Quote: "At the end of the day, the last thing you want to remember is the moment you gave up."

Idol: I am eternally grateful to my Hopkins rowing coach, Nat Case, who not only had an amazing career as one of Yale's earliest women's rowing coaches, but who also continues to dedicate his time to the sport today. He is the one who encouraged me to expect more from myself even when I wasn't sure that I could, and I've learned so much from him over the past three years.

Major: Right now, I'm still interested in everything.

Why Yale: “I think it goes without saying that Yale has earned its excellent reputation in both rowing and academics. But what attracted me the most to this school was the sense of community I felt on campus. It just felt right.”

Porter Says: “Emily is a strong, self-starter. She is a determined athlete who will really push to be her best.”

HS Coach: Nat Case
