Why Emma wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I would like to be a voice for children fighting cancer because I want to be able to help those in need. My sister was sick not too long ago, and my family and I were very worried. I want to help families that are going through worse, and I want to help them get through tough times. I also have a friend at my studio who recently lost someone to cancer, and it has been a hard time for not only their family but our whole studio. Last season we wore purple ribbons on our jackets at competitions in honor of her.
