Hello! Pleased to meet you! I'm Renata...
I am a fitness instructor . Fitness is my passion. Changing the world is my other passion! I trained Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for a short time. In my teens I did Karate, cycling and a lot of horse riding, mainly in the bushland. But now as an advocate for animal rights, I don't believe in horse riding anymore. It was however, the source of my strong connection with animals.
I live in the beautiful, rugged outback of central Australia. Why do I love it here? The clean air, community living, family, no commuting, happy no-stress lifestyle, red sand, the view of forever & the vast sky filled with stars at night.
I was once a tour guide for Adventure Tours Australia camping under the stars & driving travellers to hike Uluru, Kata Tjuta & Kings Canyon. Although I've never worked so hard in all my life, it was loads of fun! Before guiding I used to work at the IMAX Theatre in Darling Harbour Sydney (biggest cinema in the world!) -it was great! Before that, I worked as an architecture photographer's assistant in Sydney and surf photography in Hawaii. Fantastic!
I live with my two gorgeous boys 6 and 8, and a handsome husky/shepherd dog.
I am a vegan peace activist. I believe that almost all of our problems on our planet are created by our mentality of violence & domination over others. We justify it by discriminating against race, class or species. All forms of violence are connected so a great place to start is with ourselves. The solution I use is peaceful, non confronting public education such as hosting street stalls, free food, talks & podcasting through my organisation the Alice Springs Vegan Society. It's wonderful because it works!
I love listening to podcasts and audiobooks. I rarely watch television or the news.
I believe in family and community, loyalty and love. I am an atheist and humanist.
I believe in family and community, loyalty & love. I am an atheist & humanist (basically being a good person!). I enjoy baking & healthy vegan cuisine. I never drink alcohol, coke or coffee to keep myself healthy. I have an outgoing, friendly & confident personality. You don't have to be vegan or not drink but maybe you might be inspired...
I have an outgoing and confident personality. People describe me as a passionate and peaceful person. :)
How about you?
I hope you have a wonderful evening/day.
