As a teenager in Achimota Secondary School, Emilia Ainooson had her very first acting role as Eulalie in the stage play 'Dilemma of a Ghost'.
She describes the experience as one of her scariest and yet one of her best, having to perform in front of her schoolmates and the headmistress.
Acting has been a part of her life since then.
She continued to star in stage dramas long after graduating before transitioning on-screen. One of her favourite being 'Anti- clockwise' by Nii Commey. House of Umoja is her on-screen debut. Emilia is also a model and has been the brand ambassador of HFC and Cessy Designs and has graced the catwalks for Vlisco, Woodin, ATL among others.
As a trained communications specialist from the Ghana Institute of Journalism, Emilia is a seasoned marketer and events planner having worked on corporate events such as the Ghana CEOs' Summit and Mentorpreneur Business Expo 2017 and is currently studying to become a project management professional.
She aspires to be a social entrepreneur, helping young professionals develop their business through marketing and PR. Emilia is particularly looking forward to developing her passion for acting and broadcasting into a burgeoning career.
Emilia plays the role of Edem in the House of Umoja series.
