Emily Firment ’11

  • 650_Emily Firment 11Student alumnae/i activities co-chair
  • Staff assistant, University Development Office, Harvard University

Involvement: Wheaton College Young Alumnae/i of Boston member, 2012–13; student-alumnae/i athletic reception volunteer, 2012; Student Government Association president, 2011

Connection: “I am a drastically different person today than I was when I walked onto campus in January 2008. I attribute that change to the professors, administrators and peers I met, and I want to give back to a school that gave so much to me.”

Goal: “As a young alum who is still connected with many current students on campus, I want to help strengthen the relationship between current students and alumnae/i. I hope to find a way to engage students with the board prior to their senior year.”

Surprise: “Growing up, I loved watching the movie musical ‘Newsies.’ It is still a favorite. My sister and I could both sing the entire movie and would switch who sang which parts. I even wrote a paper about the historical accuracy of the movie in high school.”
