Hi, I am Emily Ames. I am 19 years old and will be a sophomore at the University of South Carolina this fall. Playing sports has been a big part of my life. I have played sports such as basketball, softball, gymnastics, swimming, lacrosse, and soccer. I was a Varsity rower all throughout high school at SARC. Working with kids is something that I love to do. I started babysitting as soon as I could and have been a camp counselor at local camps during previous summers. Teaching kids to play sports that I loved when I was their age, and still do, is something that I have a passion to do!
