Emily Durham | Staff Writer
Emily is a former acting major and current Business student at York University in Toronto and is in her second year. When she isn’t crying about her GPA over a bottle of sale-rack wine, she is probably feeling unsure about wearing (yet another) bold lipstick.
Emily prides herself on being an esteemed chicken finger connoisseur, and one day hopes to invent her own ice cream flavour. In the future, Emily has no idea what she is going to do with her life and hopes to marry rich and elderly.
Emily actually prefers to be called Em, and has always had a passion for writing that is both informative and comedic. She is a firm believer in self-love, and thinks that the best way to accept yourself is to enjoy laughing at your flaws. She lives by the mantra that a day without laughter is a day wasted.
