Piha Brand Ambassador – Alyssa

A very creative soul –

I act, write music & sing, I draw and I garden. I don’t do very well if i’m not able to connect with my surroundings on a regular basis and by that I mean being in the water or outside to feel the wind and hear the cicadas . Most girls spent their time at malls growing up I was walking barefoot through the forestry that surrounded our house and planning gardens or writing little songs on my piano .

The ocean is a very special place –

For me it is one of the only places where I feel completely at peace, which didn’t always used to be that way. We grew up near a lake and I was terrified of waves for a very long time! I had to fight to get over my fear of the ocean and in the process of overcoming that fear I found a home. For me as I travel a lot I can dive in to any ocean any where in the world and feel my sense of calm and belonging.

I also feel the same way about gardens, learning how to create sustainable food options and growing things from nothing makes my heart soar. Now I also incorporate meditation in to my daily habits because I’ve found that’s another thing that works well to keep me in a calm happy flow state.

Advocate Of Real Beauty

I suffered from a fairly bad eating disorder growing up it lasted around 8-10 years, and suffer from stage 4  endometriosis. With that came a lot of anxiety so I’ve learned to find daily ways to keep myself in check and to make sure I’m at my best. That’s also the reason that I don’t photoshop my images online, because I don’t want to be a part of a society that perpetuates perfection. I’d rather be imperfect and figure out ways to love myself!

kindness compassion and empathy

I believe that kindness compassion and empathy are the keys to a happy healthy life. I am also fond of a 30 second dance party where ever the urge hits! x
