Welcome to my creative outlet.

About

I'm Emily, a recent grad from NYU's media and communications program. I originally started my website as a visual portfolio for employers during my hunt for internships. 

While it still serves that purpose today (as I hunt for a job this time around), I've picked up writing and producing short-form videos. At first, I wasn't sure what to write or shoot about, but after speaking with my friends who are still swimming through hundred-dollar textbooks, I figured I'd write about my life post-college and contribute my two-cents on the place of Asian-Americans in this convoluted nation. 

So welcome! This is where I share the world through my eyes.

NICE TO MEET YOU

Hi, my name is Emily and welcome to my website.

I graduated from New York University with a B.S. in Media, Culture, and Communication and a secondary degree in Chinese. I am interested in marketing and am always on the lookout for opportunities that allow me to become a more effective communicator with consumers through digital media. 

This website is a reflection of my creative passions: photography and videography. Here you will find content from my latest travels or projects.

If you're more interested in my professional career, you may find my LinkedIn here.

In the meantime, here are some random questions that I pulled from the Web that will give you an idea of who I am as a person:

Name: Emily Liu

Unprofessional Profession: Bobaholic, somehow finds herself at the butt of every joke

Hobbies: Photography, videography, drinking boba

Languages I Speak: Mandarin Chinese, Japanese

Cameras: Nikon D5300, Panasonic Lumix G7, iPhone X

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

Constance Wu, where I would thank her for many things—for bringing more Asian representation into Hollywood, for speaking up on behalf of disenfranchised communities, and for risking her career and reputation if it means doing what is right as opposed to what is expected.

One of my creative goals is to do a casual photoshoot or short-form video with her. If that ever happens, my 20’s will be made!

Would you like to be famous? In what way?

It doesn’t matter if I become famous, as long as I have the power to create and inspire, even if it’s done behind-the-scenes. I don’t believe I possess the full skillset to become the “main star” of anything. However, I do believe that if I continue to hone what I’m good at, I would make for a good collaborator.

I’ve always been a people-person—I work best discussing and bouncing ideas off of another individual. For me, there’s no fun in being the best if you have no one to share or experience it with. I’d rather not be the best person, I’d rather help someone become the very best.

Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why?

Sometimes–if it’s my first time calling an individual or group, I want to make sure I am leaving the best impression I can through the phone. That means speaking slower, enunciating every syllable with more clarity, and sounding determined. Most of my interactions with my client are through the phone, so I need to make sure I sound confident and strong in order to establish and maintain credibility.

If I’m calling family or friends though, to hell with rehearsal!
