Emilia Bergmans was born and raised in Amsterdam, but chose to study graphic design in London. She worked for design agencies Koeweiden Postma and Studio Anthon Beeke in Amsterdam and helped organise pitches for young creatives with Stichting JongeHonden.
In 2007 she went back to school to study art direction at the Miami Ad School in Hamburg. It gave her an amazing opportunity to travel and to learn about countries through their advertising. She met many awesome people along the way.
After going to Stockholm and London she came to Wieden + Kennedy Shanghai for her last internship and has lived there happily ever after.
