What are you most passionate about?
My passion lies with the sea. I have always found a deep admiration for the ever-changing nature of it, much like humans. Salt water gives me an overwhelming bliss, it’s where you’ll find me rain, hail or shine. A passion for health and fitness also exists in my life. From a young age, I was very sporty, trying every sport under the sun. I guess this love for a healthy lifestyle has woven its way into my adulthood now, and I can’t imagine my life without a fitness focus.
Why did you choose to work in the health industry?
Being a children’s program instructor, my biggest mission is to get kids active again. Too often I’m seeing iPad activity instead of physical activity; this is what I want to change. Exercise has incredible benefits and I want to make sure the kids of today can experience all it has to offer by putting the fun back into it.
What has been the biggest challenge you have overcome in your life?
Having only 19 years on this weird and wonderful earth I haven’t had any challenges too big. In saying that, I guess with every human life comes challenges we have to face each day. One thing I have always struggled with is finding my ‘purpose’. Not just purely life’s purpose but my individual purpose in this life. I wouldn’t say I have overcome this but damn I’m close. I think I have just come to realize that it is okay to just be. Be you, and the rest will figure itself out. Follow the signs… the universe has a plan for you.
If you could give one word of advice, what would it be?
Have trust in the universe and it will trust you back. Give where you can, and right when you need it and least expect it the universe will have your back.
What is the most inspiring quote you have heard?
“If you don’t like something, change the way you think about it” – Mum
Do you have an ethos you live by?
You are capable of so much more than you think. If you just breathe and believe you can do anything you put your mind to.
If you could invite any three people over for dinner (dead or alive), who would it be and why?
Rumi, Dalai Lama and Albert Einstein for poetic beauty, compassionate optimism, and astounding intellect.
