Updated: Dec 25, 2020
1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Emilie Paris Rose Kirchgesner and I’m from Saskatoon, SK currently living in Toronto, ON for the past 2 years. I've traveled back and forth from the States to Canada all of my life, my mom's side of the family is from NY, and my dad's side is from Canada. 2. Name some of your passions. Who are some of your biggest influences?
I am a dancer, singer, actor, and model. I just started 2 businesses (merch and hair/skincare). Broadway has always been a dream of mine and that’s where my influence as an artist has always taken me, but my friends and family inspire me the most! 3. What are some of your biggest accomplishments thus far in your life?
Some of my biggest accomplishments thus far have been traveling to different places for opportunities I never thought I’d be able to do, meeting incredible artists, moving on my own to a new city in my own condo, creating a platform to inspire others. 4. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 5 years I see myself continuing to do what I love and share my gifts with both an audience and with those who wish to follow in my footsteps. 5. Has creating always come naturally to you? Since the age of 3 I’ve always had a love of the arts. I've been able to perform in many musicals throughout my youth. Dance and acting is something that just came naturally to me. 6. What do you use for inspiration when creating? While I’m creating, I use past experiences whether it’s pain, happiness, or life lessons. The people around me help make my creation come to life. 7. Who are some of the creatives you would like to work with? I love watching award shows whether it’s creative direction, the artist, or the complete picture I’ve always wanted to be involved in a theatrical performance of any kind. 8. What does an average day in your life look like? I start my day off always with meditation or a motivating podcast to have the right mindset in order to achieve daily goals. Every day is different with a new adventure but I try to keep myself open to different possibilities and challenges! 9. Have you released any music on streaming platforms and do you plan to? That’s maybe something possible in the future but as of right now being on set is where my passion is. 10. What legacy do you want to leave behind? I want to leave the most positive inspiring legacy for those who have any bit of doubt. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it and work hard enough.
