Hello, I’m Kathy Emery from Armstrong, and I’m really interested in traveling, camping, basketball, dance, and hairdressing.
I have Traveled to California at age 9 (for Disney land of course 🙂 ), Thailand when I was 13, Disney World in Florida With my family in the summer of 2010, England, France, The Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium when I was 17 with my high school, and The Bahamas for my 18th Birthday this past March. As you can see I love to travel. It has been a passion of mine since a young age. I look forward to all my future travels.
I have been camping for the past 6 years, and I absolutely love it. There’s nothing more amazing then being able to lounge around all day with your friends and family. Camping gives me the opportunity to sit back and relax, but still be able to think about life.
I have been apart of my school’s basketball team since I was in grade 7, that’s 6 years! Again this is another activity that I love, I am able to just let go; I don’t have to think about anything but the game. Unfortunately, being in grade 12 this year was my last year playing high school ball. I want to thank my coach’s and all the girls I played with for all the help and inspiration; I don’t know if I could have made it so long without all your help.
Being a very active person, just basketball was not enough physical activity for me. So I enrolled into my school’s dance program, and have danced all sorts of dances for 4 years now. In these 4 years, I have been taught to show my emotions better, as well as act. In dance, it is not always about the emotions, but about playing a roll in a dance with a story.
Also, within my high school I am apart of the ‘Me to We’ group and ‘Journalism’ also known as ‘Yearbook’. I have been apart of the ‘Me to We’ group for the past 4 years, and attended 1 ‘We Day’ down in Vancouver. That was an amazing opportunity that I am so grateful to have been given, it was nice seeing all the other children out there that want to make difference in the world. Along with this group, I meet up twice a week with a few other people and we work on our schools yearbook. We take pictures, sort them, design pages etc. This years book is going to be the second yearbook I have helped with.
Another one of my passions in life is Hairdressing. I have enjoyed doing hair since I was a little girl. I remember from grade 2-4 I would always try to fit as many hair accessory’s as possible in my hair. So when I heard that my high school was going to offer a trades college course, I applied right away. I was accepted and completed a 10 month course. I look forward to hopefully getting a job in the industry.
