The first time we met Emma Jayne at our annual Wandawega Kids Camp nearly 5 years ago— And now she’s writing and performing songs for Coke and on WBEZ, and well…  all grown up. We adore her and could not be prouder of her as she’s off to college. She wrote, performed and recorded this song just for us.
