JWU Student Blogs

Emily Lemieux

Hi everyone! My name is Emily and I am a junior majoring in Media & Communications at Johnson & Wales. I am originally from a small town in the middle of the woods in Connecticut. I am a lover of exercise, dogs, and hiking. My major interests are photography, writing, blogging, and video editing. When I originally came to Johnson & Wales I was a culinary major, however, I ended up switching my major when I realized how well the media & communications program fit my interests. Immediately coming here, I noticed how diverse the student body seemed to be. Coming from a small town, it has been amazing to meet so many different people with so many different pasts. There are students here from all over the world who have already had so many different and amazing experiences. We have students from South Korea, South Africa, England, and anywhere else you could possibly imagine. Due to this, Johnson & Wales has become a mixing pot of all different cultures and stories. My goal is to find these stories and share them with you. This blog is a collection of stories from a mix of Johnson & Wales students. If you have a story that you would like to share please email me at elemieux2015@gmail.com. I can’t wait to hear your stories.
