Family is very important to Emma Linkugel as she begins her transition from high school to college. Whether it’s spending time with her Mom, grandmother, or older sister Maria – who Emma considers her hero.
“She has taught me so many things about growing up,” said Emma, who will graduate from Saint Henry District High School in Erlanger, Ky., next year. “We always have so much fun when we hang out or go on girls’ trips. She is someone I can look up to.”
Emma enjoys all her classes at Saint Henry – especially literature, anatomy, biology, and government. She is also very active in sports and extracurricular activities like cross country, Art Club, National Honor Society, Campus Ministry, and her school’s healthcare careers club.
Emma also likes to “take a walk in nature, get boba tea with my friends, paint, or draw,” she said. She takes pride in her academic achievements and joining her school’s cross country team, and Emma plans to attend medical school to become a doctor and help deliver newborns.
Education, protecting the environment, and protecting human life are the most important issues for Emma. She also participates in the Bill of Rights Institute’s Think the Vote campaign and enjoys seeing feedback from other students.
“I love to see others’ thoughts and compare them with my own,” she said.
