1) THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS?

It was a year of change, pushing me out of my comfort zone. So far, only positive “side effects”. Figure that.

I got a new job, in a domain I really enjoy. I am excited to see where this may take me in the future. My boyfriend and I also moved to a new flat. We love our new home and neighbourhood.

2) THE WORST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS?

I honestly cannot complain about that least 12 months.

Our family dog, Rocky, passed away 1 ½ years ago though. He was an adored family member and an absolute darling. We miss him dearly.

3) YOUR BIGGEST WISH FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

Continued health and happiness for my near and dear ones, and not just for the near future. I’m trying to take a moment every day to feel grateful. Life is precious and we often take these things for granted.

4) YOUR BIGGEST WORRY FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

Global warming, terrorism, racism, and (some of) the American southern states views on women’s rights – just a few things that spring to mind. Scary.

5) A CONTEMPORARY WOMAN YOU CURRENTLY ADMIRE?

Patti Smith. I was lucky enough to see her live in Sweden a while back. I cried with happiness throughout the concert. As well as her music, I love her books. Her written work is incredible.


And my friend Anna, who launched herself as a life coach on the side of her job as a solicitor. Inspirational and thought provoking: @yesyoucoaching.

6) A ONE-SENTENCE MESSAGE TO OTHER WOMEN?

Diana Vreeland: "There's only one very good life and that's the life you know you want and you make it yourself.“
