This new career path has been really fulfilling, because joining the internet when you're so young, I don't think you expect to get anything out of it. I've been on social media since I was, like, 12 or 13. I ran fan accounts for One Direction and things that I love, so I've always been on most platforms in any scale that I could be, but these past few years have probably been the most rewarding. Getting the [Oscars] correspondent job was purely luck, I had no idea that it was something that was going to ever happen for me. I want to do acting, correspondent work, work in comedy or writing, so to finally be in the room where it all happens and meet people that I love, like the Russo brothers or Timothée Chalamet, is really cool.
The first time I stepped foot on a real set was so special. I did a show called Chicken Girls College Years, and it was just crazy to hear, “that’s a wrap for Emily,” at the end of the season. I really hope to continue with the show and expand my horizons. I'm working with coaches and really trying to build a reel and a portfolio for myself, and I’m also hoping to work on some music. So that’s what’s going on for me this year, going into next year, and hopefully forever.
