The song I’m singing is called “I’m What I Am”. It is a song about self-love, about being strong and finding unity. This song is about how we are perfect as we are and we just have to love each other. One needs a slight push, because sometimes we feel insufficient or not so good, we have to fit into certain norms, perfect stereotypes that society imposes, but you know what – we are unique as we are.

Italy is my second home, I have a lot of fans and admirers there, of course, I represent my country Malta and I am so grateful for the support I have received so far from Malta and all over Europe. I can’t wait to go to Turin, get on stage, meet the other participants and, of course, show you what we’ve been working on because we’ve worked so hard and this is my strongest year in a long time, so an exciting adventure awaits me.
Emma calls Italy a second home, but says she would not live anywhere but Malta. When asked about how she is off the stage, the Maltese hopeful answered:
I am quite a sensitive and loving person. I like to play sports, I like to be around my family, around the dog and my friends. Outside of the artist I am, I am a normal girl who loves normal things.
