    I am an avid reader, a connoisseur of colorful art and textiles, and I have a passion for helping others succeed in their endeavors.  My name is Emily Blalock and I am the Hongqiao Upper School College Counselor.  I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing, and then received my Master of Science from the University of Georgia.  I taught Entrepreneurship and Textiles at the University of Georgia for ten years where service learning was an integral part of my classes.  During this time, I was the Career Counselor and helped hundreds of students find internships and careers in their fields.  I have been a visiting professor teaching entrepreneurship and micro-business in USA, Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Honduras.  I am delighted to be here in the world’s largest city, learning and growing with you!
