What do you do? I am a student of life, doing whatever comes my way. There is so much amazing stuff going on in Auckland at the moment. I have never seen myself as an "academic" so university just doesn't seem the right place for me. But I love "doing and making" so I am interning wherever anyone will have me, learning as much as I can.

How would your girlfriends describe you? Delightfully insane with a terrible singing voice (but they let me sing anyway).

If you could sit down for dinner with three women who would they be and why? Tavi Gevinson, editor of Rookie Magazine. She made me feel comfortable in my own weirdness when I was younger. Annabel Liddell from Miss June cos I just love both her music and her politics and Nina Van Lier who's the Art Director of Black Magazine because she is my best friend and the most loving, creative person I know. Actually the human most inspiring me right now is human rights advocate Aych Mcardle who has just been representing NZ at the UN in Geneva.

What do you think makes Kiwi women unique? That we can try anything and we have an amazing can do attitude. We are not afraid to give something, anything a try.

What's the best thing about being young in 2016? It just feels like no-one has put any limitations on us right now - we can just jump in and get involved in whatever is there.
