Emily Vajo is a senior at my high school in central Maryland. She is involved in her school’s environmental programs and classes. She is the secretary of the Green Team and is currently working on getting her school “Green School Certified” by the Maryland Association for Environmental & Outdoor Education. Outside of school, Emily enjoys going to dance classes and attending competitions and shows with her team. She likes traveling to National Parks and taking photos and has recently taken trips to Yellowstone, Acadia, and Hawaii Volcano National Park. She plans on attending college for environmental studies or sustainability in the fall. Emily loves the environment and is excited to pursue her interest in conservation efforts.
