The world’s first full-figured supermodel, Emme, will be the keynote speaker at the 2009 Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship (WISE) conference April 8 at the Oncenter. The annual event marks its seventh year for motivating aspiring entrepreneurs in Central New York.
The New York City native also received recognition as host of E! Entertainment Television’s “Fashion Emergency,” and has continued educating women on important issues such as body image, surviving cancer, mothering, and adopting a greener lifestyle.
"The entrepreneur is our visionary, the creator in each of us. We're born with that quality and it defines our lives as we respond to what we see, hear, feel & experience. It is developed, nurtured and given space to flourish or is squelched, thwarted, without air or stimulation, and dies."
