What would people be most surprised to learn about you? 
I don’t drink alcohol and I’m vegan. I care a lot about feeling good on the inside out and I always care a lot about the environment, the planet, leaving as little footprint as possible and working out how I can positively impact the world around me.

When do you feel sexy?
When I’m at home, put on some music and dance around the house – sometimes naked. But I feel like that’s a standard stereotype. So, just dancing in general. 

What is your best asset?
Probably my booty. I’m curvy and it’s something people comment on a lot – they say my bum is like a peach.

What’s one thing men should always know about women?
Men need to understand women’s emotions better – we aren’t the same every day. We want to feel loved and safe, and know we can be looked after, but we also need support in letting us be independent. 

What do you look for in a man?  
I find confidence and drive a really attractive trait – someone who is proud, knowledgeable and knows what they want. Not someone who is arrogant.

What’s the weirdest thing someone has sent you on social media?
The most recent one was a guy from Texas asking me if I wanted to join the Illuminati and become a billionaire.

What’s next for you?
In the next six months my main focus is creating content – I want to build up a strong female audience through my platforms. I have a big message to share around body positivity, mental health and uplifting others around me. In the next five years I want to have my own health and wellness centre and be helping people on their health and wellness journey through meditation and alternative medicine.
