Emma has an MBA and has worked in finance in both Pakistan and Dubai. She has lived in many parts of Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, but for the past three years, Manila has been her home. Travelling and living in different parts of the world has given Emma a rich perspective into different societies' cohesiveness and forms of humanity. She believes Popinjay is truly trying to make a difference to the lives of Hafizabad's artisans by empowering them and calls it "one of the most noble of visions."
Living in Manila has been a dream for Emma who loves to run and hopes to participate in a marathon in 2017. She also loves reading, playing mahjong, and taking every opportunity to visit galleries and art fairs that the city has to offer.
