I'm Emma and I'll be a freshman in high school this year. In my free time I enjoy reading, watching anime, playing video games, singing with my choir or filming videos.

I'm excited to be apart of the Teen Board this year!

But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two.
