October 2008 Student of the Month

Emilina

oct2008emilina.jpgEmilina has been working in the Reference and Instructional Services (RIS) department since January of 2008.  She is currently a sophomore and may choose Social Work for her major. She hasn't decided for sure yet!

In the RIS department, Emilina works at the Information Point, assists patrons, shelves books, works on the floor, and troubleshoots printer problems!  Emilina decided to work in the library because she loves to read and thought the library would be a good fit for her.

She was born in Bosnia but has lived in Waterloo, Iowa since she was seven years old.  In her free time, Emilina likes to read, play on the computer, hang out with her friends, listen to music and play her guitar.

If Emilina chooses to major in Social Work, she would also get her Master’s in Social Work here at UNI.  She hopes to be a clinical social worker or a social worker in the schools.
