Meet The Melons | Ali

Monday 20th August

The lovely Ali, our resident barista/yogi/superstar answered all our burning questions about what inspires her, what keeps her motivated, what we’d be surprised to know and what her secret guilty please is… we think it’s a great one! Read all her answers below or stop by Willis St anytime for a chat.

From my mistakes, I have learnt:

  • Say yes to everything, deal with consequences later.

My most used emoji is:

Wake up time:
