Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
The person who most inspired me personally was my year 10-12 English teacher Mrs Mitchell. She was a hippy at heart and knew every word to every Bob Dylan song ever written…and she made us dance in class!
Mostly she made you feel that as a woman you could do anything, be anything….you just had to believe in yourself! Pretty powerful!
