Meet Emma! Our photography loving Laner of the Week!! Born and raised in NYC, she is a proud half Chinese, Ukrainian, and Italian woman. She loves chasing sunsets, moonrises, and even the occasional lunar eclipse! She is passionate about photography and loves to capture the moment. She is an aspiring freelance photographer so off the Lane, you can find her with a camera in hand. She enjoys embracing and immersing herself in her community and building others up through art. We love having her creative eye on our team!
What do you like about Mustard Lane or just working events in general?
My journey with Mustard Lane is just beginning, but I am excited for it. I love being able to have new experiences, every gig is a new adventure- no day is the same. I love meeting new people and seeing the little difference you can make in one’s day by your interaction with them.
When you’re not on the Lane…what are you doing?!
I am taking time for self-care, chasing sunsets, exploring new foods, honing my photography skills and editing photos.
Favorite restaurant or food?
I love asian cuisine. This is especially because I’m lactose intolerant and I find asian food to have the most lactose-free friendly options. For example, check out Lazy Sundaes! They have the most delicious lactose-free Bingsoo Sundaes.
What is one of your goals for 2022?
Given that 2022 is winding down, my goal is to finish this year strong.
Name a place you’d love to travel to. And why?!
Iceland or Norway, it is my dream to see the northern lights. To experience the wonder in person and even capture it, that would be amazing !
What’s your favorite way to spend a day off?
My favorite way to spend a day off is by taking time for self care, enjoying a beautiful sunset, street photography and catching up with friends.
Do you prefer podcasts or books? Favorite one?
I prefer books, but I do wish I made time to explore podcasts.
What’s your hidden talent?!
If you could have your dream job tomorrow, what would it be?
It would be a mix of what I am already doing, I really love being in the Brand Ambassador world, I haven’t found any other career like it, it’s so cool to get to work and have new experiences all the time. I’d just love to grow in this industry, having fun while working and exploring new opportunities.
