Tell us about what you do?

I will probably be working that out forever! At the moment, I’m majoring in Literature and Performance at Sydney University and doing comedy and acting on the side.

How did you get into acting / comedy?

A desperate need for attention probably. I had an agent from a young age but that wasn’t a Dakota Fanning situation. I’m originally from Wollongong, so things kicked off when I signed with Marquee Management and moved to Sydney after high school. I played ‘Shan’ in a short film in 2014 called ‘Shan and Kate’ – directed by Zoe Rae and written and produced by Bronte Jovevski, and I remember how much they just owned any room they were in and I was like, ‘I need to be as funny as these women’. I teamed up with two of my closest friends (Victoria Zerbst and Jess Bush) and formed a sketch group called Freudian Nip. I always feel really giddy after I see them, like I just had a hot date. They are fearless and funny and we have the most riotous times. After we did our first couple shows, this whole world of women and comedy has opened up and I have an epiphany every day about how good comedy is in this city.

Tell us about what you do.

I’m a florist, I run a shop called Muck where I curate products and do floristry out of my shop.

When did you first start working with flowers?

About 4 years ago. I was working as a set builder, and then I started assisting a floral stylist. I started taking days off work to work for her, and that's when I realised that something was happening. Finally when I moved to New York I decided to focus just on flowers.

Sara Beygi

Los Angeles, United States.

What do you do?

I'm a rapper and a model.

What made you want to start rapping?

Fun phrases and sentences would randomly come to mind, so I typed them up as notes and saved them. I didn't really plan on doing anything with it at the time, I just thought it would be a good idea to keep them and get some laughs from the ridiculous applesauce that my mind comes up with.

What do you do and where are your from?

I take photographs and I am from a small village in Germany.

How did you get into photography?

When I was 8 years old my grandfather gave me his old film camera and I took off and photographed my little sister and my best friend in matching outfits. Unfortunately the camera broke and it took me several years to pick one up again but I still love those photos to this day.

Auckland, New Zealand.

Tell us about what you do.

I am in my third year of a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Elam.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Relax, read magazines, go to brunch, research for my work, annoy my friends and boyfriend. The usual! However I don't really like the term spare time, I think you give your energy where it's needed most at that certain point in time.
