“I’m just sort of trying to find something that I like doing… I haven’t found it yet.”

Meet Emaan.

What advice would you give to your younger self? “I feel like I don’t even know yet. I guess that it’s ok not to have everything planned out.”

So, when you were younger, you wanted everything in a certain way? “Yeah… tried to plan everything out and scheduled everything.”

Did something change that? “No, just the plans not working out… life happening… realizing that I can be open to other possibilities.”

What is your biggest challenge right now… getting through this interview? “{laughs} I don’t know… being more comfortable. Also realizing that if everything does make me uncomfortable then that’s ok… I have to do it anyways.”

What are your goals? Where do you want to be in ten years? “Independent. Career-wise… doing something that I enjoy that I can make a living off of. I’m just sort of trying to find something that I like doing… I haven’t found it yet.”

If you could put a billboard up in Charlotte, what would it say? “I really would want it to say nothing… maybe a nice picture or something. I feel like I get too distracted trying to read stuff.”

What picture would it be? “A picture of what was directly behind the billboard.”

What is the biggest misconception people have about you? “Maybe that I’m not friendly… that maybe I’m too standoffish.”

Technical Notes: I used a small LED panel to add light to Emaan’s face.
