Miss Duggan has navigated her own path successful within the male-dominated world of race car driving.
In 2016, she made history as the first female driver to compete in the Super3 V8 Touring Car Series.
"I entered motorsports knowing the odds were against me as a woman, but I wanted to try.
"I'd rather have tried and failed than have listened to the naysayers who said it couldn't be done," she said.
Using the hashtag #EverythingIsPossible, Emily seeks to inspire others to follow their passion and it's one of the reasons she has chosen to become a VERTO Ambassador.
"VERTO's commitment to transforming careers and reskilling people is amazing. These services are needed more than ever right now and VERTO has taken action with online courses and continued support through apprenticeships and training to ensure no one is left behind," she said.
Miss Duggan has worked tirelessly to prove doubters wrong, and leapfrog hurdles standing in the way of her path to success which included a lack of family support, little knowledge of the industry and no financial backing.
"The reason I love motorsport so much is because it is one of very few sports that women and men compete equally for the same title - champion," she said.
