Emma took part in cheering competitively for 5 years and was so good at it that she was named a member of California All-Star Pink Cheer team.
While she was in school, she had actively embraced the power and use of the internet and was very active online, she said in an interview in 2018 that she saw the internet, especially making YouTube videos as an avenue to connect to the rest of the world and feel the pulse.
