Emily is a senior at Barnstable High School. She has been Irish step dancing for over 11 years and has competed in many F eis (competitions), as well as a variety of shows including Tony Kenney's "Christmas Time in Ireland". Through step dancing, something she truly loves, Emily is able to keep her Irish heritage alive. She remembers overnights at her grandparents' house listening to their stories about how they took a boat to America. Emily has been fortunate to see some of the places she's heard so much about as she enjoys traveling as well as sailing and going to the beach. She volunteers in the Barnstable School Department with both seventh and second graders. Emily is exploring several southern colleges, with her sights on a career in hospitality or event planning.
