Early Promise
Born in the United States before moving over to Dublin at the age of five, Emma Dabiri recounts her experience as the only dark-skinned person she knew as a lonely and isolated time in her life. As a result of bullying and racism she turned to books and academia as her solace. This led to her to embark on a journalism course in Ballyfermot before going on to study African Studies in London at the School of Oriental and African Studies. While there she was scouted by a model scout which got her a step into the industry and led to her attracting the attention of television makers. As a result, she made her first appearance on screen hosting three series as host of BBC Four’s art series ‘Britain’s Lost Masterpieces’.
