Emma Portillo

We're celebrating our own Emma Portillo, who passed her U.S. citizenship test in late May.

"I studied every single day," Emma said. She listened to the facts on her phone and was quizzed by her daughter. She said, "I’m excited because I'm American now!"

Emma first arrived in the U.S., from El Salvador, on April 26, 1990. She has been associated with Color Wheel since 2005. Her naturalization ceremony will take place this summer.

The Color Wheel family understands how special citizenship is for Emma. Elisabeth Boswell, a second-generation owner, was also a naturalized citizen. Congratulations, Emma!
