Emily K.

My name is Emily and I am a high school junior from Louisville, Kentucky.  At my school I am active in student government, the student activities committee and the diversity leadership team. I also serve as a school ambassador, and run cross-country. I am the youngest of three girls and love to travel, entertain and cook. My project addresses two major issues in my community, poverty and hunger, and incorporates my passion for cooking.

My HERlead Project: Cooking up a Change

My program teaches underprivileged families healthy eating habits through informative cooking classes.
