My main hobby is training in the gym. I enjoy weightlifting and I also enjoy calligraphy. Both have a very calming effect and are good for taking time out.
Favourite Place in the world
I spent a month in Koh Samui when I was 21 and fell in love with the laid back style that the locals have. The food is amazing and really tasty. Koh Samui has the calm you need for a mini break but also a lively side when you need some fun. The beaches remind me of Jersey and are very welcoming.
Where in the world you most like to visit that you haven't already?
New York. It’s on my bucket list to visit. I want to shop till I drop, have a real New York bagel and sip cocktails in Manhattan. Also, a visit to New York can’t be complete without a stroll through Central Park.
Biggest role model and why?
My Grandad. I have always been very close to him and believe he is the ultimate fountain of knowledge. There isn’t much that he doesn’t know! We both enjoy nothing more than chatting about history while drinking some good gin. I believe I inherited my can-do attitude from him.
If you could invite any three people to dinner, past or present, who would they be?
It would have to be Sir David Attenborough. I’m absolutely fascinated by him and I believe that he is one of the greatest human beings on the planet. I would want to hear about all the little adventures he gets up to that don’t necessarily get shown on TV and ask him lot of questions.
Beyonce – I love how she has so much sass but does it with absolute elegance. I would love to know what she is like off stage.
Marilyn Monroe – Another woman who inspires every single woman to just be themselves. I would like to know more about her relationship with JFK.
'Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she'll conquer the world'

Favourite ice cream?
Mint choc chip - any time of the day, month or year.
