In this issue of Collective Hub we pull back the curtain and take a look at the success stories of creatives around the world. We explore the incredible achievements of our cover girls, NATASHA OAKLEYÂ and DEVIN BRUGMAN, the co-founders of A Bikini A Day who have 4 million fans between them. In celebration of this monthâ€™s film Hidden Figures we interview A-list actor from OCTAVIA SPENCERÂ on her own obstacles of dyslexia and stage fright; we reminisce with international pop-star and Grammy nominated artist TOVE LOÂ on her Swedish beginnings (and get to know her rebellious streak); and we break bread with several US bakeries that are helping ex-inmates turn their lives around.Â
We also get down to business in MEXICOÂ and explore why itâ€™s fast becoming a thriving start-up hub (see ya later Silicon Valley!), as well as take up residence in Melbourneâ€™s newest trash-to-treasure venture, NOTEL â€“ a rooftop hotel made of refurbed Airstreams where the design is sleek and the reservation spots are few.
