Emma Colucci '03 has held a passion for community development and a love for sports most of her life. After spending 12 years as a ‘Lifer’ at CDS, Emma pursued a BA in Communications & Sociology at Concordia University, where she also played four years on the Women’s Varsity Soccer team.
She then went on to earn a Master’s through a joint program between Ryerson and York Universities, writing her thesis on sport as a tool for development and conducting her research in South Africa. After graduating, Emma worked briefly as an intern for a small development agency, Athletes for Africa, taught English in Thailand, and worked on the 2011 Census for Statistics Canada.
This combination of life experiences led her to the global organization Right To Play in 2011.
