As a Melbourne headshot photographer I come across some incredible women. I created this blog category to show them off and the photos we make together. I sat down with Kirsty and asked her these 15 questions:
Kirsty Young, Commercial Property Executive.
Frizzy Izzy. Mostly in reference to what happens to my hair when it gets wet!
Back in the day when I was a teen it was trendy to wear a long-sleeved polo shirt (called a ‘grandpa shirt’) backwards – collar and buttons facing the back. I wore it with a 6 inch wide elastic ‘cinch belt’ and a frilly gingham ‘ra-ra’ skirt. Unless you’re around my vintage that won’t make any sense. Trust me it was not a good look.
Yes please! A large home with spectacular views.
I have a vulnerable child being harassed at school. Sorry I know that’s deep but it’s not easy.
You can stop pouring that French champagne now please.
Drivers who deliberately close the gap so you can’t merge.
Oooh nothing. I’m a really good sleeper.
Mentoring new starters or strugglers and watching them take off in their own careers. It’s like nursing a bird with a broken wing then watching it fly (not that I’ve ever done that, I’m kind of scared of birds….but I can imagine!)
Never underestimate the value of preparation or in the words of Louis Pasteur “chance favours the prepared mind”.
Making a mistake in a spreadsheet that completely changed a large deal from a good opportunity to a bad one; and finding out after it had been presented to the investment committee. Ouch.
I have a mint green cotton cardigan I purchased in London in 2002. Nothing fancy but it’s a great Sunday slouchy thing, and I think I’m so attached to it because of the fond memories it holds.
Anything that begins with ‘I can’t…’
I’m going with the traditional – fireman, policeman. My work bestie & I always used to make sure we were around for the fire evacuations lol!
