SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: EMMA SCHABERG

Emma entered LJA in Grade 6 after moving to Hawaii from California. She has enjoyed being a part of Wild Kids and is now a Junior Counselor for the program. She has also participated in Cross Country and was once selected as MVP.


"Academically, I love that LJA started I-Term this year; it gave us all a chance to learn outside of the classroom. I was lucky to go to Laos which was a great cultural and immersive learning experience."


Emma has applied to several colleges and is currently awaiting decisions. "I will select a school in California or Washington, and major in Environmental Studies, and maybe minor in business. "I want to be involved with an organization where I can continue to counsel younger kids, I love working with them! For now, Emma can often be found at the beach or riding her horse Payday.


Best Wishes, Emma. Be sure to visit us at LJA often!
