What are some lessons you’ve learnt from your work?
Treat everyone with respect, regardless of their hierarchy in the organisation. We’re all here to do a job, so do it well and be professional about it.
Are there any things from the past you’re nostalgic for?
Definitely. I sometimes miss the days before smart phones and iPads, where you’d see more people having conversations or reading books on commutes, whereas now almost everyone seems to be glued to their phones—but I’m guilty of that too!
If you could create an advertisement for yourself, what would the tagline be?
“The Best is Yet to Be”.
What’s the last thing you read that you’d recommend to others?
I’m a bit of a bookworm and have just finished a few good books. One that I highly recommend is Educated by Tara Westover. It’s a memoir which shares her difficult childhood, and how she managed to beat all odds and earn a PhD from Cambridge University despite never having never received a proper education. It’s heartbreaking to read what she went through.
Do you have any random, useless talents?
I can do a headstand for a few minutes with my eyes closed!
Is there any fictional place, thing, or person that you wish existed for real? Why?
Narnia! I loved The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, and always wanted to go there .
