About a year ago I walked away from my career in Health because I wasn’t passionate about it. My current 9 to 5 or in my case 7 to 4 is doing Administration for JB HiFi so I’m in an Office all day staring at a computer screen... Not quite what I had in mind but it’s temporary. What is your passion or side hustle? After leaving my job, I saw myself working with something more hands on, creative and that i was really passionate about. It was a blessing to meet Jodia and be introduced to Sydney Romantics. I instantly knew that it was something really special and I’m lucky to be a part of the team now. When I’m not working on projects with Sydney Romantics I also collect and restore retro furniture and am a freelance Make-up Artist. What drives you? Happiness and the amazing vibe that is surrounding all of us right now. It’s crazy how quickly things can come together when you surround yourself with positivity. How do you juggle it all? It’s hard and I’m still learning how to juggle it all. Who inspires you? There are quite a few people in my everyday life who inspire me. Jamie for his unconditional love and support, he constantly pushes me to step out of my comfort zone and be the best version of me. I feel like I can do anything because I know that no matter what, he will always be there for me. Jodia inspires me every day with his unwavering and unstoppable passion. He has allowed me to be a part of something great and I can not thank him enough for lighting a fire in me. Finally, my mum because she is the ultimate superwoman and taught me that I can do it all. Where do you see yourself in the future? I honestly don’t know where I see myself in the future but I only see good things coming. I am on this amazing journey with Sydney Romantics and I don’t want to set any limitations or expectations because I’m so happy to live in the moment and be happy. What do you love about Sydney? Sydney is beautiful. There was this moment a few weeks ago where I was on the train and we were going over the Harbour Bridge and I just looked out the window and was like Damn.. this city really is beautiful. What I love most about Sydney though is that is a large melting pot of cultures. Tell us your favourite thing to do in Sydney? Dive Bars and Restaurants. I absolutely love going to quirky bars and restaurants - there are so many good places but my current favourites would be Ester in Chippendale, Restaurant Hubert in the city and Jacoby’s Tiki Bar in Newtown.
