Babe n Brilliant Ep 10: Jenna Wortham

Jenna Wortham is many things - but she’s primarily known for her work as a writer for the NY Times.

There she writes mainly about technology and culture.

Prior to the Times, Jenna was a tech and culture reporter for Wired.com and a freelance writer for Wired magazine.

Her work has also appeared in Bust magazine, The Hairpin, Vogue, The Morning News, Fader and various other publications.

She is also the queen of side hustles.

From starting a zine celebrating women she admired, aptly titled GirlCrushZine to helping curate an Emoji Art show to co-histing a radio show called Heartline to a series about Sexting in the age of technology.

There’s nothing Jenna isn’t keen to explore in the digital realm.

Babe n Brilliant Ep 9: Ajak Deng

Ajak Deng is one of Australia’s most successful international runway models.

She’s graced the covers of many magazines including fashion bible Vogue and walked for every major designer from Chloe to Valentino and every one in between.

The 25 year old was born in what was then part of Sudan and is today known as South Sudan.

She was forced to flee the conflict there and ended up in Kenya before migrating to Australia with her family.

But there’s much more to her story than that.

She’s also quite the thrill seeker and hilarious too.

But despite dominating runways overseas and headlining major fashion campaigns, she’s still relatively unknown here in Australia.

Babe n Brilliant Ep 8: Yassmin Abdel-Magied

There’s very little that Yassmin Abdel-Magied hasn’t done yet.

She was named Queensland's Young Australian of the Year for 2015.

She’s a mechanical engineer, writer, social advocate, and a self-described petrol head.

At 16, she set up her own not for profit organisation Youth Without Borders – which aims to improve access to opportunity and enable young people to work for positive change in their communities.

She’s been named one of Australia’s most influential women, writes for various publications, shakes things up on the ABC’s popular Q&A program and regularly speaks around the country inspiring other young people to live life fully and with purpose.

She literally is the definition of an over achiever – in the best way possible, and the world is certainly a better place because of her enthusiasm when tackling some of the most challenging questions in our community.

And by the far has one of the coolest jobs in the world – working as an engineer on an offshore oil and gas rig.

She’s as bad ass as they come.

Babe n Brilliant Ep 7: Sarah Roberts

Sarah Roberts is a quadruple threat and a name to watch.

She’s an actress, singer, dancer and DJ, and wears all hats with the same enthusiasm and passion!

She has worked in film, television and theatre, both in Australia and overseas, with recent credits including the feature film Felony opposite Joel Edgerton, Tom Wilkinson, Jai Courtney and Melissa George.

Sarah also performs in a DJ duo called VAMP, which plays at venues and festivals around the world.

Babe n Brilliant Ep 6: Piera Gelardi

Piera Gelardi is a creative powerhouse - and she's just getting warmed up.

As the Executive Creative Director and co-founder of Refinery29, a digital media brand for young women that's grown significantly over the last decade.

There she oversees all things that make the site come to life visually — from branding and design to art direction, photography, video, and casting.

An entrepreneur from birth, Piera has always had new business ideas up her sleeve — from a zine called Team Rad: Let's Get Awesome, to a Kandy Katering business, to a card game called Hair She Blows.

She's based in New York.

Babe n Brilliant Ep 5: Hermione Underwood

Hermione Underwood lives a varied and truly inspiring life.

Many in Australia may know her for her brief stint on reality television, as well as her beautifully curated social media profiles.

But as you’ll find out shortly, she’s passionate about travel, style and entrepreneurialism and managed to create a very exciting career out of those passions.

She relocated from Sydney to London over a year ago, and runs two businesses.

The first, the H Collective, is a boutique brand development and creative communications agency.

The second, HemoineOlivia.com is where she gives us a glimpse into her fabulous life, with tips and musings on travel and style.
