"For we walk by faith, not by sight." -2 Corinthians 5:7
Hello, my name is Emma Cooper and I am in my junior year and St. Croix Falls High School. I was born on March 27, 2003,
making me 16 years old as I write this. I live at home with my mom, dad, and sister, Kelsey (13). I also have a brother,
Tyler (18) but he recently went to college and is attending the University of Minnesota. Some of my favorite things to do
are play sports, bake and hang out with my family are friends. Additional fast facts about me are that my favorite color is
purple, my favorite food is pasta and my favorite shows to watch are anything on HGTV, especially ones with
In school, I am involved in student council, clowns, kinship, culture club, NHS and environmental club in addition to sports.
For sports, I play basketball, volleyball, and softball through the school, but also play on a club team for volleyball
outside of school and volunteer as a coach for my club.
I am very passionate about being involved with the youth as I aspire to be an elementary education teacher in the future.
To obtain my degree in education, I hope to attend a private school out of state, but I am unsure of the exact school.
Additionally, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. I have been blessed with a tight-knit group of friends since
elementary school. We share a lot of the same interests and passions, making our lives outside of school very connected. We
have won three regional championship titles together and hope for more in the future, two in volleyball and one in basketball.
My friends also attend the same church as me deepening our bond even more. My faith makes up my philosophy on life as I try
to act out the teachings of the Bible and follow in God's example. My family is also a big part of my story. I love to hang
out with my family and try new things with them. My family is close as we see each other just about every weekend even though
we live hours apart. Another passion of mine is traveling. I wish to see all of the fifty states by the end of my lifetime,
and as of now, I have lucky enough to see twenty of the states. I also want to travel to other countries and learn about
their various traditions. My love for travel and adventure is perhaps my greatest quality. I love the adrenaline rush that
comes with experiencing all of these new and exciting things.
