Q & A with LuLu
What makes you an Independent Spirit?
I’m ferocious, entertaining, exciting, full of energy and little but large. I love the adrenaline of my sport and I’m always pushing the boundaries. It takes me down the road less travelled and I love skipping to the beat of my own drum. I’m also hard to read which I love.
What do you love to do?
I got the nickname Bang Bang LuLu because every time you land a trick in skateboarding, it’s called ‘bangers’ and I have landed many tricks! I do lots of training in my down time which helps me clear my head. I love living on the coast because everyone is really chilled out and I love Freo for the quirky vibe. I sometimes hit the drums too.
What does the future hold for you?
It takes a lot of passion to do what I’ve done, and without the passion and vision you’ll have nothing to drive you. I hope to one day run a great company that supports other upcoming female athletes and teaches them to find their passion, drive their passion and live their life as a happy spirit.
Everyone needs to remember to stop and have fun, be grateful for life and enjoy life. From there, you can succeed at anything.
What’s one of your biggest learnings?
Life has its ups and downs, challenges and adversities but when we become aligned with our values and passions we can turn things around and do the unthinkable. Anything is possible.
