Bio: Kailey is a graduating senior double majoring in Linguistics and French Studies. While at Emory, she has been engaged with many groups on campus including serving as the President of the Emory Francophone Club, the Communications Director of the Linguistics circle, and working an on-campus job backstage at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. She also spent a semester abroad with EDUCO Paris in the Spring of 2019 which she believes contributed
greatly to her success in the French major. She will be going on to pursue a Master of Science in Applied Language and Intercultural Studies in French at the Georgia Institute of Technology where she has been offered a subsidized Graduate Research Assistantship. Beyond that, she hopes to employ her skills in a teaching profession centered around the French language and to take time to explore more Francophone cultures.
