Q. Who are the members of your family?

A. My family is fairly small and it includes my mother Reacky, my father Charssen and myself. I have no siblings or pets.

Q. What do you most enjoy about being a senior?

A. If I were to use one word to summarize every senior benefit at Emmaus, that word would be “flexibility.” As with many other seniors, this year has been noticeably more flexible than previous years, especially with the opportunity to drive to and from school.
