Emilie was one of the first five students I called when SPACE started and she has stuck with us ever since. SPACE student-turned-first-ever-intern-turned-leader, her strategic strength continues help cut the clutter and get right to the ethos of SPACE - why do we do what we do and how do we form the culture of global students for the future.
Off-the-charts adaptable, she's off to Ghana in the earlier part of this summer, with a pit stop in London, and will meet us in Austria as our team is en route. A walking GPS, that kind of travel for her is like you and I going to the mall. As a maximizer, she also ensures that we have strong finishes to what we start.
The state of Europe is on her heart naturally - she has spent almost half of her life in Norway - and no doubt Europe will be different because of her.
Emilie has been a leader on Cameroon2006 and Hungary2007 as well as having spent significant time serving in cross cultural contexts such as China, Ecuador, Trinidad and Seattle.
