CEO ACADEMY OF RESILIENCE; AUTHOR, SPEAKER AND TRAINER
I’ve walked some of this story and been constantly amazed at Emily’s achievements and her future vision.
As an honorary family member, I have seen her response to difficulties prove that the only thing capable of turning a piece of coal into a diamond is pressure.
We celebrate this book because it reminds us of how small steps in the right direction can lead to bigger and better things in life. Arise, Emily, and continue to shine so that little girl, sister and daughter can see the possibilities and the reward of pushing on, even when the road is tough!!

I have had the privilege of walking alongside Emily as she shared with you her remarkable life. I have laughed and cried, celebrated and groaned, been challenged and inspired. May you also be impacted by her faith and encouraged to believe as you read Emily’s journey.
Emily Korir is the quintessential woman of faith, hard work, resilience and go-getter. To Emily, failure is not the opposite of success but part of the process for success. She is also a dreamer.
Sometimes her dreams don’t make sense to us until they come to fruition but her friends’ lack of comprehension or support of her dreams has never stopped her from pursuing them.
