Who is the person in your life you look up to the most?
My mum. She’s kind and caring, humble, and always puts others first.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
Offer to take notes in meetings – that way, you’ll dictate what happened and the agreed actions.
What is your life motto/mantra you try to live by?
I’ll refer you to the title of one of my favourite songs, “To live is to fly” (Cowboy Junkies). If there was space here, I’d give you the rest of the lyrics – definitely worth listening to.
