Author: Emilia Rak

Emilia Zsuzsanna Rak is a writer and communications specialist based in Little Rock, Arkansas. She has been writing articles on the pursuit of health, wellness, fitness, modeling and an array of issues regarding parenting, family, relationships, domestic violence, abuse and the pursuit of self-esteem both online and in print for nearly ten years. She is returning to school with the goal of becoming an art therapist. She is also working on her memoir, "A Tough Nut to Crack." When asked for a few lines for her bio she wrote: "It's my sincere hope that I will leave this earth a better place than when I came into it. To sum up my feelings I'd like to quote my daughter, Nini. She said to me, ‘Mami, all of our pain and suffering and bad stuff that happened to us wasn't for nothing because some day we're going to help people.’" It turns out that Nini was right, because Emilia is now an honors student at the UALR School of Social Work pursuing her BSW, realizing the dreams that she and her girls could only hope they would ever see.
