Emily Myint is a 24-year-old small business owner and social media manager living in Los Angeles, California. She graduated from San Diego State University in December 2019 with her Bachelor of Arts in Journalism with an emphasis in Social Media and a minor in Television, Film and Media Production.
Emily founded her business, Hey Libby Lu, in August 2020 in the midst of quarantine after several full time job offers were cancelled due to the pandemic. Emily decided to create her own destiny by starting her own business out of her one bedroom apartment. She discovered a new world of owning a small business on Tik Tok and that’s when she decided to purchase an iPad, an Apple Pencil and a Cricut Maker to start making stickers. She began making and selling stickers on Etsy and since then, she has created her own website, grown her business’ social media to over 20K followers on Instagram and Tik Tok, and has sold to all 50 states with over 2,000 sales. Hey Libby Lu now sells apparel, tote bags, keychains, accessories and more!
Aside from her small business, Emily is also the social media and business manager of Adaa Dance Academy in Orange County. Some of her responsibilities include creating and overseeing Facebook ads to increase student enrollment at the studio, designing social media graphics in Canva and Procreate, publishing e-mail campaigns via ActiveCampaign, overseeing social media content on Instagram, and administrative responsibilities which include keeping track of student information, organizing Trello and emails, and creating surveys and forms. Emily also plans events including the annual dance recital where she is in charge of contacting and booking vendors, all social media and email communication with parents, designing the program booklet and all graphics, and more.
During her time at San Diego State University, she was the Campus Correspondent and Chapter President for Her Campus SDSU in which she oversaw her executive board in social media strategy, events planning, and recruitment while also publishing their online magazine. Emily gained several opportunities involving social media experience throughout her collegiate career. During her last semester, she became an Influencer Management Intern for InfluenceHer Collective at Her Campus Media. She was able to learn about influencer relations by working on talent outreach, creating and planning social media content, and building community within the InfluenceHer Collective.
Leadership is something that Emily truly loves. During college, she held several leadership positions in her sorority and within Greek life. Aside from being the chapter president of Her Campus at SDSU, she was also the Academic Excellence Chair and Magazine Chair in Kappa Delta SDSU. Additionally, she was Vice President of Membership for Order of Omega Greek Honor Society, Public Relations & Social Media Director for Rho Lambda Sorority Leadership Society, and was a Rho Gamma during Panhellenic Recruitment.
Emily looks forward to her career in social media and is excited to see what the future holds.
