I’ve spoken to audiences at these organizations and events:

Three years ago, Emily spoke at UNC and really inspired me to think big! She made me realize that we shouldn't limit opportunities to a certain location and that led me to where I am today, currently interning in Barcelona. Thank you!

Sketchnoting takes practice. It was humbling, but I didn't want to stop! The 3 hour workshop went by so fast, I wanted part 2! Really enjoyed the workshop and meeting Emily.

What People Are Saying:

She’s amazing, she tells you how it is and what the real world is like. It’s very helpful compared to the sugar coating you get every where else.

Emily’s teaching style is so approachable and fun! Even if you’re like me and afraid your artistic skills are lacking, she’ll help you feel confident. You won’t regret taking her class!


Workshop Attendee, Nashville, TN

Am I confused about where my life is going? Yes. Will we be okay? Absolutely. Emily Mills made me realize we don’t have life figured out, and that’s okay.
