Maria Thattil joins us this episode, she's a speaker, writer, advocate, and ... Miss Universe Australia. Maria doesn't mirror the 'blonde beach waves' bombshell Australian stereotype - she's Indian-Australian, with darker skin and she wouldn't meet the height requirements in many countries for Miss Universe. She's changed the game in beauty - why SHOULD her height or skin colour stop her from being a role model to young Australians? It was a pleasure to listen and learn from her and I hope you enjoy it too.
PS. I made her cry and I think I'm ready to retire now xx
