My name is Emily Butler, and I am a first-year at The Ohio State University. I’m from a suburb outside of Cleveland, Ohio, and have wanted to be a Buckeye for the majority of my life. I graduated Summa Cume Laude from North Royalton High School. Throughout high school, I was involved with various clubs and volunteer programs, and have really developed a strong connection with and adoration towards my community. Health Science Scholars will allow me to pursue my passion through service projects and the establishment of a tight-knit group. I am currently in the Pre-Nursing program, and am hoping to be granted entrance into the College of Nursing in 2018. Dependent on the path I take here at Ohio State, I would like to become a Nurse Practitioner or a Pathologist. Through recent experiences I have created an immense bond with medicine, and finally feel confident and at home in the field of health.
