Emma is the Famine


Meet Emma. She’s a passionate little fire-cracker aching to end hunger.

Emma charmed the 30 Hour Famine Team during her interview for the 2011 Study Tour with her passionate monologues. But it’s not just her acting that caught our attention. As a first year Famine student, she didn’t let that slow her down one bit. See what words of wisdom this awesome girl has to share.

My favorite part of the Famine was… Fundraising. I felt like I was making a big difference in a child’s life.

During the 30 Hour Famine, I felt… exhausted.

The most difficult hour of the Famine was… Right before we were allowed to go to bed. So around 1am.

I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world when… When I read “Do Hard Things” by Alex and Brett Harris. Fantastic, inspiring read.

I broke the fast for 30 Hour Famine by… Drinking Instant Breakfast.

I was changed by the Famine because… it gave me a new understanding of hunger and the desire to reach out.

To make an impact in the world, I am… choosing to be passionate about everything I do so that people will see my fire and want to make a change in the world as well.

My advice to someone thinking about doing the Famine is… Go for it! Remember that you are fasting to remind you to pray for the hungry when you feel hungry.
