EMILY CORAL From ENGLAND
Hello, I’m Emily Hill.
I was born and grew up in the historic County of Middlesex. I have very fond memories of my childhood, growing up in a loving family environment with my brother and sister and wonderful parents I respected and adored.
I was very fortunate to have attended an outstanding State school where I received an excellent education and finished my high school and sixth form with 3 A-Levels in Mathematics, Textiles-Art and Photography. I also achieved an AS in Physical Education.
I then went on to London College of Fashion and achieved a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design as well as an ABC in Photoshop and Life-Drawing. I am now in my 3rd year at Middlesex University where I am studying for a BA(Hons) in Fashion Design.
I firmly believe in the philosophy of working hard and following your dreams. My parents instilled a strong work ethic in me from an early age and I had my first day job at fourteen delivering newspapers before working at the local florist. I have always been a keen swimmer and I acquired my NPLQ (National Pool Lifeguard Qualification) at sixteen whilst also qualifying in First Aid at the same time. I was then a lifeguard for the next three years until pursuing a career in Modelling specialising in beauty and lingerie. More recently I have also worked in television with roles in films, series and commercials.
Whilst studying for my Fashion Design Degree, I was given the opportunity to work as an intern at Alexander McQueen HQ for two months. Whilst there I was able to go to Paris Fashion Week with the team and although it was mentally and physically demanding, it was a fantastic challenge and an amazing opportunity from which I learnt a tremendous amount about myself and the fashion industry.
My ambition is to pursue a career in Fashion, have my own successful Fashion Line and in time have retail outlets throughout the world with my own brand recognised as a global household name.
I love to travel where I can explore new places, meet new people and experience new cultures. My other hobbies include swimming, surfing, and skiing. I am a keen scuba-diver and with my open-water PADI qualification, I dive whenever I can on my travels.
I’m passionate, fun, friendly, considerate and caring and I have a passion for life. I’m driven, ambitious and determined. I believe in setting impossible dreams and then making those dreams come true through hard work, determination, desire and an ethos of never, ever giving up!!
