Job Title: Breakfast Show Presenter on 104.8 Channel 4FM

Where did you go to school?
I went to school in a town called Ealing which is situated in West London, UK.

What was your favourite subject?
I always loved being creative, so I really enjoyed my art classes. I felt like I could really express myself through my drawings and would always picture myself as a super hero character or part of ‘Jem and The Holograms’.

What was your least favourite?
I absolutely hated maths! I never understood why we needed to learn algebra, equations, long division and E=MC2!

Did you have a favourite teacher?
Everyone at school always loved our music teacher. The boys thought he was the coolest guy ever and really looked up to him and the girls just admired how handsome he was! I can’t even remember his name now, but I can remember how he was always so confident and admirable.

Were you good or naughty?
I was the “in the middle type girl’ at school. I would hang out with the geeks in the library at lunch time and be really good and study hard and then be on the netball pitch with all the sporty girls after school.

What was the naughtiest thing you did at school?
I once got caught bunking off school and skipping my end of day classes so that I could go see a movie and play games at the arcades. Because I spent all my money on video games, I couldn’t get the bus home so I had to call my mum and explain what happened! You can imagine the trouble I was in.

What’s your happiest memory from your school days?
I had many happy memories from school! Sports days were always fun and I loved dancing in the end of year school performances!

What about your worst one?
The worst, most possible thing any kid would have to go through in school was bullying. And it happened to me! There was this one boy who would always pick on me for no reason just to try and be the ‘class clown’. which always made me cry.

What do you do for a living?
I am a full time breakfast radio presenter at 104.8 Channel 4 FM, waking you up in the mornings from 6am-10am.

Did you always want to be a Radio DJ?
When I was younger I really wanted to work with animals but I always seemed to end up in media-type jobs. I started out as a dancer and backing singer for fun, then went on to fulfil my mum’s dream by modelling for a little while. I then presented on TV and somehow fell into radio presenting. Eight years later and I’m still doing it! I must be doing something right, eh?
