Hello, my name is Emily Sarah Dowler. I live in LaRue, Ohio and graduated from Elgin High School in 2013. My family consists of my mom Sheryl, my dad Phillip, and my brother and sister Whitney and Jude. I have one dog thats a mix between a Pug and a Doberman Pincher her name is Cleo. I am currently attending The Ohio State University Marion Campus as a Social Work major. I have a passion for History, and Music. I originally wanted to be an Education major where I could teach high school History. Throughout school I loved music and still do. I played trumpet all the way throughout school, and was also a big part of the school choir. In school I choose to focus more on my grades than my extracurricular activities leading me to join The National Honor Society, and many clubs such as schoolastic challenge. Some of my hobbies include fishing, playing trumpet, and playing with my puppy Cleo.
One thing that stuck with me as interesting was when they said Pineapple was assertive with older people. this stuck with me because it made me think of the stereotypical little girl who gets mouthy with adults. we know she's assertive with older people because in the book it says so. "She can be assertive also when she talks to grown ups and seems unaware that she is often going just a bit to far(Kozol 24)."
