6 Questions with Hannah Tan

6 Questions with Hannah Tan

6 Questions with… is an opportunity for women and girls everywhere to share something about their passions and lives. (It’s also a fantastic excuse for me to be really nosey and learn more about the incredible women I admire.)

This week I’m putting Hannah Tan in the hot seat. We first met back in 2016 via the wonders of Facebook Groups (thanks Melyssa Griffin) and since then I’ve seen her go from strength to strength. While we’ve never met face-to-face (New Zealand is a little far for a casual coffee), she’s been a huge inspiration to me in how we can use social media for good. She’s also the person who gets the credit for starting me on, due to a Christmas present swap. I hope that this interview with her will inspire you as much as she has inspired me over the last four years!
