“There have been so many times in my career where I have thought about changing career paths or giving up,” Emily told Harper’s Bazaar in January 2022. “I stopped totally modelling when I went to college and I thought I was going to become an artist, and then I left and started modelling full time and then I sort of dabbled in acting … I feel like I am constantly evolving.”

She added, “I think the biggest obstacle of my career has been transitioning and doing things that people didn’t really expect. But I think you just have to forge ahead and do what you’re going to do and be who you are.”
