Woman Wednesday: Lisa

Q and A with Lisa, Mackay, Queensland, Australia

“If you can dream it, you can do it.”

Q: What are you passionate about? 

A: My interests are sailing, writing, and drawing. I get my inspiration from my two beautiful children, Bridgette and Nicholas, who encourage me to follow my dream and passion to become a famous author. My inspiration also comes from the ocean and sea creatures in the wild. It also comes with being at one with nature and the sea, when I go sailing all my cares and worries go away. I’m currently working on a [story about a] walrus called Wally who is supposed to live in Antarctica. He somehow has managed to hitch a ride on an iceberg 2,500 miles away causing havoc along the way.

Q: What were your younger years like?

A: My younger years were lived in the south island of New Zealand in Picton. My father was a boat builder and chief editor at the local newspaper. As a child, our family would go sailing in the Marlborough sounds every weekend. This was where my passion for the sea started.

Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?

A: If you can dream it, you can do it. Follow your passion, never give up. Follow your dreams and your heart, and listen to your gut.

Q: What does feminism mean to you? 

A: Feminism to me is equality in both sexes—social, economic, and political.


I’m a “Kiwi” living in Australia.
