Why was PR your chosen career?
I studied Fashion Marketing at university with the plan of starting my own clothing line but I quickly fell out of love with fashion and fell in love with PR and went from there…

If you hadn’t chosen a career in PR what would you be doing?
I’ve always liked the idea of being a matchmaker, although I think that is a job I made up in my head so I would probably be stuck in retail still!

What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
Eat whatever you want and if someone calls you fat, eat them too.

If you won the lottery, how would you spend it?
I would get so many dogs.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Pizza Hut – I was a terrible waitress and only lasted a couple of weeks.

If you were an animal what would you be and why?
A sloth – for obvious reasons.

If you could, would you live forever and why/why not?
It would depend if I would continue to age normally or would I stop aging when I was younger? Would my friends and family be able to live forever too? Would there be any additional super powers? Would I have a super villain with a dark backstory trying to steal said powers? So many questions…

Who are your top three dream dinner party guests?
Tariq Ali, Larry David and Paris Hilton – I like mixing things up a little.
