As the year nears to an end and all our resolutions for 2013 gather speed, one question at Stella has been about our health and happiness So, we’ve been talking to inspiring women who see fitness as a lifestyle and wellbeing as a way of life.
Inside this issue read about the Tere-Apisah sisters from Papua New Guinea, who have won athletic scholarships for tennis to study in Atlanta, in The United States, and the four female volleyball role models from Vanuatu, competing internationally and challenging the stereotypes of Melanesian women in sport. Robyn writes about the importance of sleep for our health and well-being and Mere Sovick speaks to the first Melanesian to contest in the Miss World Australia pageant, Miss Veniana Natekuru, and what that means for new interpretations of beauty.
Among all the other goodness, we also introduce our new pastry chef from the Solomon Islands, Izzy Walton, and speak to (and learn some life lessons from) Papua New Guinea’s newest movie star, Xzannjah about her experiences on set for Mister Pip with an award-winning cast and crew.
Enjoy yourselves, enjoy life.
