Padua 360

Emily M. ’22
Emily is a Junior at Padua Academy. She took Journalism as a Freshman and is back to be Padua’s youngest editor-in-chief! As a writer, she won two awards at the state level and one at the national level for her articles. She is excited to be back in the class after her year away.

“I'm excited to see what the staff writers can do and what they can produce,” she said.

Emily’s favorite part of Padua is getting to know her teachers. She is most excited about her AP Lang class. Her favorite band is Twenty One Pilots, favorite food is Caesar salad, and favorite place is Disney World.

Emily is the oldest sibling, with one sister, who is a Freshman at Padua, and three step-siblings. She also has two cats, Sunny and Zeppelin.

She splits her time between her parents' homes in Wilmington and Middletown. “It's weird having divorced parents, but I'm so used to it,” she said. “My mom remarried four years ago and I have three step siblings. It's always boatloads of fun.”

Aside from journalism, Emily is involved in many activities. She enjoys dance, stage crew at Salesianum, acting in Padua theatre, Peer Leadership Team, and lectoring at mass. 

“I'm sort of a Crew Mom [at Salesianum] because it's mostly the guys who might do stupid things and I keep them in line,” Emily said. “I just really liked working with the actors and the stage crew people, especially during Ragtime.”

Emily spent her summer volunteering at the Air Mobility Command Museum in Dover, Delaware. 

“I needed to be here [at the museum] all the time. And before you know it, I was going three times a week.”

Inspired by multiple family members who have served in the military, she hopes to one day become an officer in the Air Force, working in either flight test engineering or in acquisitions and logistics. 

“I’m excited to serve my country while also pursuing a STEM career,” said Emily. “There’s something I love about the opportunity to put on the uniform and work in that military environment.”
