Emily Steingard ’22
Speech Pathology Major, with a Minor in Spanish
"I always enjoyed learning Spanish because it came naturally to me. In my Spanish courses at St. Joseph’s, we read and discussed short stories, poems and plays by writers from different countries that gave me a deeper appreciation of the language, as well as Latin American culture and history. I am an aspiring speech-language pathologist, and my goal is to work with the bilingual and Spanish-speaking population."
