Emma Van der Aarde
Born and raised in Lincoln, England, I moved to Martinsburg, WV for my junior year of High School. A veritable fish out of water, I took comfort in the outdoors and all the beauty this new home has to offer. As a freshman, I participated in Adventure WV's Wilderness orientaion trip, and fell more deeply in love with West Virginia. I enjoy hopping, skipping, jumping, and frolicking, as well as sedentary pursuits like knitting, binge-watching Netflix whilst cradling a jar of Nutella, and tutoring.
I am a tutor with the Honors Learning Center and I love sharing knowledge and my passion for learning with my students. I hope to spend this summer inspiring incoming freshman to love this program and to find a home at WVU, as I have.
