Emma Page is a student journalist from Ilkeston.
I was born in Nottingham City Hospital, and bought back to Ilkeston where I have lived all my life.
What are your hobbies?
If I could, I would be on holiday every day of the year. I love Paris, visiting new places, trying new things, getting lost in a good book, taking too many photos, and moaning on Twitter.
What is your favourite film?
I LOVE the Hangover films. They are hilarious! It’s one of those films that you can just quote from in daily conversations and it’s so funny when you do.
What is your biggest achievement in life?
When I was 17 I met Liam Fray, the lead singer of the Courteeners, and I was so star struck I couldn’t even talk. But I still met him and got a photo with him, so it was one of the best days of my life.
What are your hopes for the future of this area?
I’d like to see more businesses opening in the centre of town, just to revive Ilkeston again. I think it’s such a shame that there are so many empty shops.
What is your favourite place to eat in Ilkeston?
Stacey’s Bakery! I love their sausage rolls, gingerbread men, flapjacks, chocolate muffins and lemon tarts.
Where is your favourite local place to go on a day trip?
I’m happy with a picnic and a walk around Shipley Park, but only if it’s sunny! If it’s raining I like to go into Nottingham or Derby and spend too much money in the shops.
What is your idea of a perfect Saturday night?
I love spending time with the girls, be it a night on the town, a night in, or a nice meal somewhere. They never fail to make me smile!
If you could change anything in Ilkeston what would it be?
I’d like to see more shops and businesses on Bath Street. I would love to see a Primark in Ilkeston!
What will your epitaph say?
“She’s still smiling.”
