Moana Hope ‘I had no idea what was happening’
Play • 43 min

Moana Hope is unashamedly herself. The AFLW player, author, media personality, and mother says it exactly how it is. While she features in Who Magazine’s list of Sexiest People, Moana is also a proud advocate for Body confidence and isn't afraid to speak out against sexism.

In this episode Jess and Moana dig deep on where she gets her resilience, the lesson from her dads passing that has shaped who she is, and the confronting challenges that came with childbirth.

As you’ll hear, this Powerhouse of Women's football knows what it takes to be a strong woman and will do anything to protect her family, including wife Isabella, sister Vinny, and children Svea and Ahi.

If you’d like to join Moana, and other famous women including Emily Ratajkowski and Amy Sheppard, who are turning up the volume on body positivity and shifting the self-love conversation. Head to BODfest for either virtual or in person tickets.
