What is the best part of your job?
For a little girl who was constantly told not to speak up, the best part of my job has been the opportunity to be paid to explore the world, ask questions and to hold power to account.
If you could give one piece of advice to yourself at the start of your career what would it be?
Positive psychology and reconciling your traumas is as vital to success as job skills, contacts and experience. Don’t underestimate how powerful healing and self-belief are to your journey, especially if you were raised in a limiting, patriarchal environment.
What is one act of kindness that you will remember forever?
My high school teacher, Curry Leslie, once a high-flying television producer who worked with internationally known names, putting aside an entire school day to talk to me about the problems I was having at home. That day changed the course of my life by acknowledging my truth, giving me both a career and life mentor and arming me with the skills to fight my corner.
What is your favourite quote?
Bloom where you are planted.
If you could invite two people to dinner (dead or alive!) who would they be and why?
Comedienne Lilly Singh and Chef Asma Khan because, well what’s better than great food and great laughs? Lilly has been making me laugh for more than a decade and it’s absolutely thrilling to see her hosting mainstream network TV in the US. It shows how far the US has come in terms of authentic mainstream representation. And Asma Khan because she is also clearly warm, funny, irreverent and authentic, but also because on this side of the Atlantic, Asma has redefined both representation and corporate practice. I can’t think of anything I’d love more than to laugh with women who share my journey and to be inspired by their own creativity, perseverance and success.
