#27. December 19th, 2012: Emily Laliotis

There isn’t a correct way to describe or thank Emily for all that she is, so I will do my best. One thing that I truly believe is that she is incredibly mature for her age, but she lives EVERY single day with such a youthful spirit. She honestly dances through her days with the most beautiful smile on her face and it makes everyone around her so happy. Emily is honestly one of the most amazing people that I know. When I think about CCA and about students who are rocking this world, I think of a lot of people πŸ™‚ , but Emily is basically one of the first people to come to mind. She is UNBELIEVABLY talented, whether it’s with her music, her singing, her acting, or even her work on TEDxYouth@SanDiego, and she puts incredible amounts of effort into all that she does. When we worked together on TEDxYouth, she was someone we could all count on to make us smile and to remind us of amazing outcome that we would have. Emily, YOU are the professional at making people happy πŸ™‚ and at making others feel welcomed and at making them feel beautiful and just AH!! You truly are such a rare and special person and I am just crazily honored to know you. As I mentioned to you tonight, I feel like role models are often described as being older than someone but you are such a role model and inspiration in my life as well as many others. You live your life to the absolute fullest and you are yourself every day. You pursue the things you are passionate about, and you do what’s right even when it’s the hardest thing to do, or not the most popular thing to do. You have a spectacular voice OMG and I cannot wait to be a fangurl of you when you’re playing on massive stages. And when you do get there, I KNOW for a fact that you will always be humble and that you will always be so kind to everyone and that you will continue to be the modest, gorgeous, phenomenal young woman that you are. Anyway, I just want to thank you for being superb. You’re exquisite. You are someone I will always be friends with and I cannot thank you enough for always being there for me. Thank you for always listening and offering support. Thank you for following your dreams and for inspiring others to do the same. Thank you for being born πŸ™‚ You’re such a gift to this Earth and I am so lucky to know you and I cannot wait to see you in 4 days πŸ˜€ For all of that, Emily, I thank you πŸ™‚
