About Emily Brett
Hailing from Derby, England, Emily has had a life filled with adventure ever since she can remember. Now living in Cleveland, Ohio, Emily attended Laurel School where she was the President of the Model United Nations Delegation and the Awareness Alliance. Her intense curiosity about sustainable international development and budding economic regions led her to study in Washington D.C. at The School for Ethics and Global Leadership (SEGL) her junior year.
