Industry Spotlight – Emily Haring

What is your life verse and why?
Exodus 14:14: “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” I spent a lot of my life thinking I could do it all on my own. My life changed for the better when I realized I needed to step back, be still and listen to let God guide me.

Favorite ice cream flavor?
Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia

Who’s your hero?
Is it cliché to say Jesus?He is definitely someone I look up to!

How many hours of sleep do you need?
8, ideally… supplemented by a solid afternoon nap

If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pasta. No question

Photography, filmmaking, surfing Netflix for 2 hours just to put on The Office and scroll Instagram.

Worst gift you’ve ever receive?
I got a karaoke machine for Christmas in 4th grade. I loved it so much, but everyone else within earshot for the next 6 months would beg to differ!

How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Upwards of 50. How many do I wear on the regular? Maybe 2.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
I ate fried alligator in Florida once. Tasted literally like chicken nuggets…but it had a bite to it!

Toilet paper: over or under?
Over. This is non-debatable.

On a scale of 1-10, how funny would you say you are?
Personally, 10. If it were up to others (and up to y’all reading these answers), I think it would be a generous 3.
