What I like best about Emmanuel is that he downplays his story. Born in War Torn Iran. His physical differences a result of chemical warfare... raised in an orphanage- and if you ask him about his struggle; he shrugs and says "Others have been through a lot worse. I'm lucky."
Why I support him? Because he's the Underdog. Because he has more courage than many of us... even me--- to shamelessly, boldly, heroically chase his dreams. I want him to achieve them! I want him to sing in front of millions of people, to found schools for under privileged kids like he says he will. Because when he does, as he does.... that small flicker and flame of HOPE I keep fanning within myself towards my own dreams burns brighter.
