Meet the team: Emma

Get to know Emma, one of our Project Workers, a little better! You may see her at Galaxy (our LGBT Youth Group) or at your school or college, delivering Sex and Relationships Education!

What’s your favourite thing about working for Galaxy?

I like seeing everyone’s individual styles and talking to people about stuff they’re into. I always pick up new bands or TV shows.

What makes you happy?

My cat, Johnny!

What’s your favourite food?

For Treats: Greek Food. For everyday life: yoghurt. I eat so much yoghurt every day, it’s a bit scary now.

Do you have any weird phobias?

Being scared of spiders isn’t weird, is it? The weird ones would be (very specifically) digital clocks in dark rooms and choking to death/having a major allergic reaction.

What makes you angry?

Injustice, and people being nasty. Also, my husband leaving cereal crumbs everywhere.

When you were younger, what did you want to be?

A vet or a rock star. Unfortunately, I hate surgery and gave up learning to play an instrument.

What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve done?

SO MUCH. I fall over in public once a week. The one that sticks with me Is falling over in front of my entire primary school during assembly. Also, when I worked in a high school, I fell down a flight of stairs and landed on my knees by the front door. Then I just got up and walked out.

If you were an animal, what animal do you think you’d be?

A cat. My cat’s life looks mint.

If you could live in a book, TV show or movie, what would it be and why?

I would be in the Godfather (my fav). They get to eat home cooked Italian food, live in New York, run off to Sicily and wear expensive clothes. I wouldn’t want to get involved in the mob stuff too much though, obvs.

What would you do if you were Prime Minister for a day?

Give everyone a week off work.

If you could take a selfie with one person dead or alive who would it be?

Marilyn Monroe.
