Proud moment

My proudest moment was raising £5,923 over the past three years for The Brain Tumour Charity and Cancer Research UK in honour of my brother in law who died from glioblastoma in 2020. I plan to do another fundraiser soon.

Childhood aspirations

I wanted to be a singer growing up. I absolutely love singing and performing and take every opportunity I can to do so, still today. I even used to sing in a jazz cafe!
