Tell us a little bit about yourself?

HI! I am a 22 year old Gold Coaster who loves her family, friends and is always up for a frozen margi! I am a very impulsive person which can sometimes lead to some of the best/worst decisions. Yolo is one of my life motto’s and I am someone who loves to practice being wholesome during the week but loves a drink (or 10) on a Friday night.

Where is your happy place & why? 

I am happiest at a festival, the beach, when I’m out with friends, at home. I think just being surrounded by my nearest and dearest makes me the happiest!

What inspires you?

 Pinterest always haha.. and I guess just being inspired by the amount of freedom I have to do what truly makes me the happiest when I know others out there don’t have that privilege.

What are some of your favourite things to do for yourself?

Looking after myself! Listening to my body and what it needs. Going for walks through Burleigh headland or going to a hot yoga class during the week (miss u). Putting on some essential oils, face mask, hair treatment just having a self-care routine! I loveee taking the time to dress up and putting on a new outfit as well.

Where is your favourite place you have travelled to and why? 

A LOT of favourite places. I love travelling, but my breath was taken away when I went to Paros, Greece in 2017. I think because I had no expectations compared to the other islands. We just had the best time there I can’t wait to go back!

What is your favourite travelling or festival story? 

There are waaaay too many favourites! Combining both I’d have to say the most recent festival Snow Machine in Hakuba Japan is top. The whole 5 days were I N S A N E. Being in the snow watching my FAVOURITE Australian artists drinking grape chuhai’s with my besties. I just remember thinking what is my life.

What are you grateful for?

Everything. Having a loving family, being surrounded by amazing true friends, music, the beach. I am also grateful for the all lessons I have learnt so far. 

Tell us something that brought a smile to your face this week.

This! Connection, love and support is so so important right now. I love this whole concept and being inspired by everyday people.
