TEA WITH JULES – Rabia Siddique on Equal Justice PART 1

 

Continuing along with our brave series on Tea with Jules, I could not go past the story of my next guest. As we sat and shared our tea, I was more and more taken with her tale of courage, determination and passion. Rabia Siddique begins her story in suburban Perth growing up as a Muslim. Her life changed forever when she became the victim of abuse and decided at a very early that she wanted to dedicate herself to helping others access justice in a way that she wasn’t able to as a little girl.

TEA WITH JULES – Alex Perilli on faith, coming out and finding himself.

Alex Perilli

My friend of over 3 decades, Alex Perilli joins me for this deeply connected conversation today. As some of you know about me, I grew up in a Pentecostal church in Adelaide. It’s a place that I hold very dear to me. It’s a place that helped mould me into the human I am today. The environment set me up with strong values and morals and a connection with God that I cherish and call upon daily. For me, it was a wonderfully positive experience where I made life long friends and even met my future husband!

It is in this church that I met Alex. A life of the party, talented and all round awesome guy. He is magnetic, kind, thoughtful and fun. We were instant friends (albeit – we were 5!), and have remained close since then. Unbeknownst to myself and our close knit community of friends, Alex was in a battle we never saw – a struggle with his sexuality.

Carla Zampatti on Tea with Jules THE PODCAST, The Chronicles

To say it was an honour to have Carla Zampatti for tea is an understatement. With 50 years of fashion under her belt, Carla is the authority on style. Her designs transcend age and era. She is equally cool as she is elegant. To not throw this episode back as a Tea with Jules THE PODCAST, The Chronicles – would be a fashion crime!

Katherine Sabbath on TEA WITH JULES THE PODCAST, the Chronicles

I recorded this episode of Tea with Jules in September 2017, but it is so worth the revisit!

The sweetest episode of Tea with Jules yet! I first met Katherine Sabbath when I was hosting an event for Pandora, and Katherine was commissioned to make the yummy desserts. We chatted, I loved her immediately, I ate the cake and that was it!

Fwwends – awww!

Jaynie Johnson on raising a child with additional needs and letting love rule

Mother of 3 beautiful children and Founder and Director of Blacklist Jaynie Johnson and her husband, Nate started the business 11 years ago and have built a loyal following in the creative space. I love their description of what they do – ‘We create art. By dreamers, for dreamers.’ Make sure you check out their work.

I first met Janie a few years ago and I was struck by her calm and positive nature. She’s one of those people who seem to glow from the inside out. The more I got and get to know her, the more impressive she becomes – not only because she oozes coolness, but she has a strength and wisdom that is rare. When Jaynie and Nate became pregnant with their second child Dare, they were to discover at birth that he was born with down syndrome. I’ll leave it to Jaynie to tell the unfolding of life after Dare, but I think you will agree with me that this family know how to do family right. Their goal is to raise their kids to be resilient, kind and loving humans, to show them that anything is possible in life, no matter what the circumstance.

My Vision Board Inspiration

 

I’m naturally a dreamer but never really felt the need for a vision board. That all changed after I met psychology student, Chelsea Pottenger. I was so inspired by our chat that I not only went away and made my own, I had to make this video and share my journey with you. Watch it in full, below.
