Born on 27th May 1994 in Kitwe, Copperbelt province, Emmah is an only child from a Lozi family. She completed her secondary education at Kasama Girlsâ€™ secondary School. Currently in her 3rd year at the University of Zambia studying Environmental studies, Emmah enjoys singing, modelling, playing volleyball, reading novels and magazines.
â€śI think everyone has an in born talent that can help them make a living. As for me, modeling is that talent,â€ť She said.
Emmah derives inspiration from her aunt, Lavida Chalomba, former Miss Tourism 2006. Her love for modeling has helped her scoop a number of beauty pageant titles.
â€śIn 2007 I was crowned Miss Copperbelt, I then scooped Miss MpulunguÂ and Miss Independence in 2008 and, in 2015 I earned the title of Miss Unza.
She is also a runway model as she participated in the 2016 Zambia Fashion Week.
Emmahâ€™s title has earned her a spot in this yearâ€™s Miss University World contest in China. The young beauty wishes to use her title to help the society in fighting against child abuse and as a result she has worked with organisations that help do so.
“I am a very determined person who values education. My advice to anyone who wants to pursue a career in modeling is to place school as a number one priority because the art industry in Zambia is not as recognised as it is in other developed countries around the world,â€ť she alluded.
In the next five years, the Miss University 2016 crowned princess sees herself pursuing her second degree in Law and modeling abroad.
â€śI do not wish to stop modeling, even when am 70 I will keep modeling. I plan onÂ having a modeling agency where I will teach, empower and groom upcoming models worldwide,â€ť Emmah said.

FIFA RESPONDS TO FAZ COMPLAINT ON NIGERIA APPEAL
FIFA has put a close to the debate around the complaint lodged by the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) over an Augustine Mulenga disallowed goal in the 1-0 loss against Nigeria in a Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier on October 7.
The World soccer governing body has ruled that it would not act on the complaint as per their regulations there was no evidence of external influence or manipulation.
According to a letter signed by Disciplinary Committee vice chairperson Julien Deux, dated October 17, 2017 there could be no action as guided by article 5.6 of the FIFA regulations the refereeâ€™s decision is final.
â€śIn this context, we refer your association to article 15 par 6, of the regulations of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, which clearly stipulates that no protests may be made about the refereeâ€™s decisions regarding facts connected with play. Such decisions are final and not subject to appeal,â€ť stated the letter.
â€śHaving said that, and for the sake of good order, we would like to emphasize that on the basis of the documentation and information currently in our possession, there is no evidence of any infringement of the applicable regulations by the referees of the match in question.â€ť
The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) filed a complaint with FIFA seeking an independent review of the match officiated by Botswana referee Joshua Bondo.
There was widespread outcry for FAZ to appeal to FIFA over the disallowed goal with parallels drawn with other situations where the world soccer governing body had ordered replays.
FAZ president Andrew Kamanga had told journalists on the permutations of the outcome when journalists pressed him in the aftermath of the match in Uyo.
â€śBut the rules being what they are you cannot overturn the decision of the referee,â€ť Kamanga said.
â€śThe only basis is when there was external influence. So the referee maybe carpeted for making a wrong decision but the decision still stands and unfortunately that is where we stand.â€ť
