Meet Munzee Munzday: Emma

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. To bring back this fun way to introduce team members, here is one of our latest recruits!

Update: Emma’s player name is violetblonde 🙂

Name and Title:

Emma Polini, Digital Content Creator

Where are you from?

I am from Westfield, NJ, a born and raised East Coast Jersey girl

Cowboys fans, we come in peace.

Tell us about yourself:

I am bilingual (English and poorly accented French). My favorite English word is catalyst, and my favorite French word is témoin. My favorite thing to do is create things out of blank spaces, and I enjoy all forms of writing as well as painting and drawing. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Austin College in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in English, emphasis creative writing, and minors in French and Art. I was fortunate enough to join several honors societies, including Phi Beta Kappa, and I spent several months after graduation in Cannes, France before serving as a Managing Editor of several newspapers for a year and then upgrading big time by joining MHQ. I have a tabby named Cat (after Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and a rescue dog named Henry (after Henry Miller), because I’m that kind of English nerd. My favorite book is Tropic of Capricorn, my favorite writers are Oscar Wilde and Haruki Murakami, and my favorite poem is The Waste Land. I consider myself cool because I can recite full passages from it, and that probably tells you a lot about me.

How long have your worked for Munzee?

I joined MHQ this past January, and I get to work next door to the bossman himself! Who knew a 9-5 could be so fun.

How did you find Munzee?

I have been living in McKinney since my summer in France and lucked upon this opportunity. MHQ was looking for a digital content creator to keep up with blog writing, social media, and client relations, and I was seeking to switch career paths.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

I think it’s really important to build a sense of community so that you don’t feel isolated, and I love that Munzee draws together people from all walks of life who share similar interests. Opportunities such as Clan Wars allow players from all around the world to “fight” together on teams, and I love seeing the friendships formed and meeting players who travel all the way to to McKinney to visit us (aka Rob). It’s also exciting to read about player achievements and witness people celebrating each other.

What are some of your other hobbies?

I love to write, and I keep up with fiction and poetry writing, as well as journals. I also keep a weekly blog so that I can discuss social issues, because standing up for human rights is something that is crucial to me. I enjoy oil painting and mixed media art as well, and I also love to exercise. My favorite exercises are jogging and yoga, because I am too uncoordinated for formal sports, but surprisingly graceful on the yoga mat. I also love all animals, even tarantulas, which actually feel like bunny rabbits if you pet them. I especially enjoy rescuing animals and giving them to my friends/family!

Famous last words?

It’s all a dream. (Julia’s last words to Spike)
