Hidden Passions - Emerson Nogueira, Class of 2023

Like many Landmark students, Emerson Nogueira has been extremely busy getting back in the groove at school, but when he isn’t in the classroom, he is slaying tires at the race track. He has an incredible passion for drifting that started at a young age watching professional drivers on the internet and dreaming of a future where he would be able to do the same. About two years ago, Emerson went to his first event as a spectator to experience the scene and find information about how he could join. It was that same day that he met a driver with a spare helmet who would change his life forever with a simple question: “Do you want to ride?” Emerson was completely hooked and could not wait to get back on the track - but next time in the driver’s seat. 
Fast forward to the present. In his first season of competition, he placed second in the championship for his local drift series competition. Emerson now competes against some of the best drifters in the country, wins events, and enjoys spending fun times with friends at the track, at only the age of 16! 
Recently, Emerson invited Mr. Baffour Osei, Landmark Christian engineering faculty and football coach, to watch him compete and after the race, they opened the track and Emerson took him for a couple of laps. Mr. Osei shared, “The experience was mind-blowing.”
 
It’s amazing the things our students do in the classroom and beyond. Just think you never know who is sitting next to you in math, science, or Bible class. Take note, look around, and get to know all your classmates.
