Emmy, now 12, has her eyes on the skies and all the feathered creatures that fly within it. To help her dream of becoming a zoologist come true, Vantage has awarded her $1,000 toward a new computer during the annual Dream Big contest.
Since 2014, Vantage Credit Union has offered the Dream Big contest to members ages 11 to 17. They’re simply asked to share their dreams for the future through art, photography, writing or video. Emmy submitted a postcard with photos of her and birds, and also a video of her at the Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center.
Emmy volunteers at the Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center and helps take care of baby birds there. She calls herself a birder, and says that a new computer could help her learn more about birds and how to identify them.
