Name: Emily Trawick

Position: Editorial Team

Hello! My name is Emily Trawick, and I am currently a Senior at The University of Alabama majoring in Religious Studies with minors in Communication Studies and Real Estate. I am from a small town in southeast Alabama called Echo and I grew up on a chicken farm! Since chicken farming is not my passion, I decided to come to The University of Alabama when I graduated high school and have been so blessed by the experience it has given me. 

Currently, I spend most of my time working, doing CrossFit and other fitness things (like getting first place in my age division in my first trail triathlon), staying involved at my local church, and spending time with my friends and my dog Atlas. Atlas is an American Cocker Spaniel who thinks he is the king over my life (and maybe he is). We spend lots of time at the Will May Dog Park and learning new tricks. His best friend is a lab mix named Callie, and they love destroying all of the expensive toys I buy for them! 

Career-wise, in the future, I hope to be successful in the residential real estate market and maybe someday harness my inner Joanna Gaines to become a master house-flipper, and if I’m lucky, end up with my own tv show. But, when I’m not DIYing something, I also plan to pursue ministry part-time as I will be attending Highlands College (affiliated with Church of the Highlands) fall of 2022 as part of their worship leadership practicum. 

This year through Mosaic as part of the editorial team, I hope to gain new knowledge of the world of journalism that I can carry with me and use throughout the rest of my life in academic and career pursuits. I am so excited to work with a group of such brilliant and talented students on this remarkable project!
