Emily Demers is from Atlanta, Georgia, lives in Franklin, Tennessee, and left her heart in China many years ago. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she spent the better part of her post-college career working for a church by coordinating and managing large groups and events. After traveling to China several times, Emily fell in love with the people, culture, and the dumplings! But most importantly, the children who are living as orphans stole her heart. She’s always had a passion for caring for kids, but Emily’s personal mission has become this: To fight for the plight of orphans. Today that looks like serving with Show Hope on the Student Initiatives staff.
