As a military brat, Emma Dewey has more experience with adapting to new places than the typical 15-year-old.
Before Omaha, Dewey lived in Gretna, Nebraska. Before Gretna, she and her family were stationed in Robins Air Force Base in Georgia. Before Georgia, her family was stationed in the Netherlands, where she was born.
All of the moving around does not faze her.
“I guess I don’t mind because I’ve done it so much,” she said.
Since the beginning of her education, Dewey has attended seven schools. She is currently a sophomore at Abraham Lincoln High School in Council Bluffs.
When it comes to making friends, Dewey says it is easy for her to “fall into the crowd.”
