Model, mother and founder of Fig Femme
I am proud of the messaging that I am able to deliver through Fig Femme, breaking down taboo topics about intimate wellness by normalising the conversation.
Tell us your story – how did you get here?
I take each day as it comes and try to enjoy even the smallest of moments. I enjoy challenging myself especially in areas that I am unfamiliar with, in the hope that I will grow and learn. My children challenge me the most, but I never envisaged myself ever becoming the founder of an intimate wellness company, called Fig Femme. Growing up in Tasmania, this idea would have been wild to me. I was never very academic at school and barely completed Year Twelve. I was one of those teenagers who had no idea of what or who I wanted to become. The only thing I did know? I was very good at coming up with ideas and inventions…
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
The fact that I have launched three businesses in my lifetime, two of them being very successful. I am even proud of the business that failed because I learned many lessons from that. My new business, Fig Femme, is the new breed of intimate-wellness that caters for your most delicate of body parts. It offers a nurturing range of wellness-oriented skincare that supports self-confidence, and encourages women to take control of their individual intimate health needs. Providing a sense of empowerment, Fig aims to normalise the conversations around women’s intimate wellness, helping to foster a self-care culture that’s honest, nurturing and empowering. I am proud of the messaging that I am able to deliver through Fig Femme, breaking down taboo topics about intimate wellness by normalising the conversation.
What impact have you made in Bali?
Personally, Bali has made the biggest impact on me. Being born half Balinese and half Australian but growing up in Australia, I unfortunately did not get to experience my Balinese roots. I decided to move here with my three children back in 2011 so I could get in touch with my Balinese heritage, and for my children to be immersed in the Balinese culture. Luckily for my children, this comes easy for them and they are very Balinese. I however, am still learning, but doing my very best.
What does 2022 look like for you?
I am really hopeful that 2022 will be a fantastic year for the world over. The world has been suffering for quite some time now, especially in Bali and for the local communities. I hope that we can travel more and businesses will thrive.
What do you love most about Bali?
Bali is one of the most spiritual islands in the world. I really feel grounded living here and humbled at the same time.
What's the quirkiest thing not many people know about you?
I am obsessed with watching true crime documentaries (I literally cannot stop).
