Resilience Studies

A fervent believer in the power of words, Aysha Emmerson seeks to use hers to spread kindness, create positive change, and inspire others. Aysha is a Junior from Victoria, BC, Canada, where she was immersed in a range of leadership initiatives, including acting as Head Prefect at her school, founding a girl’s empowerment program called “Self.I.E camps,” and speaking at WE Day 2017. At Harvard, she writes for The Crimson Editorial Board, works as a Peer Advising Fellow, and is a proud member of Women’s Club Soccer. She has helped teach a university course about excellence in negotiation, including how to better understand different personality types, and is excited to bring related lessons of collaboration, communication, and relationship-building to YLC. In her spare time, Aysha enjoys taking calculated risks, dancing (badly) with her roommates, and eating breakfast foods.
