"I was born in Russia, raised in Washington D.C. and I've been living in Houston for the past 9 years.
I most optimistic about my stubbornness. I have long term goals on doing humanitarian work and I'm really expecting that in my lifetime I'll be able to accomplish something and change things. Seeing people getting hurt and mistreated is what motivated me to set these goals. I was seeing racism since I was little. I couldn't just sit back and watch anymore."- Emma Shahriari
