Meet the Boomettes - Sara
It's Tuesday so it must be time to meet another Boomette! Don't worry - you didn't miss one last week, we just took a tiny break. Let's crack into it with Sara Van Rooy!
Hi Sara! When you're not busy being a Boomette, who are you, and what do you do?
I'm a bubbly smiley person, currently contracting to a Govt department. When I'm not working you can find me volunteering at the SPCA, socialising, crafting, gaming, gardening, supporting the drum and bass music community, wining and dining or watching animated movies at home with my cat!
How did you feel when you were asked to model for me?
I was super excited and nervous! I never modeled before but wanted pushed myself out of my comfort zone and support my wonderful friend of course!
This was your second season as a Boomette - how did you find doing season two as an old pro compared to season one when everything was new?
For me the second season's shoot was much easier, once we had a wine and started shooting all of nerves went away. Having met most of the models before and fostering relationships with these awesome woman meant we were able to get to business. The second season had a new clothing item called the CORNELIA which is my middle name so was super excited to see it on the Boomettes and super honoured to be part of the brand!
What was your favourite piece of clothing from the collection?
From the entire collection my favourite is the DEMELZA in lilac. I own it and I love it! It's comfortable and makes me feel like a princess, plus getting compliments when i wear it makes me get warm fuzzies and gives me a chance to rave about Boom.
House of Boom is all about trying to be gooder in a not great world. To me, you embody that so well because you are always doing things for other people, and very specifically for me. How did you become such a considerate person?
I don't know how I became this way, I smile A LOT and just get so much joy from helping others. To be considerate you need to have empathy, respect, patience, manners and be intuitive of other people's needs. Some people might think my emotional side as a weakness but I think it's one of my greatest strengths!
Another thing I love about you is that you're always so willing to learn and grow in areas that you might not have previously had experience in. What are some tips for others to become better learners?
My thirst to learn new things couples with my wanting to help others. The more I do, the more I learn, the more I can help!
Curiosity and open mindedness are key! I spent a lot of time observing and thinking about how people's worlds intersect and what the impact of situations have on a group or individual.
Also don't be afraid to ask questions and get things wrong!
