00:00:02,600 --> 00:00:06,311

This is the Maharani Moment Podcast

 

2

00:00:06,311 --> 00:00:12,599

brought to you by Rebel City Distillery and Good Day Cork.

 

3

00:00:12,599 --> 00:00:20,899

We have all been at that juncture in time where life has offered us

 

4

00:00:20,899 --> 00:00:24,800

choices and no matter what we picked,

 

5

00:00:24,800 --> 00:00:29,399

there was no guarantee of how things were gonna turn out yet.

 

6

00:00:29,399 --> 00:00:35,700

There's this instinct that helps us make a life-changing choice.

 

7

00:00:35,700 --> 00:00:41,000

We might not even know it at that moment it’s only on reflection.

 

8

00:00:41,000 --> 00:00:46,111

We realise, “Aha. That was a Maharani Moment!”

 

9

00:00:46,111 --> 00:00:49,074

“..that moment of Liberation.”

 

10

00:00:49,074 --> 00:00:53,568

We have gathered stories to offer you comfort,

 

11

00:00:53,568 --> 00:00:59,399

to help you realise that self-liberation is well within our reach.

 

12

00:00:59,399 --> 00:01:04,200

We don't have to go very far to get these stories.

 

13

00:01:04,200 --> 00:01:12,000

The Maharani Moment Podcast is created right here in Cork - featuring people of Cork.

 

14

00:01:12,000 --> 00:01:15,732

So brace yourself, put your headset on

 

15

00:01:15,732 --> 00:01:18,700

because the next 30 minutes,

 

16

00:01:18,700 --> 00:01:22,599

is definitely going to be empowering.

 

17

00:01:22,599 --> 00:01:28,400

This is the Maharani Moment Podcast.

 

18

00:01:38,500 --> 00:01:44,799

In episode 1, our host Bhagya Barrett co-founder of Rebel City Distillery

 

19

00:01:44,799 --> 00:01:50,900

chats with Thayane Carlos, co-founder of Cork Rooftop Farm.

 

20

00:01:50,900 --> 00:01:56,200

And Dr. Eliza Di Carlo, an environmental scientist.

 

21

00:01:56,200 --> 00:02:04,500

We hope that this conversation inspires you to live your best life.

 

22

00:02:09,300 --> 00:02:12,900

Hi Thay thanks for joining us today.

 

23

00:02:12,900 --> 00:02:15,433

It's lovely to have you here and

 

24

00:02:15,433 --> 00:02:20,500

it would be it's a great opportunity to hear your story as well.

 

25

00:02:20,500 --> 00:02:25,199

How was your day? It was beautiful and thank you Bhagya

 

26

00:02:25,199 --> 00:02:35,500

for the opportunity to share my story with you and with the world.

 

27

00:02:35,500 --> 00:02:41,599

So my day was beautiful even though it was raining all day.

 

28

00:02:41,599 --> 00:02:46,400

So I really really enjoy gardening and farming.

 

29

00:02:46,400 --> 00:02:52,800

So I was doing I was sowing and planting.. this kind of stuff.

 

30

00:02:52,800 --> 00:02:55,500

It was nice.
So while gardening,

 

31

00:02:55,500 --> 00:02:59,199

do you listen to  any songs?

 

32

00:02:59,199 --> 00:03:01,699

Yes, I love piano.

 

33

00:03:01,699 --> 00:03:03,800

I love classical music.

 

34

00:03:03,800 --> 00:03:14,400

Oh, so every day when I go there I do my meditations
and yes piano piano and piano.

 

35

00:03:14,400 --> 00:03:19,500

Sometime I sing for the plants as well.

 

36

00:03:19,500 --> 00:03:22,300

Do your plans listen to music like you do?

 

37

00:03:22,300 --> 00:03:26,500

Yeah. I think they love this.

 

38

00:03:26,500 --> 00:03:33,199

I can see the brightness coming up.

