Emily Fuentes was born on December 24, 1999 in Tucson, Arizona.  She is the daughter of Elizabeth Solano and Jose Luis Quesada and has three sisters and three brothers that she loves very much. She has lived in Canada and in Mexico.  

When Emily was 6 years old she lived in Mexico in a town named San Felipe de Jesus where she attended elementary school for two years. This is where her best childhood memories were created along with her siblings. Thereafter, when she turned 8 years old, her family moved to the United States for a short period of time before moving to Whitehorse a city in Canada where she also attended elementary school.  However, due to personal challenges her family had to once again move to Mexico for a period of time. 

Emily’s family returned to the United States in time for her to begin high school at the Raul Hector Castro Learning Center also known as PEP Tec High School where she is currently a Senior and is expected to graduate in 2018.  After graduation, Emily plans to attend a community college before transferring to the University of Arizona where she hopes to accomplish her goals and to follow her dreams. She is confident that she will be successful as she has the right people to support her.
