Science Communicator and Model Laura Wells on Building Resilience and Effecting Change

The environmentalist and soon-to-be mum shares the morning and nighttime routines that support her multiple roles.

Welcome to Bedtime Stories, an interview series where we ask inspiring individuals to share their nighttime routines and sleep secrets. For this instalment, science communicator, presenter, and model Laura Wells shares how she balances her work life with looking after herself.

Laura Wells epitomises what it means to be a good role model. The science communicator, environmentalist, presenter, and model spends her time educating the public on the natural world and how we can protect it, as well as promoting positive body image in an industry that used to be very narrow-minded on what it portrayed as beautiful.

Laura describes her career as a rollercoaster that has worked its way into a choose-your-own-adventure book. "There has been no linear progression, no defined structure, and no big goal that I was chasing, but rather a f**k around and find out the style of movement through multiple industries and degrees that has allowed me to explore and find out what I love doing," she shares with Bed Threads Journal.

She completed degrees in biology and law and intended on working as a scientist somewhere in the environment and ocean areas. "However, I was slightly derailed from this for a little while when I moved to NYC and London to work as a curve model after graduation." For four years she stayed working as a model overseas, learning to appreciate her body and practice self-kindness. She also realised she wanted to make a difference. "I realised I wanted to make a change in the world and help people understand that their actions really do make a difference and that we need to protect the planet for a healthier future."

Laura has been able to combine her love and curiosity of science and the natural world with the skills she's learnt in front of the camera to work as a science communicator. This involves hosting documentaries, TV shows, public talks and conferences, and working in the environmentalist and activist movements, to push governments and corporations for policy and legislative change.

The demands of educating the public on a topic as serious as the environment and being a soon-to-be mum are no mean feat. Below, she shares what self-care means to her, how she balances her work life with looking after herself, and the sustainably-minded practices she follows.
