Emilia is excited to be spending my first summer with Primitive Pursuits! She enjoys connecting with people and learning about their passions and what gets them stoked on life. If it involves nature and creating inclusive and engaging spaces for people to make connections with others, she always wants in. Growing up in Texas she loved exploring the creek and woods around her family's ranch. She headed up to Ithaca in 2016 to study Therapeutic Recreation, Outdoor Pursuits, and Gerontology at Ithaca College as well as to explore the beautiful land in upstate New York. This year will be her senior year at IC, and she can't wait to see where her next adventure takes her. Emilia enjoys being outside, fishing and finding ways to make people laugh. In the future, she hopes to create intergenerational outdoor programs that foster community connection and engagement in the outdoors.
