About Emily Birks
She thrives from creating long lasting relationships with parents and Role Models
Emily loves the outdoors and specifically enjoys being by the sea. She is an avid scuba diver and feels most at home when swimming under the waves and exploring the coral reefs. Prior to Role Models Emily worked within the Production and Advertising Industry and therefore enjoys being creative and thinking outside the box. Emily spent two weeks in Treviso, Italy, teaching Italian children English through the Dramatic Arts. From this Emily’s interest in Children’s development and growth began and she believes every child is unique and should be given as many opportunities as possible to become the best person they can be.
Emily’s Role Model is Malala Yousafzai who was shot at the age of 15 by the Taliban due to her response in fighting for the rights of girls to gain education after the Taliban had banned girls from attending school. In 2014 she became the youngest person to be awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize. Malala continues to speak up about inequality for women, children and education.
