When she learned she had not done well on the Ocer entrance exam, she challenged her grade. There was a clerical error and the school found that she had done well. Achan Emmily, age 16 will attend Ocer.

Emmily has been the headgirl of her primary school. She dreams of becoming a nurse. She has written about Ugandan women who are her role models: Rebecca Kadago and Winny Bianyima. She is one of five children within the family.
