“Dream boldly for anything is possible.” – Gianna Lucas
When I was a little girl, my extended family always referred to me as ‘Little Miss Chatterbox‘. Why you say? Well I loved to talk. Years later, nothing’s changed.
The last seven years have seen me put my creative flair to good use whilst hosting shows and events within the media and communications industry.
Just in case you haven’t visited my ‘My Story’ page, I spent over four incredible years at Australia’s biggest community radio station, 89.9 LightFM. This Melbourne-based broadcaster is an affiliate of the Nine Network and has over one million monthly listeners. I produced the station’s award winning flagship show (Lucy & Kel for Breakfast) and also presented a variety of my own shows including the Saturday Night Party Mix and Best of Brekky. On top of my regular announcing roles, I presented the station’s morning traffic and weather reports. I also coordinated and presented live outside broadcasts for both 89.9 LightFM and 107.9 Life FM’s Arch D Radio in Adelaide. You can read more about this here.
I’m a podcast fanatic. During 2015 I co-hosted a weekly podcast called Half Way Round, alongside Hit Network Dubbo Breakfast Announcer, Jimi Love. The podcast was recorded in both London, UK and Melbourne, Australia.
By far my greatest love is interviewing – I just adore it. It’s a wonderful way to learn about an individual’s personal story on a deep level, whilst uncovering their passionate perspective on a variety of topics.
In April 2017 I launched my own inspo show for young women. I dubbed it The Promenade With Me Podcast. The podcast has grown exponentially and now has four regular show themes. 2018 will see the show expand into an even larger network, so #watchthisspace! To discover the full story behind The Promenade With Me Podcast, you can hear its back story by tuning into my first episode.
Got a question you’d love answered or a topic you’d like me to cover on The Promenade With Me Podcast? Have a collaboration idea? Perhaps you have an interviewee in mind? I’d love to hear from you!
My greatest desire is to empower others through sharing my story and insights. And my #1 goal is to encourage youth to ‘Dream BIG and boldly’! Because when you allow yourself the opportunity to do so, you’ll soon realise that you truly have the talent, passion and drive to do all that you set your mind to.
Since September 2017 I have been invited to speak at countless events and workshops, which has since opened up new opportunities. In January 2018 I became an Educator at Beautiful Minds. I also run numerous workshops and seminars at events, schools and retreats for young women, teen girls and pre-teen girls. Head here for more info.
My hope is that through me sharing my own insights and tumultuous yet empowering journey, I can inspire others to believe in their capabilities, embrace their uniqueness and pursue their dreams.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
