That’s a good question, and an odd one for me to answer since I am Emilee, the object being defined.
The best I can do – since I am still learning about myself each day as I grow and evolve and I also believe that defining something can be limiting – is list off a bunch of facts about myself that will give you at least a sense of “me.”
In short, I am a young creative soul. I love to explore novel concepts; I cannot stand living formulaically. I like to call myself a “dabbler” because I have such a plethora of interests and experience. I am a model, musician, and ballet instructor. I love to write and to make jewelry and to delve into creative projects. I am so grateful for opportunities to support myself and to impact the lives of others through art. I have Type 1 Diabetes and am affected by the lingering shadow of recovery from an eating disorder.
Perhaps we have some similar traits, and perhaps we do not. But ultimately I am just another human being. Though the specific circumstances of my life may be mine alone, their essence is part of the nature of the human experience that we all have in our own way, shape, or form.
As I share my journey – my musings, experiences, and lessons learned along the way – I hope that it will be able to relate to your own life. I hope that you’ll feel less alone if you are going through similar struggles and that my path will be able to inspire you in the steps you are taking on your own journey.
