Emma Frame, a Milan High School senior, was born December 8, 2000 in Ann Arbor.
Since her parents had moved to Milan before she was born, Emma has always lived in Milan.
Emma’s mom and dad were swimmers, but it was really her aunt, Julie Harvey, who insisted that they put her in lessons. Her aunt was her first real coach until she was about 10 or 11 when her mom started coaching. 
Swimming is her first love. She started swimming at Milan Swim club when she was 5 and stuck with it. She also played Softball for many years, youth league all the way to 2 years of JV in high school. During her junior year, Emma decided she wanted to concentrate on Swimming. She said, “I’ve had my ups and downs, but in high school Coach, Dan Heikka really helped me understand why swimming was important to me. He helped me figure out my place on the team. He was always very understanding and patient with me and helped me be a better swimmer and person in the long run.”
Emma said, “my team was, and still is, my biggest support system. Most of those girls have been with me all throughout high school, some I’ve known since elementary school and some I’ve only known a few years, but all have impacted my life and shaped me to be the person I am today.” 
Swimming was Emma’s only extracurricular activity for most of her high school career, but she’s always been interested in art and has been doing it on her own, in her spare time. 
After graduation Emma will continue to swim in college at Bethel University in Indiana, and she will be studying Art Education, to become an Elementary Art Teacher.
