Biomedical Engineering, Tufts Univeristy
My name is Emily Day and I am from small town New Hampshire. Many engineers today have had the dream to pursue engineering since they were kids. Ironically, I never really had the dream to be an engineer when I was a kid, I was more so interested in the idea of just helping people. So, I began to think about medical school. It actually wasn't until one of my teachers in high school told me that I shouldn't pursue a degree relating to science and math because I "wasn't good at it" that I became interested in science. Its possible that this interest was the product of spite, but I actually became very curious about the world of science in medicine and wanted to learn more. Fast forward seven years later and here I am, pursuing a masters, and potentially PhD in biomedical engineering, a cross-section between engineering and medicine. Because of this negative experience I had at a young age, my goal is to connect with the younger generations and encourage them to chase their passions despite what other people say.

Fun Fact About Me
I love to meet new people as well as cook. Its a weird combination of items but I grew up working in my family diner, so I assume thats where it stems from.
