Emma Stierle is a sixteen-year-old junior at Newtown High School. Ever since she was little, she loved understanding and talking to different people. This led her into musical theater, one of her main extracurricular activities. In addition to performing, she loves directing and working with children. Throughout high school she has also become more interested in learning how people function, which has inspired to study psychology. Combining her interest in the study of people as both an art and a science has been a natural progression, and she now hopes to study psychology in college, where she can be involved in conducting scientific studies and continuing to understand others.
