Bronwyn is an exceptionally gentle and relentlessly kind woman who resides in the small seaside city of Perth, Australia. She is a woman that I have loved dearly for the past two decades of my life, and will continue to do so for decades to come.
When you spend time with Bronwyn you are instantly met with a smile and a feeling of her genuine warmth and openness. She leaves you feeling as though you're in the presence of something more than human, something angelic.
Bronwyn founded Mettle Women over a year ago, and when we began our new project 'More than Skin Deep', focusing on the magical and endlessly diverse variety of women that represent the essence of IMBIBE - I knew I had to reach out to Bronwyn to be involved.
Mettle Women is an organisation founded early in 2019 by Bronwyn and her younger sister, Alesha, as a way to ensure survivors of domestic violence were safe, supported and empowered to be independent, ultimately preventing them returning to homelessness or to their abuser.
Mettle is an ethical gift delivery service employing women who experience homelessness due to domestic and family violence. They equip survivors of domestic and family violence with the skills, confidence, and financial security required to secure and maintain employment, and in turn, safe and stable housing.
