Imagine combining a seventies hippy and an angel into one person, because that is what Mara Grams is.
As we skipped around meadows, hiding under trees (and in the back of my car) to avoid the rain and stuffing ourselves with garlic bread, I slowly became more and more enchanted with Mara. Her effortless smile and incredible taste in music won me over, and we shared our favourite things with each other.
She is more than just a festival queen, although that is a title I gladly bestow upon her, but she is also an absolute sweetheart.
Hey, I’m Mara 🙂
Home is between Sydney, Noosa and Brisbane. I originally moved to Sydney last year from Brisbane for uni, and I’m living here now, but my dad lives in Brisbane and my Mum lives in Noosa, so I’m stuck in between all three places somehow. They all feel like home for different reasons.
Describe yourself in 3 words
Spontaneous, Adventurous, Outgoing!
What are you doing at the moment? What do you want to be doing?
I’m studying Creative Direction and Styling at uni currently, and hopefully out of that I will eventually be styling photoshoots, taking photos and travelling.
Your spirit animal?
100% a Cat – I’ve been obsessed with them ever since I was little.
Something you’re dying to try is…
At the moment I really want to go skydiving ahaha! I’m actually super scared of it and think I would probably cry, but I still REALLY want to do it. Same as scuba diving.
If you could teleport anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
I would definitely go to Turkey! It’s one place I’ve been wanting to go for a while now. I just love everything about it. Their culture, the beautiful water and places to visit.
What keeps you sane?
Going to the beach keeps me sane. Whenever I just feel like chilling out on the weekend, that’s where I head with friends, it helps me to get away from everything for a while. Basically just going on fun adventures anywhere with friends is pretty great.
If you could change something about the world, what would it be?
Animal cruelty or poverty. Both are issues I’m really passionate about.
What’s something you’re afraid of?
The dark ahaha! Sounds super weird but I think when I was little I was told waayyy to many horror stories around the campfire, and now I’m scared being alone outside in the dark. I literally can’t watch a single horror movie…
What do you want to be remembered for?
I hope that I am remembered for just being a good person and helpful to those around me.
Words for everyone to live by?
BE KIND! Super simple but I think that it’s so important for everyone to be giving and kind to each other.
Also another one I always think about is to embrace change, I think that its so good to change things about your life so you don’t miss out on experiencing all the different things the world has to offer.
