Emma Rosen


Emma Rosen spent a year working in 25 different jobs before her 25th birthday – from archaeology in Transylvania, tour guiding amid violent protests in Venezuela and investigative journalism with a national newspaper, to an extra in a star-studded movie, alpaca farming in Cornwall and assisting the British Council’s crisis team during the terror attack on Parliament in March 2017.

The 25before25 project aims to promote portfolio careers, highlight the importance of work experience for all ages and advocate for more diverse careers education for young people.

Since completing 25before25 in August 2017, Emma has launched her own portfolio career, the highlight of which is writing her debut book.

Prior to the project, Emma worked as a Civil Servant for the UK Government and completed an MA in Applied Security Strategy. She enjoys adventurous travel and mountaineering in her spare time.

I met 84-year-old Tseoing Dolma in the 250,000 person Tibetan #refugees camp in Leh, India, which has been her home since 1959. This is her story. https://t.co/w6VMh9W14E

I interviewed @Bex_Band & @_jobradshaw about the growing trend of women's only expedition groups and what it's like to be female in the adventure industry, when we met on Stok Kangri with @360Expeditions. What do you think? https://t.co/NnmcSJ5Zzv
