BORN • with @blyjones

What month were you born in?
I’m a June baby.

Where did you grow up?
I grew up on the Mornington Peninsula, which is a coastal town around an hour away from Melbourne.

What did you want to be when you 'grew up'?
I actually wanted about 5 jobs when I was little. One per day. Which is probably why blogging suits me. I wanted to be an inventor, a doctor, an equestrian rider, a writer and a designer. Finally I narrowed it down to fashion designer.

What would you tell your 5 year old self?
I would tell myself that things are in your control way less then you think, so don’t worry so much and just ride the wave.

What is something that you have learnt about yourself growing up?
That’s a tough question because I think the whole process of growing up is a real learning expedition. I’ve learnt that I’m ambitious and I’m nurturing by nature. But I’ve also learnt that personal well-being is of the upmost importance because you can’t help anyone until you help yourself. It’s kind of like putting the oxygen mask on yourself before others, it seems selfish at first but it’s the only way.
