Cr Georgina Oxley
Welcome to Episode 5 of Blossom For Each Day Podcast!
At only 25 years old, Cr Georgina Oxley is the Mayor of City of Kingston, one of Melbourne’s beautiful bayside cities that is known for its pristine beaches, cafes and facilities. Being a local resident myself, I began to notice her ability to resonate with the younger generation and women in the community, so of course, I wanted to have her on the Podcast for an authentic conversation.
You can hear her excitement and passion for all she does as she reflects on her years and experience in council, community and business. In 2016 Georgina was elected into local government, and two years later, at only 23 years old, she made history and was elected as the youngest female mayor in Australia! Incredible huh!? We discuss so many topics, from broad issues, to small, but impactful community programs she has initiated.
In addition to her impressive resume, she is also a Business Owner. She co-owns and operates ‘Designer Plants’ with her partner. A curated collection of artificial plants distributed to commercial & residential locations worldwide.
In our conversation we discuss…
- How she found her passion in politics
- What she is most proud of achieving in her role as Mayor of City of Kingston
- What there is to come in the City of Kingston
- The local business she co-owns & operates with her partner ‘Designer Plants’
- How she balances the duties of Mayor & Business Owner
- Her advice for anyone who wants to follow their passion
- & so much more!