 

39

00:03:33,199 --> 00:03:37,800

So Thay, when you moved from Brazil to Ireland, three years ago -

 

40

00:03:37,800 --> 00:03:43,000

Was there any moment where you got stuck and how did you overcome that?

 

41

00:03:43,000 --> 00:03:50,199

I think my real unstuck moment was when I was here.

 

42

00:03:50,199 --> 00:03:53,699

So as I said to you I was living in Dublin before

 

43

00:03:53,699 --> 00:03:59,500

and I lived there for three years and the point was - there -

 

44

00:03:59,500 --> 00:04:02,699

we have a really really huge

 

45

00:04:02,699 --> 00:04:09,000

community …Brazilian community and then I was living with Brazilians.

 

46

00:04:09,000 --> 00:04:11,900

I love my country. But you know,

 

47

00:04:11,900 --> 00:04:24,100

I love my people but my goal wasn't this -
like,  I travelled a 10,000 miles to come to Ireland

 

48

00:04:24,100 --> 00:04:28,500

and I found myself stuck and stuck

 

49

00:04:28,500 --> 00:04:31,100

yeah between the Brazilians again,

 

50

00:04:31,100 --> 00:04:39,100

and I could not improve my English, I was talking in Portuguese all the time and bad jobs,

 

51

00:04:39,100 --> 00:04:46,800

you know, so cleaning and babysitting and I said to myself like,

 

52

00:04:46,800 --> 00:04:50,000

“Okay, so it's not what I want to do…”

 

53

00:04:50,000 --> 00:04:57,699

You know, it's wasn't for this the why [reason] you know,

 

54

00:04:57,699 --> 00:05:01,699

I came from Brazil and okay,

 

55

00:05:01,699 --> 00:05:05,300

[I knew] that it’s time. “Let's move again.”

 

56

00:05:05,300 --> 00:05:14,300

“Let’s move again.” This is how I found Cork and and I fell in love.

 

57

00:05:14,300 --> 00:05:23,699

I came here three times before I moved to Cork .

 

58

00:05:23,699 --> 00:05:28,100

So that's why that was very important to me.

 

59

00:05:28,100 --> 00:05:33,699

You know that intuition.. listening [to] the voice of inside me like okay,

 

60

00:05:33,699 --> 00:05:36,100

“You need to do more, You can do more!”

 

61

00:05:36,100 --> 00:05:39,500

You know, you can go far.
To come out of that comfort zone, right?

 

62

00:05:39,500 --> 00:05:43,699

Yeah come out of the comfort zone and push out of the comfort zone.

 

63

00:05:43,699 --> 00:05:46,500

Yeah. Exactly. You can come out.

 

64

00:05:46,500 --> 00:05:50,634

Yeah and hats off to you Thay, because moving

 

65

00:05:50,634 --> 00:05:53,600

from one country from Brazil to

 

66

00:05:53,600 --> 00:05:55,800

Ireland learning a new language

 

67

00:05:55,800 --> 00:05:58,899

and pushing out of the comfort zone and now going ahead

 

68

00:05:58,899 --> 00:06:01,500

and starting up a business - Hats off to you.

 

69

00:06:01,500 --> 00:06:05,100

I think it needs a lot of courage a lot of passion - kudos to you

 

70

00:06:05,100 --> 00:06:08,158

for the courage to stand up for that

 

71

00:06:08,158 --> 00:06:11,699

and achieve more than what you already had.

 

72

00:06:11,699 --> 00:06:14,100

I think Corona in one way it's good

 

73

00:06:14,100 --> 00:06:17,600

for all of us because it makes us think outside the

 

74

00:06:17,600 --> 00:06:21,800

box and kind of find innovative ways of doing business,

 

75

00:06:21,800 --> 00:06:25,100

isn't it like the ‘Growth Box you're doing [at Cork Rooftop Farm] and all those.

 

76

00:06:25,100 --> 00:06:30,600

I think it's brilliant. People are .. all the businesses are
trying to do business in different way,

 

77

00:06:30,600 --> 00:06:32,420

which we wouldn’t even have thought,

 

78

00:06:32,420 --> 00:06:33,699

if Corona was not there.

