Emma Draper

Emma is our Local Democracy Reporter.

Emma was born and raised in the Isle of Man and after finishing her A-Levels, moved 580km to the University of Portsmouth to study journalism (and for the weather). 

Whilst studying, she played for the university’s rounders team, covered the Portsmouth South hustings for the 2019 general election for student media and won a pub quiz by being the only person who knew Stormzy’s real name.
After graduating in 2022, Emma returned to the island to live rent free with her parents. And to work as a local democracy reporter of course.

In her spare time she enjoys running, wearing brightly coloured clothing and impressing people with her pop culture knowledge.
