Emma Watkins // Performing, a PhD and putting on a frock!‪!‬ Seize the Yay

    • Society & Culture

There aren’t many things that evoke more YAY than the Wiggles, especially a sunshine-coloured one!!! While she has now officially hung up her yellow Wiggle shoes, Emma Watkins still radiates like a sunbeam and we are so lucky to have her here today. 
As always, it was such a delight to trace back to a younger Emma who never could have dreamed of where she’d end up and with whom I have an earlier very intense dancer’s life in common. You might have guessed that her love for the arts has been lifelong, but you might NOT know she’s also a skilled filmmaker, has been in Bollywood films, won Miss Granny Smith Apples AND learnt Auslan all before becoming the first ever female Wiggle.
Now, she is doing some incredible work with artistic integrations of sign language through her PhD which you will hear all about in the episode. PLUS Emma's also stepping into some beautiful frocks this month as an ambassador for the OCRF's incredible Frocktober Campaign – I’ve popped links below to this incredible initiative.
