Humans of Sophomore Honors: Emma Wiegandt

I interviewed Emma Wiegandt about her ideas on human nature. Two of the questions I asked her were, "When we’re gone, how do you want people to remember you?" and " What is the most important lesson you have learned in life?".

“I feel like not a lot of people know me. I kind of keep to myself. But for the people that do know me, I want them to see me as a kind person that they can always talk to, and feel safe around. Just knowing that I really care about them.”

“The most important lesson I’ve learned from life is to keep trying and working hard at something and not focusing on the negatives like, “Oh…. I can’t do this” or “ I’m going to fail” Just trying to look at it from all the positives. I think I’ve learned that from my parents and my teachers who were encouraging me to not be so negative about something.”

Our Democracy

The Our Democracy Education Project is a partnership with the National Writing Project and PhotoWings. PhotoWings' mission is to help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved. The project is also supported by the National Geographic Society and Catchlight, and explores the question, “What does democracy look like?” through the creation of a multimedia record of the state of local, everyday democracy today.
