Favourite Quote:

“Vision is the art of seeing things invisible.” - Jonathan Swift (my favourite writer growing up)

Personal Hero:

My nan. She’s a general class act, plus she did charity work at the local hospital until the age of 90. If I can proceed through life with the same generosity and good nature, I will consider mine a life well lived.

7 things I would like to do if I were given the chance:

  1. I realise it’s unlikely but… go to space
  2. See the Northern Lights (ideally from space)
  3. Start a successful business
  4. Work for a charity
  5. Learn more languages
  6. Own a season ticket for Derby County Football Club
  7. Learn to ski. I tried it once. It’s impossible.
