Every girl is dreamed of becoming a model, some day...I was waiting, waiting, wait, oops...That day never came!;( I remember one of my best friends' mom used to tell me, if you choose the right lucky number, your dream will come true. My lucky number is 7. Well, I guess it probably should be 777....in Vegas;))

Emme is a TV host, author, world's leading full figured supermodel, columnist, a lovely mom, and the titles go on and on...
I like to meet with business women as there are always stories behind every business. What really amazed me is her courage of sharing her own life stories with everyone and the willingness to encourage and help others. Positivity is always contagious...
Emme shared her own life story on her website: Emmenation.com
Life can really throw unexpected curveballs. Undoubtedly, the recent curveballs in my life have forced me to evolve to the point that I am now living a very different life than I once did. In May 2007, the news of my lymphatic cancer shook my world. I was of course faced with my own mortality, and concern for my family but I also faced the financial reality of my situation when my chemo schedule sidelined a TV hosting position that I had just accepted. Then the realization that my 18-year marriage was ending forced me to face the heartbreak and turmoil only a divorce can bring. With my then seven-year-old daughter as my priority, I resolved to face the challenges head on. "When the student is ready, the teacher comes." (Buddha)
I boldly faced my fears of failure and success to step out of what had been my comfort zone for so many years. Today, I am cancer free, strong and proud of the new business I have built based on my personal life experiences during my ever-evolving inner revolution. EmmeNation, is dedicated to sharing what I have learned and continue to learn along the way and to building a forum for women to seek and share as well. EmmeNation offers women, who want to feel whole, the opportunity to be whole.
When Emme opened the door for me, she gave me the Zen style hand-shake;)) Her office is spacious and modern, which you can never guess from its entrance. It's located in SOHO area, a perfect location for fashion business. Emme is very beautiful, with a sunny and bubbly personality, great smile....Of course we talked about tea!! There are few boxes of tea in Emme's office. Guess which tea she likes: Ginger tea-helps improve immune system!
Emme started a new clothing line early this year (Congrats Emme!!). I know many people who are plus sizes have hard time to find the clothes that really fit. Emme's style and design would be a perfect choice, simply because she loves what she does. And she will do the best!

put women’s and children’s issues front and center. She was the first model to speak to these issues
before a congressional sub-committee in Washington, DC and continues to speak out about body
image issues and funding the arts in schools. She previously hosted Fashion Emergency on E! where
she gave fashion advice to women of all ages. Her "Simply Green with Emme" iVillage blog came
about from her brush with lymphatic cancer in 2007, pondering all things for the quest of green living
for herself and her family. Her column "Ask Emme" appeared monthly in Mode magazine in the 1990s.
