Emily Struggles with Obesity
                  y  friend  Emily,  was  the  kindest  most  caring

          person I knew. Emily was one of the top students

          in my class, her intelligence was desired by many.

          She  helped  me  with  my school  work,  so  I  could

          get acceptable grades on my exams. After school
          every  day,  we  bought  snacks  from  the  school’s

          every  minute  of  the  day  and  especially  even

          corridor,  a  girl  passed  and  called  out  at  Emily,
