“I’m also learning about myself so that I am able to take care of myself, speak gently to my body and self,” Ushkowitz continued. “Because without a doubt, how I see myself reflects how she will come to appreciate herself and find her self-worth.” Happy birthday to you, Emma, my lovely Emma. We love you more than anything,” Jenna Ushkowitz said as she ended her heartfelt remembrance.
