What is your favourite/most inspiring quote?
“Extend love through creation” – very simple, yet effective I think!
What does empowerment mean to you?
That’s a tough one… To me, empowerment means taking control of your life and how you want to be living. I love the idea of sharing that and encouraging others to become more
What part of your body do you love the most?
I love my smile. While often I dislike the way my teeth appear, it’s funny that my smile is a feature that I love most! I think it’s the best way to express myself, physically.
What is your favourite quality about your personality?
I love that within darkness, I always seek the light.
When you were growing up, can you remember becoming aware of what you looked like? Were you influenced by anything in particular?
I guess once I started high school I began to realise how important looks were in that age bracket. While your body is developing, you become aware of new changes and things that you dislike. I had always had bad body image issues, as I thought I was overweight or just overly self conscious and constantly comparing myself to the other girls in my friendship group. This was a hard time that troubled me for years. It was not until a few years ago that I started to realise that looks aren’t everything and it’s important to embrace how you are created – which is incredible!
Who do you look up to and why?
I admire my mother + father, who hold immense strength! But honestly, besides them, I don’t really look up to people.
What advice would you like to share with other women?
Own who you are, embrace all that has created you + remember to uplift others daily!
If you could give advice to your 12 year old self, what would you tel her?
You’re so wonderful just the way you are.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Swimming at the beach, creating conscious + uplifting content, experimenting with food and having cuddle puddles with everyone that I love!
