9 Years old, Toronto Canada.
I got to hangout with Emma Krysta, and her family, while sharing ice cream and popcorn last week in Toronto, Canada. At 9 years old, Emma is doing amazing things. After speaking with her, I left feeling totally inspired and motivated to keep on keeping on. Here is her story.
Emma Krysta is a 9 year old dancer from Toronto, Canada. Emma trains approx 10 hours every week in Ballet, tap, acro, jazz, technique and hiphop. Emma also gets to dance with the senior level dancers at her studio, and takes part in special performances such as performing live with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
Emma, and her friend Khiy Khiy, attend adult drop in dance classes in downtown Toronto, and they KILL it ! Check out some clips of Emma dancing below ! Emma dances every evening except for thursdays. Her favorite food to keep her energized for this busy life, is fajitas. She also enjoys mint chocolate, and cotton candy ice cream.
I asked Emma to describe herself in 3 words. She chose determined, smart and caring. I totally saw all of these qualities in her from the moment we met.
Emma said her biggest role Model is her mom, “because she is the strongest woman I know. She does everything for me and is always there for me.” Emma’s little sister then said that Emma is her role model and best friend, followed by a huge hug and kiss on the cheek. I can tell Emma and her sister have a very special relationship.
Emma’s Message to girls is “Always be your own best friend. Love yourself, Respect yourself and believe in yourself.” Reminder- this girl is 9 YEARS OLD. What a smart girl.
