This lovely lady is Emily Smith. Emily comes to us from Lake City, Florida, and just finished her freshman year studying biology and management for medical professionals while and next year will be taking on the role of event coordinator for the Pre-Med/Dent Club. After an unusual ending to the school year, Emily kindly answered some questions about herself.
What is your dream job?
I would love to be a doctor! Currently choosing between being an OBGYN, ER, or surgeon.
How does that compare to what you wanted to be when you were young?
I have always wanted to work in the medical field. I had a phase where I wanted to be a nurse because a lot of people in my family are nurses. Then I switched to wanting to be an esthetician because I love skincare!
What is something you’re passionate about?
I am really passionate about health and that includes skincare, fitness, diet, and overall wellness. God gave us our bodies and we owe it to him to keep it in the best shape we can!
What is your favorite thing about being a part of the Pioneers family?
I love how inclusive the Pioneers family is. The campus is not very big, so it feels like one big family. Everyone is super friendly, and it feels like a second home.
What is your favorite place in the world?
Costa Rica! I lived there for 8 months when I was 7, and I loved it! It is such a beautiful place with loads of culture!
What was the last book you read?
The last book I read was “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Mitch Albom. A very inspirational book! I highly recommend it!
What is your favorite type of food?
I love any type of food, as long as it is vegan and full of flavor!
What is your favorite Bible verse?
My favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11. It says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” I love this verse because it comforts me when I have big decisions to make. It is comforting to know that God is in control and that he has my best interest at heart.
Thank you, Emily, for sharing a bit about yourself with your Pioneers family! We can’t wait to see you soon!
