We have known Emma for a long time. Emma is the younger sister of my best friend, Rylee. The three of us grew up like sisters. We played like sisters, fought like sisters, and now we love like sisters. Emma has a real heart for serving people and the Lord. She always has. That’s why we weren’t surprised when Emma talked about joining ROTC and then pursuing a career in the medical field. She didn’t want to be a doctor – someone known around the world who holds a fancy title, but a person who helps others during the worst times of their life. Someone essential but often overlooked. A thankless job. She wants to be a nurse. Someone who works directly with people to help them feel better.
We know that Emma will be successful in all her endeavors. Emma, we hope you pursue your dream and make the most of every opportunity that comes your way because you deserve it. We do not doubt that you will become what and who you want to be. We hope our time together this summer helped you see what we see when we look at you – a brilliant, talented, and gorgeous woman on the inside and out. We love you, Emma!
