    Re: She emerged from the divorce a stronger person.

    "emerge" is a verb that means "to appear up out of"

    So, after the divorce, she appeared up out of the entire (hurtful, messy, sad) situation as a stronger person.

    That is shortened to "emerged a stronger person."

    The ship emerged still seaworthy.
