My First Blog Post


Wow, I can’t believe I am finally sitting down to write my first post, an insight into my inner being. First of all I just want to say that this is something I have been thinking about doing for a while. The fear of imperfection slowed my progress for a long time, I wanted to share so much with the world but was always left feeling like it would never be enough. After reading many blogs, listening to podcasts and talking to friends I have finally mustered the courage to make my own blog. So here it is.


So who am I exactly? I’m a junior in college studying Integrative Physiology with a certificate of Public Health at the University of Colorado-Boulder. 12,002km away from where I grew up in New Zealand (the land of the long white cloud). In my spare time I practice yoga, do some cycling and running to keep me sane, and am one of the leaders of the CU chapter of Global Public Health Brigades. I am also a newfound vegan, recovered anorexic and was an elite junior road cyclist.


I am a daughter, sister, friend, girlfriend and auntie but most importantly I am a curious girl on a journey to finding my authentic self and what it really means to be alive. Over the past 20 years, and most importantly over the last few years, I have learned many valuable lessons about empowering myself, finding passions, overcoming setbacks, reducing negativity in the world and surviving college as a conscious earthling. Through this blog I hope to teach, share and learn about these experiences and ultimately inspire people to start an internal conversation about how to be the best version of themselves.


I am hopeful that this blog will inspire you, the reader, to absorb some of what I write about and use it as fuel for the fire in your everyday life. Now that I have a greater understanding of human physiology and health through my degree I hope to incorporate these aspects as well. I feel like I have so much to teach the world, especially to those struggling with many of the same things I have been through. I wish I had had a mentor at the time to help me along my way. That is what I hope to be to you. I want to know what you care about, what you want to learn, and how I can help you towards a sense of peace and satisfaction in your life.


I am excited and dedicated to bringing you weekly content. Please contact me at and tell me what you want to hear about! I would love to receive as much feedback as possible so that I can make this website an extremely useful and impactful platform.


Thank you for taking the time to read this, I truly feel blessed.

  • The many things I am still working on.
