Gigi Dooley - Sydney , Nsw Australia Interviewed by Zoe D’Angelo Issue 20 Inspiring Teens Magazine
How did you become interested in women empowerment? Why did you start your Youtube channel around this idea? I’ve always had many powerful female role models in my life, and I aspire to help those who may not have these leaders in their lives! I’m saying this, Youtube is such a great way to reach out to girls my age and relate and empower them!
What is it like living in Sydney? Have you ever been to America? I adore living in Sydney! It’s such a multicultural society and I love the vibes! I’ve never been to America, but I would so love to go ASAP!
Do you have any family traditions that are specific to you and your life in Sydney? My family are very much Greek and so we eat, speak, and live very ethnically! I love it so much and it is so easy to embrace this when I am constantly surrounded by so many diverse cultures. Have you ever seen a kangaroo? Yep haha! Not as often as you may think though.... probably only about five times in my life!
What is one thing you want more people to know about you? Why? I am not some crazy smart teen prodigy- I am literally just another 15 year old girl! I am no better than anyone else and that will always stay the same!!!
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be where you are today? Positivity and resilience is so important. Trust your gut and manifest love and happiness- that’s the secret to living your best life!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years what are your plans for the future? I would love to make a career out of YouTube, but if that doesn’t work out, I’m looking to possibly do a degree in philosophy or journalism!
What about you inspires others/why do you think you are inspiring? I think people deem me ‘inspiring’ because I am great at communicating all the things that float around my mind at such an early age. It all comes down to paying attention to what’s going around you and communicating that in the most authentic way you can!!
Pizza or Tacos? Soda or Water? Cats or Dogs? Tacos, water, and both!!!!
Things on your bucket list: 0. Travel around Greece by myself after I graduate 0. Become a UN youth volunteer. 0. Own my own business/ head my own organization!
