Describe what you were like at school in three words?


Hard working


What’s the best thing about Manchester?

The people and the city; so many great restaurants, theatres, museums. The music scene is second to none, the shopping is ace and you’re never too far away from the countryside.

What has been your biggest disappointment?

Realising that being a grown up isn’t all it’s cracked up to be!

How do you relax?

Running or binge watching box sets on Netflix.

The soundtrack to your life. Which song?

Yellow – Coldplay

If you could go back in time, where would you go?

I love the fashion from the 1950’s. I would love to have lived in this era.

What’s your most over-used phrase?

“oh blimey!”

What advice would you give to your 15 year-old self?

Accept yourself although this is a lot easier said than done and may take time.

Appreciate the here and now, before long you will be an adult and it’s rubbish!!

Be nicer to your parents – they sacrifice so much for you so respect that and be grateful.

Never give up. There will be times when things aren’t going your way but failure is a part of life and things will change.
