Seize the day or hit snooze?

Hit the snooze button! I wish I was a morning person, but I cherish every bit of sleep when I can get it.

 

What motivates you in the morning?

My coffee machine. It’s my favourite purchase of all time. I bought it during lockdown and it makes me come alive in the mornings!

 

What would your dream weekend involve?

Being somewhere near water – it’s so calming and relaxing. Seafood for lunch, a nap and a good book.

 

What outfit are you most looking forward to wearing after lockdown, and where will you wear it?

I bought this Ralph Lauren tie-dye shirt that I’ve been waiting to wear for at least a year now! I’m looking forward to its debut at a music festival I’m going to in August.

 

What was the greatest day of your life?

The day my first book came out. Nothing was the same after that.

 

 

What one item could you not live without?

My Amazon Alexa. She got me through lockdown

 

What were your highest and lowest moments of lockdown?

It was all a blur, but the high was the support we had for each other and for key workers. The low was not seeing family and friends.

 

What was the last thing that made you laugh?

Peep Show. Best british sitcom ever.

 

And the last thing that made you cry?

I watched Disney’s Soul the other evening and shed a ‘lil tear.

 

What is your greatest achievement?

Becoming an author of three books. I fell into writing so it puzzles me that this is my life now. 

 

 

What embarrassing memory would you most like to forget?

Wow, so many. Probably when I’m around people and sing entirely the wrong lyrics to a song, really badly.

 

What is the greatest life lesson you’d like to pass on?

Invest time in relationships of all kinds. Life is about the people we meet and the impact we make in their lives.

 

What song will always make you move?

Don’t Dull by Wizkid. I’m an afrobeats connoisseur

 

And what book will always move you?

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

 

What is your most burning ambition?

To be myself, always.

 

 

What do you think is your finest quality?

Curiosity. I love asking questions, learning about people and the world around me.

 

What’s the most useful thing your mother taught you?

Forgiveness. It’s not always easy but it’s vital in life.

 

What one thing do you avoid at all costs?

Ironing.

 

What is love?

Someone taking the time to understand you – the good and the imperfections – and choosing to love you abundantly. 

 

How would you most like to be remembered?

As someone who created her lane and slayed in it!
