BORN • with @movre__magazine

What month were you born in?


Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Park Orchards, an outer eastern suburb of Melbourne. I love it there because it's like half-way between country and city living - very quiet but still close enough to everything.

What did you want to be when you 'grew up'?
When I was younger I was set on being a doctor! I think I watched too many medical TV shows... haha. However, I ended up studying aerospace engineering, then exercise science and now I run a personal training business - very different to what I ever thought I would be doing!

What would you tell your 5 year old self?
I would tell my 5 year old self to stop worrying about what other people think and have confidence in yourself and your unique abilities. Do more of what you love, do less of what you don't and focus on the present moment - do what feels right and don't worry about the future so much.

What is something that you have learnt about yourself growing up?
The biggest thing I have learnt about myself is how much brighter life can be when you realise you are 100% in control and you have this innate worth that will always be there. My world completely changed when I a) started living as if I had control over EVERY action I took and b) understood my true worth as a unique person, and how to channel that as inner strength and confidence.
