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.
