What does it mean to accept your own fierce beauty? What does it look like to face cancer with faith in your journey? Emma Houston was appointed in 2016 as Diversity and Inclusion Director by mayor Ben McAdams for the Salt Lake County’s Office of Diversity Affairs. She is the former chairwoman of the Governor’s Office of Ethnic Affairs and former secretary for the YWCA Board and UAA Board. She is a cancer survivor and serves on the Huntsman Cancer Foundation Community Advisory Committee. She is also the chair for the Martin Luther King Commission. She’s here today because she is also a cheerleader–a cheerleader reminding us of our own fierce beauty, power, and control over our growth and attitudes, no matter what life throws our way. Tune in for some cheering!
