Can you recall the first time you performed in front of a camera or an audience?

My first appearance in front of an audience was when I was an acting student at Freespirit. This was an end of term performance! It was an experience that made me understand better how challenging and beautiful acting is. On the other hand, appearing in front of a camera is a different challenge. You get to miss the audience connection, however I believe that the acting is more internal as the camera gets to capture all the small details!

Is there any particular theatre or production you’re aiming or hoping to collaborate in?

I’ve always wanted to work directly in a production set up. The involvement of having to see how time consuming, challenging yet very satisfying production work is gives me motivation to work harder. This was one of my inspiring jobs, and I’m therefore extremely happy with what I get to do. I look forward to continue working with Division 7‘s team and future projects with DBA Entertainment.

Do you consider fashion to be an important part of your life?

I don’t have much time to go shopping, however I do like to keep myself updated with the latest trends. What I feel is important is that I feel comfortable with my appearance, other than having to be loyal with the latest fashion.

New technology and gadgets hit the shelves every day. What is currently at the top of your wish list?

I don’t consider myself to be a highly technological person! I have the basic technological needs around me which keeps me going everyday. One item on my wish list is a much needed gadget to prompt me where my continuously misplaced car keys are!

Where do you see yourself in ten years’ time?

This is a very tricky question as I don’t see afar in my everyday life. My main principle is to live day by day. What matters to me is that in ten years’ time, myself and my loved ones will be in a happy and healthy place.
