The Uncompromising Emerson Sloane: During
"Duluth is my city. I became an adult here. Twice."
Duluth's Emerson Sloane started making compromises when she was five years old.
But when she hit her 40s, the answer to the question she'd been asking herself for decades, "Are you willing to live like this from here on out?", came back "No."
This morning, she takes us through the transition process, from arriving at her decision, through finding doctors, medical setbacks, transitioning during a pandemic, and why she never considered leaving Duluth to make this change in the anonymity of a bigger town.
Tomorrow on part 3 of "The Uncompromising Emerson Sloane," she takes us through her first year. The challenges ... the fear ... and the courage she's discovered it takes to live with joy.
