Growing up in Haywood County, N.C., home to Folkmoot USA, North Carolina’s International Folk Festival, Emily M. Burrus was introduced to cultures from around the world. From that early exposure, the 2006 alumna of Gardner-Webb University became connected to the French culture. Through a language program in the school system, she learned French from kindergarten through 11th grade.
