Before this interview, as I research Miranda Kerr (online), two common themes about the modelturned-entrepreneur emerge. The first focuses on her appearance—specifically skin that would make a baby jealous (we now have her secret but more on that later). The second highlights how she is always radiating kindness ‘with’, and I quote, ‘not a mean bone in her body.’ Both observations turn out to be overwhelmingly true. As we sit down for our cross continental video interview, the beauty mogul admits that it’s a conscious effort to stay positive. “I want to be a light in this world. When I was a child, my mother embroidered this onto my pillow. From day one, I always felt like hopefully, I can uplift someone, you know, through them having any interaction with me.”

Miranda began her modelling career at the tender age of 13 and was catapulted to global fame soon after. The world seemed to have Miranda fever—from becoming Australia’s first and only Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2007 to working with fashion houses such as Prada, Chanel and Christian Dior, you couldn’t look anywhere without seeing her familiar light eyes and angelic face.

KORA CALLING

Modelling however, was always going to be a stepping stone to a grander plan at play. “It was something I enjoyed, but I knew it was a short-lived job. I continued to save my money to be able to invest in my future, depending on what it is I wanted to do.” Ultimately, she found her calling in KORA Organics—an award-winning, certified organic skincare brand born in 2009, fuelled by her entrepreneurial spirit, passion for holistic living and years of knowledge about health and nutrition. “I was talking to a friend of mine back in 2006 about the fact that I was eating certified organic but I couldn’t find a single certified organic skincare brand. Through a common connection, I got in touch with a laboratory I could work with [to bring my vision to life] and the rest is history.”
