Emily Templin is a Human Development major/Biological Sciences minor with commitment to research and service. In her internship, Emily asked to be paired with the most behaviorally difficult students. She operated from a strengths-based approach that all students can be successful. With her independent and collaborative research, she examined the benefits of positive school climate and the risks when teens feel they don’t have sufficient financial resources. Emily’s service brought together UC Davis students of various faiths to identify common causes that are supported by all religions, such as issues of social justice. Emily has truly created a community of inclusion in all her endeavors
