We like to understand what really makes our customers tick. Often they tell us their stories, which can be quirky and unexpected. We thought it would be fun to share. Introducing the superfan Stella.

Write a xinja profile, like a tinder profile or back story 😉 in 500 characters or less
I’m a technology lawyer with a hope that fintech will make financial services more widely accessible. I was previously an aboriginal legal aid lawyer working in the Northern Territory, and I saw how challenging it was for persons in remote communities to access banking services. Problems regarding ID, access to ATMs, lack of transparency over fees and the imposition of fees for checking balances are some examples. I hope Xinja will be able to make a difference in this space, as well as help Australians become more financially literate.
Tell us something unexpected about you?
I was voted Australia’s #1 Krispy Kreme Fan in 2009 and I inspired a range of white chocolate “heavenly doughnuts” which were sold in stores for 3 months. I also won a year’s supply of doughnuts, a trip to the USA, amongst other goodies.
In one sentence, how would you describe your relationship with money?
Time is money. I work in private practice.
Confession time: what do you waste money on?
Me, waste time/money? Never, I’m either investing or recycling (i.e. leveraging).
Halo time: what’s the best thing you’ve spent money on?
Food. I enjoy sharing meals with others and organising breakfast/lunch/dinner events so that people can come together to have fellowship with one another and build community.
How did you find out about xinja? Why did you choose xinja?
It’s my job (really!) to keep abreast of the latest technology-related developments, so that’s how I probably found out about Xinja. I’m curious to see how Xinja works out its mission to be a customer-centric bank and a custodian of customers’ data, including how it will uphold its stance that customers will always remain owners of their data. I’ve seen some of these values evident in the way certain things are done at Xinja, and I’m keen to see how things play out.
If sky’s the limit, what would xinja create?
Given your mission to be the bank which helps its customers achieve a happy ending regardless of their back story, I think Xinja would, if it could, create more love, wisdom and contentment in this world.
Personalisation matters to us. What are little touches that would make your day?
I’m a pretty competitive squash player so a Xinja sports towel that helps me keep cool in between games would be a nice touch.
