She is a young, single, fabulous American working in marketing in the French capital who follows on a large scale on Instagram – meeting real life “Emily in Paris!”
Emily Jackson, a 28-year-old go-getter, has been harassed on TV’s Comedie since she appeared on Netflix this month, as the experience is similar to her own.
“I not only share the name and career of the main character, but most of the conspiracies also resonate with me,” Jackson told The Post. “There are a lot of clicks but some truths.”
Born and raised in Chappell Hill, NC, Shyama has lived in Light City for six years, summing it up as “beautiful, difficult and valuable.”
Like Hapless Millennial (played by Lily Collins), who works for the Snooty marketing firm on the show, he fell in love with Paris Reese, despite the shock of early culture, who could not beat the former Pato.
“When I arrived as a couple I didn’t really speak the language and I felt this city was dirty.” “It’s smelling just like in the corner of the subway.”
Similar to the fictional Emily, Jackson first lived in the so-called “Chamber de Bone” – the small servants’ quarters at the top of the walk-up on the fifth floor – and breathed a sigh of relief.
She noted – at the door of the building, near the Place de la Répélica, in which she shares an apartment with a one-room mate – – “possibly human,” she noted – it was also unfortunate to encounter a large fecal deposit.
“I was almost going to boot-camp class,” he laughed. “There was a big footprint in it when I got back, and that guy made it into my house.”
Still, the slow, “non-tourist” pace made Jackson admire the metropolis by learning to enjoy Paris. It was entered through its public gardens, monuments and cozy neighborhoods.
In 2014, after a few months of his job caring for children, he launched his own blog – theglitteringunphan – and posted images on Instagram.
While TV Emily shoots fun photos with her iPhone – a chic, vintage camera-inspired case provided by a famous costume designer Patricia Field – Jacques invested $ 500 in a Canon SL1 to capture her adventures.
“It’s a highlight reel, a chronology of my life,” said the fashionista, who favors labels ranging from topshops to small Polish designer Bedra vintage. The stunning images she uploaded began with scenes from iconic spots such as Le Jardine du Palace Royale, La Tour Eiffel and L’Arc de Triomphe.
The venture paid off as it gathered 10,000 followers in two years. That figure has now more than doubled to 21,800.
Best of all, his successful awe in social media led him to his business. After her pair left the family, a University of North Carolina graduate was picked up by boutique French marketing agencies. Over the past five years, he has promoted a wide range of products ranging from artificial candles to electrical appliances.
‘I love my job,’ said Jackson, who has campaigned under his belt for high-profile brands such as El Occitan en Provence and L’Oreal. “The people who market in Paris don’t make as much sense as Emily’s colleagues. He is very professional and would never dream of saying ‘American’. [which translates as ‘the hick’] As they do on Netflix. “
Still, the Parisians have their say. “There’s a lot going on around the street where you feel like saying:‘ Get the room ’and customer service is awesome,” Jackson said. ‘
In one of her trademark humorous Instagram captions, she described how a thoughtless neighbor threw water from a kiddie pool on her cast-iron balcony this spring. Jackson, in the middle of a nice post featuring lemon water, a straw hat and a book, got out of the damp.
“If my phone, laptop or camera were near my balcony, I would have climbed up to pitch the fit.”
Sadly, there is a dearth of generous men – such as Collins’ hobby of love, Gabriel (played by Lucas Bravo, a native of Nice, France) – living in an apartment apartment below Jackson.
Describing the dating scene in Paris as “as bad as any other big city” because of its fleeting population, Jackson said that was not the case.
She remembers a particularly devastating encounter with a Frenchman who asked her to drink on the subway. “He ordered tea and told me that after he got drunk and hit his friend so hard on the face that he became unconscious, he had to go to the hospital.” “Then he quizzed me about my sexual preferences. I was like this: ‘Oh my God, I know where this is going from.’ ”
When she made her excuses and left, she did not give up hope of meeting Monsieur Wright.
He said, “The main reason I want to compromise is not so much because I want to get married, it’s because I hate dating.” “I mean: ‘Stop it!’ ”
