Emily Grim

Roommate Extraordinaire


Emily Grim is one witty and charming girl, and I would know having had the pleasure of living with her for two years. In many ways, Emily is a typical DC-gal — she spent her earlier years as a government paralegal, experimented in the online dating world, and is now a successful lawyer who is planning a wedding and enjoying her new status as a proud homeowner. But Emily’s story is unique given her battle with cancer that she faced and overcame in her early 20s.  In this episode, Emily opens up about her experience and how her past illness has shaped her today. With this podcast recording, we celebrate her being cancer-free for ten years. Emily leaves us with the importance lesson to tell others how much they are valued, appreciated, and loved.

This episode is dedicated to JoJo Fletcher who Emily admires because of her vulnerability and honesty.
