On “International Women’s Day” I thought it would be the perfect timing to give a shout out to the women who got me where I am today, and the ones that I have to thank for being such inspiring and wonderful people!
I couldn’t very well start this list without the woman who quite literally made me (lol ew)- but my mum is honesty the greatest woman in the entire world. I know that everyone says that, but believe me- all of my friends absolutely adore her.
She’s loving, sensitive, always has my back, she’s strong and brave and it’s one of my favourite compliments in the entire world when people compare me to her.
I would be absolutely nothing without her. What a queen she is!
Thank you Mumma for teaching me everything I know about the world and being the strongest support network imaginable.
I am so lucky that I still have both of my grandmothers in my life- but as one lives a really long way from me, I’ve spent a lot of time with my Grandma Margaret as a child and into adulthood.
She’s one of the most incredibly intelligent and creative people I’ve ever met, she has a cracking sense of humour and she’s honestly the toughest cookie in the world. Like, this woman will tell you the blunt honest truth!
Thank you Grandma for teaching me resilience and the patient to deal with people who make me want to smash my face against a wall!
Nicky is one of my parents closest family friends and she’s also basically my “other mother.” She’s the first person I told about my tattoo, she’s the one I go to for advice on life and the universe- and she’s known me since I was born.
I love this woman to pieces. Plus she has the best boy advice ever!
Thank you Nicky for teaching me how to adult in the world!
My little sister
My little sister has and always will be my absolute best friend. People say that we’re almost exactly the same personality… she would say that she’s funnier than me. Rude.
But seriously, I couldn’t have asked for a better lil sis. She has my back like nobody else, she’s got a rational head so she’s always the one I message when I want advice- plus we have the best bitching sessions together hehe.
Thank you Anna for being the only person in the world who really gets my sense of humour and for always keeping me happy when I needed a pick me up!
These two girls
I have been best friends with Lici and Eil since I was 11 years old. They have quite literally guided me through most of my life and amazingly they haven’t been scared off yet.
They’re the most fabulous pair of humans, the best support network and it’s so great to have women who uplift you and want you to be the best that you can be.
Thank you to these two for teaching me what true friendship looks like and another shout-out to Eil for pulling sea-anemone out of my foot and still making me die with laughter whilst doing it!
The thing is, I could have listed millions of fabulous women that inspire and motivate me in my life and career… but when it comes down to it, the women who I love and cherish most, are the ones who i surround myself with everyday!
