"Pinch me, I’m dreaming! This is all so surreal. After 4 years, I am finally here! This year will be a year of growth, laughs, and memories! I can’t wait to share it with all of you!" - Emalee Kitzan
Emalee Ann Kitzan was born in Bismarck, North Dakota, on April 2, 1998. She has an older sister Marlee, who was totally obsessed with her from the second she arrived. Marlee was always making Emalee giggle and holding her little fingers! To this day, her and Marlee are still best friends!
