This is the raw story of the ups, downs, and ups of Mia Freedman, as told by Mia Freedman. Arguably one of Australia’s most consistently influential people through her work in the media, you will discover the person behind the persona in this episode of Get a Freakin’ Life.
Mia started working in the women’s magazine industry at age 19, and in 2003, after seven years of hard work including editing 100 issues of Cosmopolitan magazine, Mia became the Editor-In-Chief of Cosmopolitan, Cleo and Dolly. Mia then moved the channel 9 network in Australia and in 2009 was appointed Chair of the Federal Government’s National Body Image Advisory Group.
Perhaps her most personal project to date is the mamamia blog, which Mia started in 2007 and now has an editorial team of 14 women of all ages and backgrounds, plus over 300 contributors from ordinary women in the community, and including Hollywood star Toni Collette and former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
Talk about gettin’ a freakin’ life — you’ll love this episode with Mia because it’s inspiring, honest, and real.
