What are you best at? I am a people person and my job is all about customer service. I get to meet some very interesting and diverse personalities in my job and it is a fascinating journey each day, meeting new people and hearing all their stories. Your ideal holiday: I love Croatia, or anywhere warm with good diving facilities. It’s how I like to unwind. Your favourite food: Chinese food, but sadly it doesn’t like me! I usually follow quite a strict gluten-free diet so that may be the reason. Who inspires you? My dad.
If you ruled the world, what is the one thing you would change? The politicians of today!