 

79

00:06:33,699 --> 00:06:37,100

Yeah. I think the challenge makes humans think more, isn’t it?

 

80

00:06:37,100 --> 00:06:45,100

I totally agree.
If the Corona virus didn't come up,

 

81

00:06:45,100 --> 00:06:48,300

I don't know if I [would be] doing gardening,

 

82

00:06:48,300 --> 00:06:52,000

you know, I don't know if…
You see it pushed you and now…

 

83

00:06:52,000 --> 00:06:56,500

Yeah.
Now your’e running a Cork Rooftop Farm so it pushed you.

 

84

00:06:56,500 --> 00:07:00,600

Yes. Yes a lot.

 

85

00:07:00,600 --> 00:07:05,100

Maharani means Queen.

 

86

00:07:05,100 --> 00:07:11,699

So is there a moment in your life where you felt like a queen and where you felt totally liberated?

 

87

00:07:11,699 --> 00:07:19,500

Was there any moment where you felt like a queen
and could you please share that with us?

 

88

00:07:19,500 --> 00:07:26,600

Yes. Yes. I have I really really big moments in my life,

 

89

00:07:26,600 --> 00:07:32,399

that made me  literally jump, you know

 

90

00:07:32,399 --> 00:07:45,500

in from from the abyss. Like my Maharani..

 

91

00:07:45,500 --> 00:07:55,800

Moment was a really big decision that I did 17 years ago

 

92

00:07:55,800 --> 00:07:59,500

when I decided to run away from home.

 

93

00:07:59,500 --> 00:08:05,199

I was living with my father and his brother.

 

94

00:08:05,199 --> 00:08:11,199

He tried to abuse me and my father was out of the reality,

 

95

00:08:11,199 --> 00:08:16,699

you know, he was alive, but with the traumas,

 

96

00:08:16,699 --> 00:08:20,000

you know - it had consumed his soul,

 

97

00:08:20,000 --> 00:08:29,000

his brain and everything. My mom unfortunately,

 

98

00:08:29,000 --> 00:08:33,200

[committed] suicide and my grandmother passed away.

 

99

00:08:33,200 --> 00:08:43,600

Within one year after my mom and in sequence [following that] the

 

100

00:08:43,600 --> 00:08:49,899

favourite sister of my father .. my aunt was very ill.

 

101

00:08:49,899 --> 00:08:54,000

It was in a very short period of time

 

102

00:08:54,000 --> 00:09:01,100

and that was a completely disaster - strikes our family you know.

 

103

00:09:01,100 --> 00:09:07,299

I think that [they] those three women were holding the entire family

 

104

00:09:07,299 --> 00:09:20,500

because after that we just you know - we separate[d]. It was like a tsunami in our family and yeah.

 

105

00:09:20,500 --> 00:09:24,500

I guess that's why my father, you know could not see you know

 

106

00:09:24,500 --> 00:09:30,299

and care about me and my brother - I have one brother.

 

107

00:09:32,200 --> 00:09:40,600

The government was giving my father money
to help us; me and my brother - but he wasn't,

 

108

00:09:40,600 --> 00:09:45,600

you know doing anything with the money and we had our house as well.

 

109

00:09:45,600 --> 00:09:51,399

So that money should be enough for our education, for food,

 

110

00:09:51,399 --> 00:09:54,200

but he was sick as well.

 

111

00:09:54,200 --> 00:09:59,700

You know, I forgive my father because now I can understand.

 

112

00:09:59,700 --> 00:10:10,399

You know, I can see everything clearly. But I could not stay so I ran from my home that day.

 

113

00:10:10,399 --> 00:10:17,000

I was praying and crying in front of Christ.

 

114

00:10:17,000 --> 00:10:23,399

I had one how can I say this Monument or statue?

