Emimant dreams of becoming a professional dancer one day.
Emimant was born in 2000 and is 16 years old. She currently lives in Nyakabanda with her mother. She is one of 6 children, several of which are also MindLeaps students including Ezila, Elia, and Clementine. Emimant reached the 4th Grade before needing to drop out of school due to poverty. A different NGO used to pay her school fees but one day they stopped and since then her family could not afford to continue to pay the fees. In addition to dance with the other girls in the Group F MindLeaps class, she also dances with Group A, the performing group, and is found practicing duet choreography many mornings before classes begin.
Emimant was sponsored in 2017 by Catherine Smith and has graduated from Vocational Training School.
