Please list five fun facts about yourself. I love croissants and will have one most days. I love them so much that I took a croissant-making course.

I have lived in 64 places over the last nine years. My full name is Penelope Elizabeth Lane, but even my parents have always called me Penny.

I’m a certified holistic health coach. I was brought up in the U.K., but when I was 17 my family moved to Australia. 

What made you try out for SI Swim Search? At 15, I had an unbelievable encounter that stayed with me for years. I remember first seeing a Sports Illustrated [Swimsuit] issue and being amazed by how empowered its ladies were.

Their boldness and attractiveness inspired me to cut out their photos and hang them on my wall, wishing I might be like them. I now see that my manifesting power was at action even then, as I had no idea that my dream would lead to this moment.”
