What would you tell your younger self?
Trust your gut, make decisions you feel are right for you and your well-being and keep working hard!

Double espresso – 2 sugars !!!
If you had to be in lockdown with a celebrity, who would you choose?
Stephen Fry. Hands down, you’d learn so much!
What is helping you through isolation?
Routine, I try and run 5k and do a Crossfit class every day. Then listening to songs I love and also giving myself time to rest. It’s also fine to do nothing and let your mind rest and not feel guilty. Adjusting to the new normal is a process.
