Writer, traveler, wine and coffee snob.
My name is Emily, and I’m a writer with a strong passion for travel, exploring cultures and cooking. I’m originally based in Canada, where I’ve been living for the better part of the last year. I graduated with a Bachelors of Journalism and Political Science from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, where I wrote a wide variety of articles and essays over the course of four years. Part of my family is from Argentina, and the other part is from the United Kingdom, in which both have shaped my identity and personality throughout the years. I’ve lived in several places abroad, writing, meeting new people, and figuring out who I am and where I should be in this world.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I am not meant to be in one place; there are too many places for me to see, too many friends spread out throughout the world, and not enough time. Maybe that’ll change in 10 years, but for now, I plan on traveling and working as much as I can.
I’ve always loved to write, ever since I was six years old. My first official essay was a persuasive one to my family, at the age of eight, where I wrote 3 pages on why we should vacation to Florida that year. Spoiler alert: it worked. My writing includes a variety of topics, including environmental politics, film, lifestyle, mental health, and travel. I’ve mixed my journalism with photography, where I enjoy street photography and just taking snapshots of things I think are pretty.
Currently, I’m working on a series of personal essays that reflect my trip to Argentina, and the catharsis of it all. I’m a writer at artil Magazine, a women-run lifestyle online publication based in Berlin, where I focus on travel, beauty, and entertainment.
When I’m not working or traveling, I enjoy summer, the smell of a hot city at night, and a nice French Rosé.
