Do you know your Dosha? Thanks to @ele4orcejewellery I discovered I’m a Vata type connected to the element of air. Air is constantly in motion, even when you can’t see it and I feel like that’s symbolic of how I live my life! To reflect my Ayurvedic personality, I chose this stunning white diamond to bring me strength and courage to reach my goals.

– You’ve had an incredible career from investment banking to full time creator & entrepreneur. Tell us about it!
Up until 4 years ago, my life was very different. I had a successful career in investment banking. Whilst on the outside, many would have deemed my work in the corporate world to be a success, on the inside, it didn’t fulfill me and I felt discontent. I was burnt out and decided to explore something new.
Becoming an entrepreneur with a popular social media platform where I can keep others inspired and help them to become their best self has improved my happiness immeasurably. It has allowed me to build my career around my passions and I feel like I am empowering others – I truly love my job! Since I left the investment bank, I have co-founded a Media & PR company called ‘Change Global Media’, coached at Female Entrepreneurs Worldwide, spoken at many events for empowering women, launching my own premium NAD+ supplement label, and I chair a charity called Inspiring Girls Australia. It’s been such a whirlwind and I love that every day brings something new.
The best thing I have done for myself is to build a career around my passion, and now I truly enjoy my work life everyday.
– Which was your result from the DOSHA test?
I am predominantly Vata Air and Ether.
– How do you think it reflects your personality, do you see this element within yourself?
The DOSHA test has totally reflected my personality and characteristics. ‘Vata people are usually described as slender, energetic, and creative” – this is hitting the nail on the head. I have always been very energetic, adventurous and I love to explore new ventures and rise up to challenges. As an influencer, I can often see my creative side during the content creation and I’m also keen to take on new challenging projects and campaigns. It says Vata people’s strength is’ multitasked, kind-hearted, flexible’ and those totally tick my boxes.
In addition to that, I’m also a sun-chaser (a typical trait for Vata). Before COVID19, I used to fly more than 50 flights a year and I loved flying to sunny and tropical destinations. Warmer weather energizes me and it’s very uplifting.
– What is your favourite item from Ele4orce and how does it make you feel each time you wear it?
Since COVID19, I haven’t been able to travel much and traveling used to be the fuel that energized me and kept me inspired and motivated toward my long term goal, so I chose a stone that will empower me – diamond.
My favourite pieces are the 18ct Gold Balance Sylph Necklace featuring 7 natural white diamonds with the matching earrings.
I wear them almost every day now, they are very classy and almost can match with any styles of outfits.
I feel empowered by Balance Sylph Necklace and earrings throughout the name, and even during the lockdown days, I have been very productive and uplifted.
– If you could give one piece of advice to someone looking to invest in their first high-end jewellery item, what would it be and why?
High-end jewellery is an investment that will last for a lifetime. I would recommend picking something timeless that is also great quality. This way you can even pass down from generation to generation.
In addition to that, I would suggest looking into pieces that are unique and resonate with you. Don’t search for what’s trending out, look for something that truly represents you, so it will elevate your personality and style.
