What is it about music that speaks to us? Is it the lyrics, the artist, the instrumental components, or even a single line? Much of music consists of patterns and messages the listener takes in to feel a certain way about a situation. However, once you start listening deeply and meticulously to a piece of music, Emily explains how you find reasons for it to make you feel differently than you before wished. Emily Elhilow is a senior at Saint Andrew's School in South Florida. She was a serious and competitive beach volleyball player for most of her life until a recent injury. During recovery, she found herself back working on her musical talents to start song writing. In that process birthed her original song, "The Way It'll Be", and a collection of others with it.

Is this person flirting with me? This question has plagued us from nearly the beginning of time. Social anthropologist Jean Smith, or ‘flirtologist’ if you will, demonstrates her 6 simple steps known as “H.O.T. A.P.E.” to help answer that very question. And it will forever change your perception of flirting from being a stranger’s evaluation of your worth into what it should be: a fun game!

Jean's purpose in life is understanding how people flirt. And people flirt differently in different cultures. She uses her background as a cultural and social anthropologist to help teach people how to flirt – to gain confidence and happiness in their lives by assisting them to projective a positive image of themselves. , she uses research and studies to emphasize the skills that we can all learn to interact more effectively. Jean also uses practical activities and interaction to bridge the brain and the body and apply the information to make our daily lives more rewarding. The basis of Jeans teachings comes from her background as a social anthropologist.. A few years ago, Jean published, The Flirt Interpreter, which is an accessible analysis of the research she conducted into the flirting behaviour of people in the cities of London, New York, Paris and Stockholm. She conducted 250 face-to-face interviews to ascertain flirting behaviour.
