I first met Emma a couple of years ago through my work with mental health charities as an ambassador for Rethink Mental Illness and Sane and was immediately struck by her deep understanding of mental illness. As someone, like me, who has experienced mental illness but recovered, Emma is ideally placed to help others. Her writing, including her poetry, is profoundly sensitive and moving and has the ability to make others feel understood. She is also someone who uses social media to make a difference and help anyone afflicted by mental illness. I highly recommend working with Emma.

Emma was a graduate intern and worked for me at LSE on a number of projects related to aspects of students’ digital literacies and use of learning spaces. She was an excellent researcher, but also put together a great workshop for students to understand how they were using some new informal study spaces on the campus. Her interests in mental health and wellbeing, mindfulness and digital wellbeing provided really valuable perspectives on the work we were undertaking. I’d highly recommend her as a colleague and in her new venture as a freelancer.
