I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT
Being a woman has many advantages but equally, comes with many challenges. My motivation has always been to solve problems, that's why I became a designer. Technology, and its exponential growth has helped us to achieve a globally recognised voice. It’s allowed us to consolidate ideas, convey opinions, initiate movement and social activism, provide deeper insights and true meaning. I have always felt strongly about fairness and justice, in particular around women, feeling compelled to inspire and help women to realise their potential.
I'm a firm believer in equality. However, women need be recognised and applauded for their individual and collective successes. I am passionate about helping women to recognise their worth, valuing themselves truly and not adhering to cultural norms or societal conditioning regarding gender.
On a personal note, I am a simple person, happiest by and in the ocean, breathing deeply and be warmed by the sun. I feel eternally grateful that I reside in a beautiful country that allows me to explore and feel grounded and have the privilege of calling it home. I love my life, being a partner, mother and a good friend and feeling a sense of belonging in a community is an important component of this.
I’m proud of that fact that I am resilient. I am driven and determined and will find my way, 'survivor' technique. I would hope that one of my greatest accomplishments thus far, is my ability to choose good people that I surround myself with and the resilience to look forward and act on it.
I admire women who against all odds stand strong and true. JK Rowling for her tenacity and ability to pick herself up from a place of struggle to that which has made her a huge success story. Malala Yousafzai, a truely gifted and amazing girl, empath and gift to the human race, prepared to go out on a limb for her beliefs.
Mostly, I admire the strength and courage that women every where can gain both individually and collectively, we are important and we are worthy. We are heroines.
I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT
helping women realise their brilliance and live a more meaningful, beautiful life. The most meaningful moments in my life have been wonderful, authentic experiences with inspiring people, and I want to have more of that- and help other women have that too. I want to see more women living a vibrant life, honouring themselves and showing up to be seen.
I am happiest in deep, meaningful conversation, achieving harmony on the back of a horse, exercising my creativity, learning from wise people, hiking in beautiful places, stilling my thoughts through writing and getting lost in a good book. I love animals, fashion, art and the smell of woodsmoke in winter.
I have been a scientist, swing dancer, horse nutritionist, balloon artist, designer and branding consultant. I am thirsty for knowledge and I am a seeker. I am proud of having moved to a new country, getting my MBA while running my design business, my amazing relationship with my husband and daughter, getting through a tough pregnancy and newborn stage, and going through a faith crisis in regard to my childhood religion and coming out with my spirituality and family relationships intact.
Oh there’s too many to list here! The top ones would have to be Oprah for how she’s inspired the world by being true to herself and leading her life with love, honor and authenticity, my coach Peleg Top for his wisdom, brilliance and ability to bring out the best in people and help them shine, Krista Tippet for her sensitive, curious and erudite approach to spirituality, and my grandparents for achieving phenomenal success but doing it with grace, integrity and generosity. Of course my inspiring, brilliant and courageous friends and family leave me in awe daily. They remind me of who I am, what is possible and what truly matters.
