Gabriella Gates, Editorial Editor

Em Purinton, a senior at MASH, is an Irish dancer. She has been a dancer for 9 years. Her favorite memory of Irish dancing is when she took first place in every category at a competition. In addition to her passion for dancing, she plays the ukulele, guitar, and she sings. Em has made a studio recording of some of her songs. In school, Em loves biology class but struggled with APUSH. She was considering dropping the class, but she stuck with it and ended up with an A by the end of the year. Em would advise her peers that sometimes you have to sacrifice the things you want to do in the present so you don’t have to sacrifice what you want to do in the future.
