What are you passionate about?

My secret passion is vulnerability. Specifically, I am passionate about creating an environment and entering a space where both myself and others feel vulnerable. Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, opportunity and personal growth. The more I can embrace vulnerability, the more I learn about myself and in turn, the more confident I become. I have attended women's leadership weekends where women are forced to participate in bonding and challenging activities such as leaping from a platform, climbing a tower or crawling through a dark and tiny tunnel. I have also attended confidence workshops and health retreats to learn about, and participate in, yoga, meditation, group therapy and mindfulness. I am passionate about seeing people overcome their personal limitations and reach their true potential.

What do you do for work or study?

Interesting question for me during my current career crossroad. I resigned from a top tier commercial law firm at the end of last year without an alternative job position in place. I am currently networking, volunteering as a mentor with Fitted For Work, writing for a magazine called Young Vagabond and hosting a series of events and workshops for young women. These are all absolutely reflecting of my personality. I used to be known as a free spirited lawyer. Now I am a free spirit pursuing my passions. I am taking my time before I commit myself to my next career move which I envisage will be in the social enterprise space with a particular focus on female empowerment.

What's your favourite thing online?

Evernote - there is no better way to gather my thoughts, remember everything and document all the wonderful articles and clips I find online so that I can use them later. Our online lives are inundated with so much these days that it is crucial to have efficient and easy to use management tools.

Introduction

I recently resigned from my job as a Commercial Lawyer to pursue my passions for female empowerment and social enterprise. I am a mentor with Fitted For Work, I host Think BIG events and workshops for young women and I am a freelance writer.
