Hey! I'm Ruby! I love food, travel, repurposing things out of recycled materials in my shed, music and skating. I am currently studying my Bachelor of Early Childhood Education and Care and whilst I am working as a preschool teacher.

I have lived all over Sydney my whole life, the last few years I have been living on the beautiful South Coast but have just moved back up to Sydney. I have a big fluffy ginger cat, an adorable mini sausage dog and an amazing partner. To say getting here was easy would not be the whole truth...going to an all girls catholic school in the eastern suburbs of Sydney with a principal who was openly anti-gay wasn't the easiest. I decided to come out after high school, when I was 17, which worked for me.

Fortunately, I was brought up amongst the LGBTQ community and attended Fair Day with my Brother, Mum and all of her queer friends from a young age. I feel as though I had created a over dramatised story in my head about coming out. It wasn't anything like the dismay I had worried about.

Since then I have met countless amazing people and get to share my time with the people I love knowing that I am being my most authentic self. Coming out isn't always easy and it certainly doesn't happen over night but I believe that it's better in the long run.
