Executive Team - Meet Emily Kelsey
Emily Kelsey, a sophomore in civil and environmental engineering, is the newly elected president of Engineers Without Borders (EWB). She grew up in Portland, Maine where she swam competitively. She first came to EWB as a freshman in 2010 after hearing about it during a college visit. Emily has been an active member ever since.
She served as vice president for two semesters and also travelled to Honduras with the travel team in March 2011. She truly believes in what EWB stands for and is especially committed to its mission of sustainability. She feels particularly drawn to the idea of bringing sustainable solutions to global challenges because this will allow for a healthy and happy future for the world as a whole.
Emily is interested in the way engineering can be used to solve global problems, and is always interested in supplementing her education with real world experience. Emily is an upbeat and motivated individual who is a driving force in EWB-UMaine.
