Ashley Picks for Emma
This is so exciting! I love that I get to pick a song for my cousin! I have to be honest, I tried to pick a song that was more in line with the music Emma likes—something really obscure, by some band that only she and Brendan know about, that played in, like, a broom closet in Brooklyn and sold five albums or something—but she told me to stay true to myself and pick a song that I liked.
So, my song for Emma is Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful.” I was listening to Christina’s greatest hits album the very first day I walked from my house to pick up Emma for her first day of school. And I noticed that Emma looked a little scared, and a little nervous, but she deliberately put on a brave front because she didn’t want to worry me. After I left her at her locker to go to her first class, this song just kept running through my head. It got stuck in my head all day. At first I thought it was stuck in my head because it’s really catchy—I was even caught humming it in class. Thankfully no one recognized what song it was or else that could have been embarrassing! But then I realized I had the song replaying in my head because it reminded me of Emma. She manages her keep her head held high no matter what is going on in her life. She’s inspired me to be stronger and have more faith in myself. And if she reads this, she’s so going to hold it over my head, isn’t she?
