Brodie. All I really need to say is shes Australian and you would fall in love with her instantly. Lets face it…Aussies just have it like that don’t they ? Along with that amazing accent, she also has the greatest laugh and an incredibly mellow personality. Shes just the kind of girl you like instantly, and its true …I did !
I spent an amazing day down at the beach with Brodie and her baby girl and had an absolute BLAST. We literally lost track of time and stayed until the sun went down, just playing with her daughter and talking about her life as a PILOT.
You really must read this interview . I’ve met a lot of people in my life, but I cant say I have ever met a female pilot before. Talk about inspiring ! Scroll down, enjoy the pics and go get inspired by Brodie !
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING ? WHAT ARE YOU TRAINED IN?
“I am a military pilot.”
WHAT FEMALE INSPIRES YOU ? WHY?
“I still think the female that inspires me most is my mum although I don’t feel as though I need to have a female inspiration. In my line of work I am exposed to a lot of males who inspire me. They inspire me to work harder, to show courage, to be a leader, to admit my mistakes, correct them, learn from them and move on, and most of all to be myself. Being a female brings a different perspective and set of attributes to the table. In the majority of cases this is a good thing.”
WHAT FEMALE INSPIRED YOU MOST AS A CHILD ?
” MY MUM. Although I very rarely showed it as a stubborn child, my mum has been my biggest inspiration. Throughout my childhood she worked tirelessly to give me an upbringing where I was able to make my own decisions, good or bad, and learn from the outcomes. She taught me how to be independent, strong and motivated. I can attribute all my successes in life to lessons that I have learned from her. ”
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST DREAM ?
“I am living it. My job is my hobby and I have just started a family with Ben, whom I love.”
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT ?
“My greatest accomplishment is creating/starting a family.”
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST FEAR ?
DO YOU HAVE A CAUSE YOU SPEAK UP FOR?
“Last year I joined Bike the US for MS in their ride of the Pacific Coast. The journey started in Seattle and finished in San Diego. The five weeks that it took was five weeks I will never forget! Not only do you raise money for a fantastic organisation and a worthy cause but you also have an experience that I would consider a holiday, a challenge and a time of self-reflection.”
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR CHILD ?
“I love how inquisitive Madison is. She is constantly watching the world around her and trying to absorb as much as she can.”
WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO DO DIFFERENTLY FOR MADISON COMPARED TO HOW YOU WERE RAISED ?
” Nothing. I can only strive to give Madison the upbringing and opportunities that my mum made sure my sisters and I received. ”
WHAT DO YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU ?
” That I truly believe it is what you don’t do that you will end up regretting the most”
TELL US ABOUT RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS IN YOUR LIFE ?
“I love when people passing you by simply say hello or smile. I always try to do this. Happiness is contagious, and I am always thankful to the people who make me smile in return for passing it on.”
( i could not agree more Brodie ! )
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST ADVICE TO THE YOUNG FEMALES OF TODAY ?
“You have to create your own opportunities.”
WHATS YOUR STATEMENT ?
” Women like men should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others. (Amelia Earhart)”
