EMA S. HALE
Ema is currently attending Lone Star College with plans to transfer to University of Houston Downtown majoring in social work. In 2008, her younger brother was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and she began volunteering at the JOY Ministry at Graceview Baptist Church: a ministry for special needs children and adults. She has also volunteered with the non-profit Desperate for Respite and developed a love and appreciation for the special needs community. In her free time, she enjoys taking her dog, Ruby, on walks, attending and volunteering at Community of Faith, and finding new ways to be creative.
