Students of Loyola: Emily Morley

Students of Loyola: a take on the very exciting, emotional, and raw, “Humans of New York.” I want to capture the students at Loyola in a way that has not been done before. I want people’s joy and struggles to be out there, without forcing anything too much.

 

Meet Emily Morley:

 

 

Who is the most influential person in your life? 

The most influential person in my life is, without a doubt, my mother. Although we have not always seen eye to eye when I was a young, hormonal teenager, she is my very best friend. She is the strongest person I have ever met, battling cancer 3 times while raising me and my sister, and never once complaining throughout all of it. She has been through so much and she has never failed to set a perfect example of a strong, driven, and loving woman. She has shown me what true strength looks like and she has taught me that life is full of surprises and that hard times are inevitable, but I will always carry with me the things she has taught me, and continue to grow into the strong, loving woman that she has taught me to be. I hope to be half the woman she is someday.
