What does International Woman's Day mean to you? International Women's Day to me is a day where we celebrate women of all diversity. It is a day that should help women feel empowered and proud, where we celebrate the achievements and progression women are continuing to have in today's society. This day is about recognising, supporting and empowering women. It is about building one another up and fighting for what we believe in.

Which women inspire you in your local community and globe? Coming from a journalism and presenter background myself, I can’t go past a true icon; Oprah Winfrey. Her compassionate personality and engagement in charity, along with the outstanding career achievements she has created for herself inspires me.

“…It is about building one another up and fighting for what we believe in…”

Mental health is also a subject close to my heart, which is why I must say that women battling mental illness are the ones who truly inspire me daily. They put their brave faces on and continue to get through life no matter what battle they may be facing. Any woman who can take on a mental illness and continue to get out of bed each morning is an inspiring hero in my eyes.

If you could have dinner with any woman in the world (living or dead), who would it be? Cliché I know, but it would be my grandma. She was my best friend and the strongest woman I have ever known. She taught me my core values and ideologies growing up. My grandma fought cancer for many years, and I would love to be able to ask her now how she was so strong, how she continued to get up and fight each day and yet still always stood up for what she believed in and practised self-love. She is my ideal boss woman.

What does equality mean to you? Equality to me means that every individual has the opportunity and rights to make the most of their life no matter what race, gender, sex or ability. Equality is acceptance and appreciation of everyone.

What does girl power mean to you? The phrase "Girl Power" takes me straight back to the 90s where I lived and loved all things Spice girls! Girl power is all about supporting and empowering yourself, your girls and all of the other gorgeous girls out there! We are all different, we are all individuals, but Girl Power means we are all together! Girl power is about respecting each other's differences and accepting, loving and appreciating each other for them! You go girl!

What achievements are you most proud of in your life so far? The greatest achievements in my life that I am truly proud of are the relationships I have developed with my nearest and dearest. I truly believe the people you have in your life are a reflection of you, your values and your morals. I am surrounded by the most supportive, kind, caring and loving network of people. That is my greatest achievement!

“…Girl Power is about respecting each other’s differences and accepting, loving and appreciating each other for them…”


If you could give your teenage self some advice, what would it be? When I was a teenager, I was scared to really put myself out there and show what I was truly capable of. I think a lot of people can reflect back to a time where they held back on showing their full potential because "it wasn't cool". The advice I would give to my teenage self would be to give 110% and to seize every opportunity! A few years ago, my Dad said to me "If you don't go, you don't go", I wish I could say that to my teenage self because it has made me take chances and really LIVE LIFE.

What does equality mean to you? To me the term ‘equality’, put quite simply means we are all equal. We are all united and “in it together!” Equality means there is no prejudice or discrimination, and everyone is accepted, valued and appreciated for who they are as individuals.

“…Supporting other women is believing that their success is also yours…”


You and your sister seem so close, how do you think women can support each other better? My sister and I shared a womb together so we had to learn to get along. Supporting other women is believing that their success is also yours. Help a sister out because we are a team.

How do you balance life as a woman and mother of two?
I take irrationally long showers, colour my hair silver and listen to real music when my kids aren’t in the car. But nothing has made me stronger as a woman than being a mother of two.

What does equality mean to you? Equality is when everyone realises that we are all just human beings. No amount of money, power or fame changes this fundamental truth.

What does girl power mean to you? Confident, Strong, Beautiful & Supportive. In unity, it’s about celebrating ourselves and each other, embracing who we are & and who we are meant to be. Unique, imperfect, beautiful.

What achievements are you most proud of in your life so far? Starting my own company and becoming self-employed based off a passion. After struggling through my high school years, I later learnt in my 20s that I'm a practical learner. This wasn't catered to back then, which left me feeling like I wasn't overly smart. I lacked self-confidence and was convinced I wasn't destined for success. I'm very proud of all the hard work I’ve put in and hurdles I've overcome over the past 10 years. I've proved to myself I am worthy, I am determined and I can do anything I set my mind to.

“…Just because you don’t fit into a certain mould, doesn’t mean you don’t fit in somewhere else…”


If you could give your teenage self some advice, what would it be? Honestly it sounds cliché, but to just trust and believe in myself more. Just because you don't fit into a certain mould, doesn't mean you don't fit somewhere else.

What does equality mean to you? Fairness, everyone should be treated fairly with equal opportunities no matter who you are! In New Zealand we are so blessed with what we have, and we need to do better at being united as a country to uplift each other and not tear each other down. Everyone is special, everyone is unique and we need to celebrate that. ❤️