 

115

00:10:23,399 --> 00:10:27,100

Yeah, and I had this image in my room

 

116

00:10:27,100 --> 00:10:31,899

and then I was crying crying crying asking for help and asking for my mom

 

117

00:10:31,899 --> 00:10:39,399

and trying to understand why .. that you know what was happening with me.

 

118

00:10:39,399 --> 00:10:43,945

You know [asking myself], “What I did?”

 

119

00:10:43,945 --> 00:10:49,399

And God gave me this answer: go to - run away,

 

120

00:10:49,399 --> 00:10:53,799

you know  - go to your auntie.

 

121

00:10:53,799 --> 00:10:56,200

She's very lovely.

 

122

00:10:56,200 --> 00:11:04,500

And is [the] sister of my mom and I lived there with her three years of my life.

 

123

00:11:04,500 --> 00:11:09,386

That was the second time, I found love in my life

 

124

00:11:09,386 --> 00:11:13,100

that moment  - to me was very important

 

125

00:11:13,100 --> 00:11:15,299

because I was needing,

 

126

00:11:15,299 --> 00:11:18,500

you know - a hug and care,

 

127

00:11:18,500 --> 00:11:25,767

you know  - and simple things like a hug, talking.

 

128

00:11:25,767 --> 00:11:29,899

So that was a big decision.

 

129

00:11:29,899 --> 00:11:34,700

But but was one of those - the best of my life

 

130

00:11:34,700 --> 00:11:43,500

because I could go back to studying, I had my room, I had my own privacy.

 

131

00:11:43,500 --> 00:11:45,873

You know  - so these things to me is very

 

132

00:11:45,873 --> 00:11:47,399

very very very important.

 

133

00:11:47,399 --> 00:11:53,131

You know, I always  - how can I see this? I

 

134

00:11:53,131 --> 00:11:57,299

am always very grateful to her

 

135

00:11:57,299 --> 00:12:00,974

because I lived with her for three years

 

136

00:12:00,974 --> 00:12:04,200

and was from my 15yrs to my 18yrs.

 

137

00:12:04,200 --> 00:12:06,799

So I get the support,

 

138

00:12:06,799 --> 00:12:09,799

you know to be a grown woman,

 

139

00:12:09,799 --> 00:12:13,899

you know to understand
and be independent.

 

140

00:12:13,899 --> 00:12:21,799

Yes independent and to be aware what was coming next like okay?

 

141

00:12:21,799 --> 00:12:25,100

‘Suicide is this’ - ‘Life is this, this and that,

 

142

00:12:25,100 --> 00:12:31,200

you know, you know until you're 15 and right now,

 

143

00:12:31,200 --> 00:12:35,600

you know more this. She gave me the love and knowledge,

 

144

00:12:35,600 --> 00:12:40,068

you know, “So be careful with this, with that.”

 

145

00:12:40,068 --> 00:12:43,700

Things that I was missing from my mom

 

146

00:12:43,700 --> 00:12:47,799

and my dad  - so yes.

 

147

00:12:47,799 --> 00:12:53,299

Yeah, Thay losing a dear one, family one is a very hard thing, right!

 

148

00:12:53,299 --> 00:12:55,799

I'm happy that you shared it

 

149

00:12:55,799 --> 00:12:59,232

because it's a very personal thing and it's .. such a ..

 

150

00:12:59,232 --> 00:13:01,100

very emotional thing as well.

 

151

00:13:01,100 --> 00:13:02,500

I'm glad you shared that with

 

152

00:13:02,500 --> 00:13:06,200

us because you have channelised that particular moment

 

153

00:13:06,200 --> 00:13:09,899

and you have pivoted in your life in a different direction

 

154

00:13:09,899 --> 00:13:12,668

and gone to the next level.

 

155

00:13:12,668 --> 00:13:18,700

And thanks Thay, for sharing that particular moment with us.

 

156

00:13:18,700 --> 00:13:21,600

You’re welcome.
I wish I could give you a hug - hugs for you.

 

157

00:13:21,600 --> 00:13:23,899

Yeah, I'm feeling your hug.

 

158
