This Is Who I Am - There are so many amazing quotes on this show with important meaning to the characters who say them. This one, from Emma in episode 1x04 is one of those quotes that resonated with me and I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to do justice to it. I decided on the lost girl Emma with her Neverland badass shadow, hope you like it.
