found your calling in life. Rest assured you are right where you are supposed to be. Your drive and your determination have gotten you this far and I know you aren’t going to stop now. You, my love are going to make a HUGE difference in this world and touch so many people’s lives! I’m so proud of you! Love you!
