Emily Penaflorida

Emily is a young filipina woman who is starting as a freshman at Bethel College. Growing up Emily’s filipina culture has been long forgotten, but now as an adult her mission in life is to help generations of immigrants’ children like her to understand their roots and where they came from. When she found InterAction through the entrepreneur program, Startup Moxie, it sparked her passion for social justice and giving people a voice to tell their stories.
