What inspires you? 

I have long work days. To re-energize, there’s nothing like laying on a patch of grass or sand and absorbing some vitamin D. Also, being submerged in water is re-energizing, whether it’s the ocean or a warm bath. Being away from the thing I do all day allows me to recalibrate and come back with fresh ideas. I like having time to let my mind wander without interruption. 

What is your favorite place to travel to? 

I like preparing to go to sleep. Dreamland is my favorite place to visit. It’s like going on a free adventure every night. I have the craziest dreams. Dreaming helps me sort out problems or questions I may have during the day.

What do you think about when you are alone? 

I think about all the things I want to do in this life and how I won’t have enough time to do them all. I have a sense of borrowed time. I often think about where I’ve been and where I am now. I’m constantly trying to push myself further and maybe provide a little bit of inspiration to other girls and women.

What do you believe? 

Take care of your health, treat the people around you right, and never be stingy with yourself. Also, it’s true, what you give is what you get, so give good energy. 

What is your favorite song? 

The Happy Birthday song. It never fails to bring a smile to someone’s face. I also like the Unbirthday song; it reminds me that you don’t need a reason to eat cake, drink a nice cup of tea, and celebrate being you.
