A body positive advocate, Emma was the first plus size woman to place in a major national American pageant. The diva started her beauty pageant journey at the age of 16-years and soon realised that the title and platform can be used to implement changes in the society. She says, “Being a curvy titleholder has shown me that the pageant industry is changing and though not all organizations are as progressive, there are many are starting to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes. Being a positive role model and a great titleholder is not indicative of fitting a certain mould of external appearance.”
