Originating from the exotic land of Finland, Emilia is working towards her Master of Arts in English. As an enthusiastic literary analyst, she is most inspired by socio-political satire. As a writer, she seeks to apply her skills in taking literature apart in order to create. If literature illuminates reality, consider Emilia a teacher as well as a student; if literature is a means for escaping reality, her mission is to take as many people with her as possible.
