Emma Moore

I am an Undergraduate at Northeastern University



Please see my charitable wish list.

I hope you create a profile page like this and a charitable wish list, too.




About Me



I am the biggest animal-lover you have ever met! That includes my dog and cat (Taco and Tofu), my horse (Edgar Allan Pony), the hummingbirds outside my mom’s kitchen window, the wildlife I see when camping Yosemite, or the whales and elephants that I hope to see in person someday. This passion has shaped my studies, my weekend adventures, my philanthropy, and my career plans.



What People Call Me

My name is Emma, but my friends often call me, "Em."


What I Plan to do with My One Wild and Precious Life

After graduate school, I plan to become a climate scientist and advocate. I want to continue my research on how best to combat climate change and get better policies put into action!


My Academics

I’m a junior, majoring in Environmental Science with a minor in Psychology. Because climate change threatens all my animal friends (and all of us!), I am excited to be working in Dr. Henderson’s lab on research into alternative energy sources.


My Extracurriculars

Outside of class, I am the Vice President of theWildlife and Conservation Club. When we are not out hiking and doing clean-ups, we work to spread awareness of the importance of protecting our natural environment. I’m also the Secretary of my sorority, Delta Delta Delta. As the name implies, we are all about change, and we support The Sierra Club. We are the Green Greeks! We maintain a sustainable lifestyle at our sorority house, and we promote that practice to all Greek life on campus!


My Athletics

I’m the goalkeeper on an undefeated club soccer team. I’ve met so many amazing people, and I love the competition. I’m also the co-captain of the intramural tennis team. We hope to bring home the championship this year!


My Jobs and Internships

I interned at the United Nations Foundation the year before last, and I got a great internship with Changing The Present this past summer. I loved it! It was a great chance to make an impact, assume a tremendous amount of responsibility, and learn so much. It was also a lot of fun working with wonderful people from around the world. Now, I am continuing with them as a Community Engagement Intern, helping raise awareness at my college.


My Honors and Awards

Dean’s List every semester ・ Sorority Member of the Year ・ Environmental Research Grant


My Leadership

Founding two college clubs and representing my dorm in Student Senate have helped me develop my leadership skills.


My Heroes

My role models and heroes are Nelson Mandela, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Jane Goodall. Nelson Mandela's unwavering commitment to justice and equality during South Africa’s apartheid era inspires me. His resilience, forgiveness, and tireless efforts for reconciliation continue to shape a better world. Thich Nhat Hanh was a Zen master, peace activist, and prolific writer. His teachings on mindfulness and compassion resonate deeply with me. His emphasis on inner peace as a foundation for global harmony is profoundly impactful. As a primatologist and environmentalist, Jane Goodall’s groundbreaking research on chimpanzees transformed our understanding of animal behavior. Her advocacy for conservation and sustainable living motivates me to protect our planet for future generations.


My Grit and Determination

I work two part-time jobs to pay my school expenses and help support my younger siblings. Nothing is going to stop me!


Skills I Have

Research ・ Data analytics (I love Python) ・ Academic writing ・ How to care for a baby elephant


Skills I Want to Develop

Leadership ・ Communications ・ Design Thinking


My Languages

I love learning new languages! I’m fluent in French and can get around in Spanish. I just started learning Italian as well, grazie per aver letto la mia pagina!


Places I Have Lived

New York City, Boston, Boulder


Places I Have Traveled

Yosemite, Cozumel, Aspen, Paris, Alaska


My Creative Pursuits

I am an avid reader, an aspiring writer, and a passionate photographer. I am also teaching myself how to play the guitar.


My Sense of Community

I am very involved in my extended family, my tight circle of wonderful friends, and the great women on my sport teams.


My Favorite Book(s)

Silent Spring, by Rachel Carson


My Favorite Entertainment

Music and movies. I go hear live music all the time (my favorite band is Five Second of Summer), and Netflix is my guilty pleasure (my favorite movie is The Hangover).


My Music

I have been playing guitar and keyboards since I was in sixth grade. Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page are my heroes! My pals and I have a band, and we get a gig at least a couple times a month. Of course, I also like listening to music, whether live or on Spotify.


My Favorite Podcast(s)

This American Life


My Favorite Quote

“The future will either be green or not at all.” — Bob Brown


Other Things I Want to Mention

I am the first of seven children, and that position has taught me how to assume responsibility and help others.





What I am Doing for a Better World




My Thoughts on Making a Difference

Our generation is dedicated to making the world more just and sustainable, and I am inspired by the words and actions of so many good people. I am dedicated to doing my part, and maybe I can encourage others to do the same.


My Favorite Causes

Environment ・ Climate Change ・ Animal Welfare


Regions and Countries I Care About

Africa ・ Central America ・ South Asia ・ Ireland ・ United States


Metropolitan Areas I Care About

CA: San Diego-Chula Vista-Carlsbad ・ DC: Washington-Arlington-Alexandria ・ NH: Boston-Cambridge-Newton ・ NY: New York-Newark-Jersey City


Ethnic Communities I Care About

African American ・ Latino ・ Native Americans


Religious Communities I Care About

Buddhism ・ Catholic ・ Native American Religions


My Favorite Nonprofits

The Sierra Club ・ ASPCA ・ World Wildlife Fund ・ 350.org ・ Save the Elephants


My Sustainable Lifestyle

I make an effort to live sustainably because every person’s choices make a difference in the fight against climate change. I am vegan, recycle, avoid single-use plastic, and bike whenever I can.


My Volunteering and Community Service

I volunteer weekly at the local garden to provide sustainable food to families in need. I also plant trees and remove invasive species bi-weekly for theWildlife Conservation Club. Each summer, I go abroad to work on wildlife conservation. We protect elephants and rhinos, and we care for those that cannot return to their native habitats. I am also a Community Engagement Intern for the Environment with Changing The Present.


My Charitable Fundraising

Most of my charitable fundraising has been through my sorority, and last year we raised twelve thousand dollars for Sierra Club. I was also proud to raise four hundred dollars for Children’s National Hospital through Thon, our college danceathon.


My Charitable Wish List on Changing The Present

I love the idea of people making meaningful donations instead of buying unneeded presents; it is a much more rewarding way for all of us to show our love. Here is my charitable wish list for a better world.
