Hello, my name is Emarie Marten. I am from the small town of Tulia, TX. I attend Tulia High School and this upcoming school year I will be a senior. During the school year I am involved in FCCLA, Theatre production, One Act Play and golf. In FCCLA I am vice president and in golf I am on the varsity team. During fall theatre production I am an actress but during One Act I am a crew member that does most of the backstage sound effects. One Act Play is a UIL event that does compete against other schools. This last year was an exciting year for our One Act Play. We competed at district, area and then regionals and then we advanced to state in Austin, TX.
I am active in my community. In my church I am in the Youth Leadership Group that plans a lot of the things that my youth group does. I also help out with Vacation Bible School which takes place during the summer. This summer I am going to three church camps, one of which is a leadership camp. Another trip I am taking with several members from my community this summer will be to Central Asia in July.
I am attending AHEC camp this summer which is a medical camp where I will job shadow several doctors. I am interning for several agencies including the City of Tulia, Swisher Memorial Hospital, Tulia Chamber of Commerce, Tulia Library, and I will be helping with the Summer Lunch Program. I hope to discover specific interests and develop work skills that will benefit me in the future.
