Emily Kim's journey as a young artist is defined by perseverance, a devotion that has seen her through multiple life-altering struggles. Born and raised in Maryland, Emily was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of three. Despite several years of treatments, her cancer returned when she was seven. Without a donor for bone marrow transplants, Emily underwent a life-saving procedure involving a cord blood stem cell transplant. While the operation was successful, Emily suffered numerous complications resulting in permanent and progressive neurological damage. But despite these setbacks and limitations, Emily continues to build from strength to strength.
