The bigger and better you become
This week I have a very special docobite to share from home in Sydney, Australia.
It features my mum.
At 23, many people can’t get their heads around the things I’ve managed to pull off, but when they meet my mum it starts to make a whole lot of sense.
I’m the proud daughter of the loving, creative and talented Gretel Killeen. And because she has always been my biggest supporter, I thought it was only right that one of the last docobites of the series should feature her and some of her ideological genius.
Sitting in our living room filming this interview, mum shared a story from when my brother and I were children that I had never heard before. Both of us in tears, she revealed yet another moment of perseverance, or in her own words, “Dealing with an obstacle is always going to be something you have to do, it’s how you do it that counts.”
I do hope my mother will offer you a chunk of inspiration, as she has been my great source of strength, galvanising my spirit, time and time again through out my life.
Without her, I would not have had the belief, nor the ability, to bring you each human story we have captured thus far.
The Big Smoke is proud to promote the adventures
of the 365 docobites crew
and will feature a “Stranger of the week” every Friday,
so check back each week to see
who you get to meet next!
About 365 docobites…
The 365 docobites team, Epiphany and Carl, are travelling across five continents for an entire year to introduce the 365 docobites community to a “stranger a day” via a vlog of short and shorter documentaries.
Each docobite will be as unique as the stranger it features, allowing their identity to drive the content. Whether we’re with a stranger for a moment or a day, 365 docobites will capture the essence of that time in their life, humorous or horrific, dramatic or delightful.
What do these people look like?
What do they think about?
What makes them laugh, cry, scream and shout?
What is life like for the strangers of the world?
