About Me

I’m Emily, your friendly neighbourhood eccentric feminist witch. That was a mouthful.

Anyway, I enjoy music, art, museums, books, theatre, plants… I find joy in creative hobbies!

Some Fun Facts…

My birthday is on Halloween. I’m a Scorpio Sun, Aquarius Moon, and Capricorn Rising if you’re into astrology!

I have aphantasia, which means I don’t have a visual imagination! Read all about it here.

My Blog

I started writing my first blog when I was around the age of 13-14 (it was quite melodramatic as you can expect). I started Emily Underworld when I began university in 2014. I study Classics, which includes a lot of Greek Mythology… my favourite stories are all about Hades and the Underworld, hence the name!

Some of my Favourite & Most Popular Blog Posts…

Other things I do with my life

  • I recently finished my MA in Classics and Archaeology at King’s College & UCL, after a BA (Hons) in Ancient History. I’d love to be an academic writer one day, or a museum curator.
  • I’m really into music: I play the guitar, a bit of piano, and I’m a soprano singer. I love musicals, particularly The Phantom of the Opera and Hamilton. My favourite musicians include Elvis Presley, Fleetwood Mac, Nirvana, and Mozart to name a few. I’ve been lucky enough to perform in professional settings, including concerts, at weddings, and on BBC Radio. I’ve recently started singing on TikTok for a bit of fun!
  • In 2012, I won a mural competition for the 20th Century Fox & Tim Burton film ‘Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter’, which was displayed in Shoreditch, pictured below. I’ve also won a few photography competitions at King’s College, and once I even posed nude as Aphrodite!
