DOTC Blog Celebration: Meet Hannah Emerson

Welcome to the Defenders of the Covenant blog celebration!

Today, I'd like to introduce you to Hannah Emerson.

Hannah is seventeen years old, and has lived her entire life in the refuge, an underground shelter, hidden from the invaders who devastated earth before she was born.  I asked her to answer a few questions:

Most prized possession? My locket. It has a picture of my parents in it and one of my older brother, Caleb. I've never met them, but they gave their lives for me. It's the only thing I have from them.

Best friend? My roommate, McKenzie Larson. We've been best friends practically since birth!


Hobbies? Singing, playing piano and organ. Pretty much anything to do with music. My favorite music is anything by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I wish I could have heard them sing in person.

Favorite book? Hmmm. I guess Anne of Green Gables.

Most memorable event? So far, my most memorable event was the day I got baptized when I turned eight. Bishop Carrier baptized me. It was nice. That's the day that Sister Thayer--she's kind of my foster mom--gave me the locket from my mother.

Thanks, Hannah!

The Hannah Prize Package:

A locket and a Mormon Tabernacle Choir CD (approx. value $22)
