Vanessa Marian


It was a year of running her own start-up small business, signing as a principle dancer for an opera and moving cities for Vanessa. So what’s a cheeky extra 8 hours (4 in the morning before work and 4 at night before bed) towards a festival that isn’t trying to make a cent of profit?

For Vanessa it was about the message. Yes the idea of inspiring other people to fear less, live more tickled her fancy but living out this very motto alongside a team of people who were putting it all on the line in the name of humanity rocked her socks.
