    ‘It’s a great challenge. It’s a mental, physical and social challenge, but for me, it was a way to extend my platform to people that don’t know me,’ the 36-year-old continued.

    With her work as a conservationist, Laura is leading the charge as an advocate and ambassador for change.

    ‘Being an influencer, it means that you need to influence for good, and if I can use my powers for good and get people thinking about what they can do each and every day to make the world a better place, then that’s what I want to be doing,’ she said.

    As a model with 15 years’ experience, Laura has had to adapt to the new digital age.

    ‘I think Instagram can be a blessing and a curse,’ she said.

    ‘It can be great for spreading messages and seeing more diversity within people in body shapes and everything,’ she added.

    ‘It also gives people an easy way to compare themselves to others.’

    Laura said she uses social media to spread positivity, awareness and diversity.

    ‘I want to get people to start thinking about what they actually look like and realize that they can make a difference to the world, regardless of what dress size they are,’ she said.

    Meanwhile, Laura admitted she’s been passionate about wanting to protect Australia’s oceans since becoming a member of her local surf life saving at age five. 

    ‘I grew up in Sydney on the coast, so I’ve always had a strong connection to our oceans,’ she explained.

    ‘I was a member of surf club since the age of five and I studied marine biology, so for me having that physical connection with our oceans, but also having an education that has grown into an absolute passion for what’s beneath the surface.’

    The environmentalist has now teamed up with the Ocean Impact Organisation and HP as an ambassador for the Generation Impact Incubator, which gives young Aussies the chance to bring their ocean-saving ideas to life.

    ‘It’s an absolute natural fit for me to come on board with HP to launch this incubator to get people really thinking about solutions for our oceans,’ she said.

    ‘The incubator we’ll be doing is getting people curious and thinking about the real-world solution to the biggest environmental issues that our world faces.’
