Emily Scheideler

Name and School

My name is Emily Scheideler and I go to school at Houston County High School in Warner Robins. This year is my senior year. My favorite subject was ninth grade Honors Biology which is why I chose to take this class.

Career Aspirations and College

I am planning on becoming a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Choosing a good Nursing school has been rather difficult. My brother is a Georgia Tech alumnus and I have been planning to attend for as long as I can remember, however; Georgia Tech does not offer a notable Nursing Program. I know that I want to be in Atlanta so I have begun considering Georgia State for undergraduate and possibly Emory for graduate.

Course and Other GAVS Expectations

Last year I was on Hospital Homebound for a significant part of the second semester. I didn't learn nearly as much as I did in school. I'm hoping that GAVS will be the best of both worlds and I can learn a lot while still being able to rest as needed. I'm also taking AP Literature and Composition and AP Statistics.

Other Facts About Me

I have a blood disorder in which my blood does not contain enough platelets. It is called ITP. My favorite book is After Dark by Haruki Murakami. My favorite movies are The Pianist and The Professional. My favorite shows are Breaking Bad and Project Runway. My favorite music artists include Moby, Joanna Newsom, and The Knife.
