About Me

Hi! I’m Emily. I live in the Netherlands. I’m a human rights worker, interpreter & translator, and a researcher in feminism, South Korea, and technology. I have a BA degree in Political Science & International Relations from Korea University, and an MA in Science & Technology Studies.

In another life I would have been: born in Germany, raised in France, or become a Conference Interpreter. Some people who inspire me are: Pina Bausch, Chimamanda Adichie and Ferdinand Hempfling. I enjoy walking alone in the Mauerpark flea market in Berlin, counting horses when taking train rides, and performances by Tanztheater Wuppertal. My favourite poets are Liz Lochhead, rupi kaur and Ijeoma Umebinyo.

People like to guess where I’m from from my accent when I speak English. I’m most accurately described by the following excerpt in Dispora Blues:

“So, here you are – too foreign for home, too foreign for here. Never enough for both”
