3 things I’m really proud of:

3 facts that might surprise people who have met me: -- I am terrified of roller coasters and I really struggle watching horror films.

-- I say I love tea...but I really just mean regular British black tea. I feel a whole load of Meh about all that fruity, fancy stuff.

-- I was late learning to read! I had no motivation and just wanted to sit and school and sing songs all day (true story). Now writing and books are such a huge part of my life.

3 of my favourite lessons learned in the last few years:

-- You don’t ever really know how things are going to turn out! And they often turn out how they are supposed to (no matter how much your anxiety warns you otherwise). -- Menstrual cups are a game changer, for realz.

-- Life is too short for satelite friends you’re not really diggin’, forcing yourself to do activities you don’t enjoy and having to be anything other than totally yourself.
