My name is Emma. I’m the one on the right, the other one is my mom. I am 16 years old and live in Southern California. I have been a disciple of Jesus since August of 2014, and it is because of Him that I am able to be alive today to tell my story. I love robotics, 3D printing, and anything remotely geeky.

I have and still do struggle with depression, anxiety, and symptoms of PTSD. To put it simply, my mind is kind of wacky. Recovery is ongoing and forever will be; however, I am (quite strangely) very thankful for the experiences these illnesses have given me. I have seen the lowest lows and the highest high, and I can truly say that God has continually blessed me with a full life. Shoutout to all the people who have shown me so much love and support through my journey, and a special thank you to those who have taken the time to pray with and for me. Y’all are the best.
