Emem was an experimental character, now she’s a symbol that shows there’s power in daring.

Experimentation became me. I tried to figure out what my style was. All bodies can do this. My body is good. Any body is good. All bodies have power. I learned really quickly that before the world began to change their view of bigger bodies, it was unacceptable for bigger bodies to dance or do yoga or do anything that has been reserved for the slim. That idea has always made me feel… awkward.
