What is your professional title, purpose or passion?
What did you want to do when you were a child and what changed?
A dancer – I went to The Brit School for four years and desperately wanted to train professionally. It is a very competitive industry, and I was realistic about the likelihood of succeeding in that industry, and although I still love it as a hobby, it wasn’t the right career path for me.
What's the best career advice you've ever been given?
“The energy you’ll expend focusing on someone else’s life is better spent working on your own. Just be your own idol.”
What is the best thing about your current working environment?
That I can completely set it myself – I don’t think anyone can constitute to one working environment, so do whatever works for you.
Where do you see yourself in five years' time?
Running Made Wright on a larger scale – we have such large plans for the business, it is really exciting to think ahead of what is to come!
Tell us more about a charitable organisation or project you think is great.
I am super passionate about several charities, so much so that with any Made Wright purchase we donate a percentage to charities around the world. The charities we work with support Women’s Rights, Conservation and Wildlife organisations.
What drives you?
Building something great – I want to build a business that people love, and in doing so, spreads some love around the world!
Any final comments?
Worry less. Learn more. Take more risk. Say yes to opportunities. Empower others. Take feedback
What does a normal day look like for you?
Every day is totally different – my days are either spent developing new products, overseeing marketing campaigns, helping to fulfil orders as well as working to grow the business – it is great to get involved with all aspects of the company!
What have you achieved that you feel most proud of?
Getting a note from a happy customer, or a thankful email from one of the charities we support.
Tell us about a a woman who inspires you
There are so many – I spend a lot of time listening and reading about female entrepreneurs, leaders, mums, and I love hearing their inspirational stories.
If I had to pick just one, it would be Ruth Baden Ginsburg – the second female Supreme Court Judge and has changed the way the courts in the US consider gender discrimination and has fought tirelessly for gender equality.
What was your biggest failure?
I’ve had many, but they are so key to your learning and development I am so glad I had them. My main thing would be worrying too much or not taking enough risks – I am always working on those things so that I develop them!
What do you like most about yourself?
I like it that I am resourceful – if I can’t do something, I will work to find a way to get it done!
How can we make the world more inclusive and accepting?
I think we need to look at people by their skills, personality, morals and what they bring to the table – not what their gender, age or background is. We should celebrate these diversities instead.
What skills have been key to your journey so far?
Probably creativity and entrepreneurship – you need to be pretty resilient too!
