I love to swim, camp, and spend time with family and friends. I like to watch Marvel movies and my favorite shows. I am the shortest in my family and the youngest. One of my favorite places to be is on the beach somewhere warm. I have had to have all kinds of braces when I was younger. When I was really little, I use to have a brace that was made of plaster that wouldn't come off till I got it cut off. Then they moved me to a brace that I only had to wear at night, but the nice thing is that I don't have to wear them anymore. I have also had to have a foam lift on the bottom of my shoe to help level me out because my left leg is shorter than my right. Then in the next year or two I will have a leg lengthening surgery.

 

I want to help girls that are going through the same things that I am going through. I want to be able to help them feel beautiful when they don't think that they are because their curves stick out and don't think the outfit looks good or helping them by just knowing that the pain they feel every day that comes from having scoliosis.

Emily Senior Curvy Leader 2011

My name is Emily. I started with Curvy Girls after watching the TeenNick HALO AWARDS. I was so surprised to see a girl (as I didn’t know Leah’s name at first) that had scoliosis. I saw she had started a support group in her state for girls just like her. Before that I thought I was one of only a few people that had scoliosis.

 

I was diagnosed with scoliosis at age 7. For treatment, I was braced for 5 years and then a few years later had spinal fusion as my curve continued to grow despite being physically done growing.

 

Previously, I was the leader for the Oklahoma Chapter and with my recent move to Wyoming, I look forward to continuing to pass on the support and community connections that is Curvy Girls!

 

Stay Strong Always,

Emily
