In an interview with The Daily Beast, Emma revealed her life as an adolescent:
I was a huge computer nerd. I built websites! I would go online on forums, had a bunch of Internet friends, and would build free websites for people because I was trying to teach myself HTML. I was really just fucking around the whole time, trying to make frames and drop-down menus, so if the chance arose I could be a website designer. I wasn’t good at the graphics at all, so I really wasn’t going places. And I had an online newsletter called Neptune, which was an e-zine for girls 12-18 where I made up the advice column and wrote articles, because I thought I wanted to be a journalist for a long time—I still kind of do.
Yesterday on the Today Show she spoke to Ann Curry about her dreams of becoming a journalist and/or editor, too:
Yep! I can absolutely see her nerdy side now…
