Last week my nine-year-old had to do a speech at school. As she’s not one to court the limelight, I knew she’d be nervous so I was impressed with how conscientiously she was preparing in advance. We did many run-throughs beforehand and gradually she appeared to be finding her groove. I even detected a note of enjoyment in her voice. So it was with great excitement that I hurried home the next night to hear how she’d got on. I found her furiously applying crayons to paper and refusing to meet my eye. “How’d it go?” I asked tentatively. Turns out, not good. I’d hoped to find her on a high from having achieved something difficult and instead she was deflated. “Well, all that matters is that you did it,”…

Winning letter absolutely loved reading the story on I Stacey Beatson, what an incredible woman! All children need love and nurturing, and Stacey is an example of how this can come from those outside of the child’s biological family. She does such a great job of explaining how foster families play an incredibly important role in the lives of foster kids, and how enriching the entire experience can be for all involved. She seems like such a beautiful woman inside and out, and I’ll readily admit to having shed a few tears reading her story. These are the kinds of stories that make you think deeply, and feel all the feels. I am so glad I came across it. Keep sharing these wonderful stories about inspiring women – I’ll be sure…

Back in the 1970s, three women with great hair graduated from the police academy and, recruited by a mystery man named Charles Townsend, became the crime-fighting trio known as Charlie’s Angels. Such was their impact on our TV watching – and hairstyles – that the franchise was brought to the big screen in 2000, and now, a new cast of kick-ass angels has come together in the form of Naomi Scott, Kristen Stewart and Ella Balinska for a feminist reboot of the film, in theatres November 1. 2 THE BOOK... Kept secret for the past 70 years, Renia’s Diary: A Young Girl’s Life in the Shadow of the Holocaust, can finally be told. A journal writer from the age of 15, Renia lived in Przemysl in Poland during…

My typical week... I don’t have a routine except when I’m working. Then I am told what time to get up, what I’m wearing, when to eat and go home. I’m a slave to the schedule, but I love it. If I could live off one food, it would be… I love the taste of toasted nori. I would prefer seaweed to be the food of the future, rather than crickets. I used to feed crickets to the lizards my little boys had when they were growing up in Los Angeles. It was disgusting to have to feed the food to the lizards –and the smell made me gag. To this day, cricket bread makes my stomach turn. My hidden talent is… Whistling. My dad was a whistler and I adored him, so I guess…
