Danielle Emma joins the Iona College row team as a freshman rower after graduating from Syosset High School. Born in Syosset, NY to parents Frank and Vicky Emma, Danielle has one sister, Nicole, 16.
Emma is considering a career in education and feels Iona was a “perfect fit because of its size and distance from home.” Emma has done community service and participated with the Best Buddies, whose mission is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
