Introducing #ParisGeorgiaMuse Roxie Mohebbi. Roxie moves forward with intention - her purpose and work are anchored with her deeply rooted values and the generational sacrifice that came before her. Born in Tehran, Iran, Roxie moved to New Zealand at five years old through a refugee programme. On her journey she explains, “how it has been my greatest barrier yet my greatest pillar at the same time. An unexplainable, beautiful, terrifying, purposeful, complicated driving force in my life. Something that I wish I could be different yet would never change."
Initially a practicing ICU nurse, Roxie now works as an Actor. A gentle nod to her younger self, Roxie uses her craft to rewrite standards and aims to make space for those who would not otherwise see themselves represented. Off the screen, Roxie is a leader and an advocate, and uses her platform to amplify voices and messages that may otherwise remain under the surface. Articulate, resilient, and powerful. Roxie is a #ParisGeorgiaMuse for her ability to harness hardship and use it as a source of strength. She has continued to stay impervious to the challenges presented to her and has an innate strength we are enamoured by.
When we asked Roxie who her muse was, she explained “to put it simply, the women of Iran. Especially my Maman, who taught me how to be a rebel. Women. Life. Freedom”
