Emily Seraphine bronstein
Emily, 15, moved from Atlanta, Georgia to Park City, Utah one year ago. She will be entering 10th grade at Park City HIgh School in the fall. Emily started The Seraphine Project in January 2017 as one aspect of preparing for Bat Mitzvah (a rite of passage to adulthood in the Jewish faith). Emily long knew she had a heart for others and wanted to do something focused on "girls helping girls." In lieu of presents or a party, Emily asked friends and family to instead support The Seraphine Project. And now the Project continues to evolve and expand thanks to many others who share her passion helping at-risk girls. Emily also loves to act in plays and musicals, as well as play tennis and ski. Emily's parents, Katie and Greg, and brother, Miles, are also passionate supporters and strong advocates of The Seraphine Project.
