to follow your dreams, to speak up, and to draw outside the lines. Let her tell you about how surfing taught her to live in the present and helped her face her fears.

Emilie Uttrup is a surfer, keynote speaker, writer/content creator and holds a Master’s Degree in Marketing.
Growing up in Denmark, she competed in show-jumping with horses and at the age of nineteen moved to China to work professionally within the equestrian industry. A tragic car accident in 2009 turned Emilie’s life upside down, and forced her to confront everything she had ever known.
Fast forward ten years later, and Emilie has since lived in three different countries, represented her country in both the European and the World Surfing Championships, and most importantly, has opened up about her struggles throughout. Come hear her story!
