A Little Bit Different

Emmet Temple has lived on Ocracoke all of his life. He is now a high school senior in Winston-Salem at the North Carolina School of the Arts studying acting. I recently learned that Emmet has a starring role in a short video on YouTube. I thought our readers would enjoy seeing this video featuring one of Ocracoke Island's promising young adults.
