Extraordinary Lives - Victoria Bennett


I’m Victoria, originally from the UK but I’ve been living in Australia and Indonesia for the last two years. When I started my travels, I said to myself that upon returning home I didn’t want to fall back into old habits, go back to the office job, sleep in, return to a negative outlook on life; Travelling gave me the freedom and opportunity to create my own career path, and I now work online as an English Teacher, a Freelance writer and a Content Creator. I love being busy with work, I love connecting with like-minded people and I’m really passionate about working with small, sustainable and ethical businesses.

I made the switch from a flat white to Matcha upon returning back to the UK. It was an easy switch for me as I had experienced the worst anxiety from consuming too much coffee over the last 2 years; it wasn’t serving my body and so I wanted a cleaner alternative. I came across OMG matcha tea and I absolutely love the quality, the taste, the sustained energy, and best of all NO caffeine crash! I like to prepare my AAA grade Matcha into a latte, poured over Oat milk with a dash of coconut oil.

The OMGTea 60 Second Interview

1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?

For both my mind and body to be in complete harmony.

2. Do you live to work or work to live?

If you would’ve asked me this a couple of years ago, I would’ve definitely said I work to live, you know the score, straight out of University and into a corporate job, this was what I thought at that time was the perfect lifestyle.

Fast forward a couple of years, since being away from home, travelling and experiencing new cultures whilst connecting with like-minded individual’s, I can say I absolutely love my new career path.

3. What one thing are you most passionate about?

Healing through plant-medicine, and the ability to heal naturally, to take control and responsibility for your own health, body and mind.

Oh, and my morning Matcha ritual, I cannot go a day without this. It has been part of my healing journey for sure.

4. What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Travelling 100%. It builds tremendous character and allows you to understand the vastness of people. You are immersed into a country that is unfamiliar and can be uncomfortable, you grow to understand different culture and background, and you become more open and receiving to this. It gives you a better perspective on life.

5. Who's the person you would most like to share a cup of matcha with and why?

David Attenborough.

Need I say why? To give him a great big hug and say thank you for all the work he has done throughout his career, and for never giving up on us.

6. What is the best piece of advice you could give someone?

Follow your heart, don’t do anything to please anybody else. Listen to your body, it is never wrong. Trust your intuition and talk to people if you need help.

7. If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?

I have been on a personal journey of healing for some time, and I would love the ability to heal others through techniques I have adopted, whilst also healing our Earth to allow for a healthy & prosperous future for us all.

8. What is your motto?

Don’t adapt to the energy of the room. Influence the energy in the room.
