My former hairdressing salon of 33 years is where l got to explore my craft and become a creative hairdresser, but every chat session developed me into a good listener. I learnt about myself and others and formed relationships with people from all walks of life.
During lockdown in 2020-2021, l decided to release what l had built up in my memory bank and publish my first book, ‘Unbosoming’. My writing helped me get through some difficult times when l was personally challenged with mental health issues. Releasing your stories, getting them off my chest, became my therapy.
Salon stories, observing what was happening around me and listening to what you told me, made me realise that nothing is forever.
At the end of 2022 l was not quite sure what my new platform would look like. Heading into 2023 I lay low and was thinking of where to next when I found myself navigating into the unknown and being given an opportunity to host ‘The Daily Mirror’, a weekly segment on RPP FM, Mornington Peninsula Radio.
It has been a work in progress, learning something that’s completely out of my comfort zone. Thanks to Brodie, my amazing mentor, l am now ready to put my training wheels on and get started.
‘The Daily Mirror’ in the month of May welcomes some wonderful people who I have met in my new community who also reside on the Mornington Peninsula.
