Emily Schnell

REP - Leader of High School Ministry

Hello everyone, my name is Emily Schnell. I am a sophomore here at St. Norbert College and am originally from Lake in the Hills, Ill. I am majoring in Sociology with a minor in Psychology. I hope to be a social worker in an inner city setting after graduate school.

I am a returning catechist, having helped Olivia Poepping with the elementary age group last year. I am an easy-going person who loves to laugh. I love to spend time with my family and friends. I am passionate about things I love. I put my whole heart and soul into them.

Major: Sociology
Minor: Psychology
Hometown: Lake in the Hills, Ill.
High School: Marian Central Catholic
Home Church: Elizabeth Anne Seton, Crystal Lake, Ill.

Hopes for the year: As a Cathechist this year, I hope to build relationships with the students I minister to while helping their faith continue to grow. I hope to create an atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and where we can speak openly and know there won't be any judgements. I am looking forward to further deepening my faith, while hopefully making someone smile along the way.
