Emma Krab

Emma is a junior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, majoring in journalism and English with a minor in political science. She grew up in western Nebraska, spending her summers swimming in the Platte River and at Lake McConaughy, though she tried her best to spend her winters indoors. A lifelong reader and writer, Emma owes much of her appreciation for Nebraska wildlife to the descriptions of her favorite author, Willa Cather, as well as firsthand experiences of her rural background. She is beyond excited to create meaningful, engaging stories that help others recognize the beauty, history, and importance of the Platte.
