About Me

WWII Memorial in D.C.

Hello there! My name is Emmalee Mauldin and I’m glad you’re here!

I am a 20-something-year-old aspiring science journalist who loves travelling and photography. I attend the University of Arizona, located in Tucson, Ariz., majoring in journalism and minoring in environmental studies. I have a hodge-podge of passions so if you’re like me and you enjoy a little bit of everything, then you and I will get along very well!

Living in the desert, I have a passion for hiking, the environment, and conservation. I absolutely love going on backpacking trips and visiting our nation’s national parks. The conservation of water, energy, natural resources, and our planet’s wildlife is vitally important to me and I love learning about new ways to be more environmentally-conscious, so let me know if you have any tips or tricks!

I have completed two science communications internships at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, and recently completed my third and fourth NASA internships at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. I was an intern in social media and science communications for the Hubble Space Telescope at Goddard and I absolutely loved my internship! I will continue to post more information about NASA, NASA internships, and Hubble — so stay tuned!

Along with my passion for nature and space, I love make-up, working out, the arts, and reading. Visit my “Life” page for information on my favorite books, make-up products or musical productions. I may on occasion talk about living with depression or anxiety as a young adult in today’s society, or the absolute joy of having a brother who is 14 years younger than me.

Like I said — I am a hodge-podge of interests! I hope that you’ll stick with me through this journey called life and thank you for your support. It means more than I could ever describe.
