Emiliana Werna

BSC Marketing and Management with Media 

Emiliana is currently on a placement from the University of Sussex and is studying Marketing and Management with Media. During her first two years at Sussex, she has studied various modules such as human resource management, international marketing and consumer behaviour. Born in Germany and raised in Switzerland with Brazilian parents, Emiliana has a very international background which has shaped the person she is today.

Alongside her studies, Emiliana has been working for a new app called Society (now available on the app store!). She has created and implemented a student brand ambassador programme, where she’s training and is responsible for over 200 student ambassadors from over 50 universities across the United Kingdom! Her mother is also an entrepreneur, with her own jewellery brand ISLA. Emiliana has been helping with all aspects of the brand including marketing and influencer communications. Additionally, she is the proud co-founder and president of the Sussex Swiss Society. A society that brings people of Swiss origin together, or anyone else who likes cheese and chocolate!

Her main hobby is sport, primarily football, wakeboarding and CrossFit. She is also training for the Brighton half marathon to fundraise money for the charity Grassroots. She also loves cheesy musicals, her favourites are High School Musical, Mamma Mia and the Greatest Showman. Minimalism and self-development are topics that Emiliana has recently taken interest in, where she believes that getting out of your comfort zone is the best and only way to truly grow as an individual. Emiliana also holds the record of being the world’s biggest dog lover, with Labradors and Saint Bernard’s as her favourite breeds.

She’s very passionate about making a difference in her work and finding purpose. Moreover, she hopes to extend her knowledge across sectors and learn new skills. She’s very excited to work with a range of clients and help them grow. She’s ready to challenge herself and learn as much as possible along the way!
