“Jump Off A Cliff” featuring Emma Vrabel

Theme: “Jump Off A Cliff
Storyteller: Emma Vrabel

When 14-year-old Emma Vrabel took the stage, most in the audience likely knew little about albinism. But with courage, verve, and plenty of humor, Emma gave us all a lesson in humanity, her condition, and self-advocacy.

Performed in “Jump Off A Cliff” on November 3 in Hamon Hall at the Winspear Opera House, Dallas, TX.

What a fantastic speech, delivered beautifully. Having albinism myself, I can relate to a lot of what Emma says. I applaud her for having the courage to stand up there and say it. This will hopefully help people better understand and we may eventually lose that steteotypical image portrayed so often. When I was young, I also believed albinos had pink eyes – and nobody back then enlightened me any differently. My albinism just wasn’t mentioned. It was a bit of a hush hush subject. People like Emma can now change that. Well done.
