Emma Ordway in Peru

Emma Ordway - Peru 

Originally from Portland, Oregon, Emma is currently a senior Human Science major at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Emma became an emergency medical technician during her freshman year and has been volunteering as an EMT ever since. She has also been involved in clinical research, social justice think tanks and Spanish language coursework. Always adventurous, Emma was sponsored by the Gracefully Yours, Fine Tea Company in 2016 to complete an independent three-month service trip to Cusco, Peru. While there, she worked as a medical assistant in a primary care clinic, immersed herself in rural Andean life, and taught English in an afterschool program. In her spare time, she enjoys cycling, cooking with friends, and exploring the opportunities the city has to offer. Emma is currently applying to physician assistant school and hopes to return to the northwest to practice medicine.

Five things she is passionate about:
1. Serving Others
2. The Environment
3. Traveling
4. Cycling
5. Language Learning
