India Volunteer 2013-14
Namaste! My name is Emma Latham and I am from Jersey City, New Jersey. I just graduated from McNair Academic High School, where I spent a lot of my time on the swim team, tutoring for NHS, and reading, of course. Though what I most love to do is cook. The daughter of a chef and a baker, most of my time growing up was spent in the kitchen, sampling, nibbling and stirring. This summer, I spent most of my time working at my dad's restaurant in New York City as an assistant to the pastry chef. I cannot wait to get to India not only for the strikingly different approach to fate and the beautiful culture that I have only glimpsed from afar, but also to trade in my typical American and French recipes for Indian ones! Saag Paneer! Gulab Jamun! Yum!
