Emily takes a look back and reflects upon the life experiences (the good, the bad and the ugly) that have shaped her outlook on everything from health, relationships, beauty standards, work, and everything in between. Emily is a plus-size influencer based in Malta. After losing her city job in London due to ill health, & dealing with a family crisis in Malta after her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Emily decided to put her energy into starting an Instagram page, with this becoming her full-time gig.
As a chronic-pain sufferer Emily’s focus has been to bring awareness to invisible disability, diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis & fibromyalgia in her mid-twenties. Emily is passionate about promoting diversity, particularly in the body positive space, demonstrating that every BODY is worthy of respect & self-love at every stage of one's health journey.
