Favourite Place in the world
Dubai offers a lifestyle we can only dream about with its exuberant wealth and host of world records. Ascending to the top of Burj Kalifa gives you breathtaking views across city and desert, whilst being on top of the world and taking a ride over the Palm in a private helicopter ticked off one of my bucket list.
What is number 1 on your bucket list?:
A Skydive. Jumping from a plane, feeling the excitement and thrill as you free fall is a must for me. Most people do this with the security of being strapped to a professional as a tandem jump – I want to do my first jump solo!
Biggest Role Model & why?:
Gordon Ramsay has evolved from a professional footballer, suffering a career ending injury and through adversity, reinvented himself as a celebrity household renowned chef. He is focused and fiery and clearly passionate about food. He demonstrates that when one door closes, you can open another if you really want it.
If you could invite any three people to dinner, past or present, who would they be?
Elton John – what a character, what a voice and at least I wouldn’t be the worst dressed at dinner.
Margaret Thatcher – I fancy my chances at a debate with the Iron Lady!
Eusebio – the Black Panther, a famous Portuguese footballer. He played for Benefica and Portugal in the 60s and I would love to have a kick around with him post dinner.
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
- Barack Obama
What is your dream occupation, and why?
I would love to be a Pilot. I have always had a passion for flight and would love to be able to fly a plane myself since taking a trial flight where I got to take the controls. My own license would make travel possibilities endless.
