Who Is Emily Riedel? 

Emily Riedel was born on July 4, 1988, in Alaska, US. There is very little information available with regards to her parents except for the fact that they were into the business of fishing. While the name of her mother is unknown, her dad has been identified as Steven Riedel. Growing up was anything but fun for young Emily as her parents were unable to provide most of the things she desired. However, in a bid to escape the harsh realities of life, she fell in love with music, classical music to be precise, and had hopes of one day becoming an opera singer.

While there is no information regarding her high school education, it’s a known fact that Emily Riedel attended the University of North Carolina’s School of Arts where she was trained on how to use her voice as a true representation of her emotions while singing. During her time as a student of the North Carolina’s School of Arts, she worked part-time in order to assist her parents in the payment of her tuition.

However, things took a different turn when she got invited to Nome, Alaska by her childhood friend Zeke Tenhoff. On getting to Norm, he offered her a job as a gold miner. Although it seemed new and highly tasking, Emily really needed the extra cash and as a result of that, she dedicated herself to learning all that the job entailed from Zeke.

Her big break eventually came in 2013 when she was offered a contract by discovery channel to feature on the reality show, Bering Sea Gold, which was solely based on the activities and life of gold miners. Without giving it much thought she accepted because she saw it as a means to achieving several goals in life. Despite being the only female on the show, she has worked her way into becoming the most important cast on the male-dominated show. Ever since taking up gold dredging as a career she has risen to heights she never thought possible. As of date, she has millions of followers on several social media platforms.
