Quite simply, suffering from anxiety. It's a game changer believe me.

- Tom Fletcher. He showed me that you can continue to live a normal life and very successful life even if you have a mental health illness, you don't need to let it control your life.
- Harry Potter. Such a cliche I know, but he taught me that no matter what life throws at you you can always come out stronger and the better person.

9.  Describe your most embarrassing moment.
I get embarrassed so easily so potentially every moment in my life could be classed as this. I remember walking into a lamppost once, does that count?

10. Describe 3 pet peeves you have.
- Being late. I have always being bought up with the saying 'if you're not 15 minutes early, you're late' and I have stuck by this. Being late can actually send me into a huge panic, I really don't like it.
- Mess. If you make yourself a sandwich clean up the crumbs, don't leave them lying around for someone else to clean up.
- Being judged because I'm young. Granted I look a lot younger than I actually am, but don't just assume I'm like 'every other youngster of today'.

11.  Describe a typical day in your current life.
- Uni days; I wake up, get ready, go to uni, come home and do any uni work I need to do.
- Days off; I wake up, get ready if I'm going anywhere, do anything I need to do, drink a thousand cups of tea a day and catch up on tv I've missed..
- Days I'm going to Ryan's; If I go after uni it's the exact same routine with packing added in the morning and catching a train added after. If I go from home I get up, get ready, pack, catch up on tv and then travel.

12.  Describe 3 weaknesses you have.
- Anxiety. I let my anxiety get the better of me, a lot.

13.  Describe 3 strengths you have.
- I'm becoming stronger. I'm starting to be able to stand up for myself a lot more now.
- I can plan for England, and I mean it. I can plan every detail of my life to the exact point and I will stick to these plans. It makes my academic life incredibly planned and easy to maintain.
- I'm reliable. Because I hate being late I will always be where I say I will be exactly when I say so, unless I have a fantastic reason why.

14.  If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
I really want to say dog, but I know I'm more cat. I'm incredibly independent but I love the attention. I enjoy a good night out and enjoy my downtime, but I'd prefer to be at home sleeping most of the time.

15.  What are your 3 greatest accomplishments?
- I got into uni, that is my biggest achievement so far. The fact I'm in my final year of uni is another fantastic achievement.
- I'm in a relationship that I've been in for almost three years. Although I think that is more an achievement to Ryan for putting up with me for this long.
- I've learnt to say no. This sounds ridiculous, however if you'd have known me a few years ago you'd have seen such a different girl, who was so easily pushed over.

16.  What is the thing you most wish you were great at?
I honestly wish I could draw, I love the idea of being so creative and being able to put it all down on paper.

17.  What has been the most difficult thing you have had to forgive?
Being lied to straight to my face, unfortunately this has happened to many times to me in my life.

18. If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
Besides Leeds, which is incredibly obvious, I'd love to live in the country in a proper little country house. You know the house Miss Honey lives in in Matilda? Yeah, that.

23.  If you could have dinner with anyone in history, who would it be & what would you eat?
I would love to do this with so many people, mainly Freddie Mercury, Brian Epstein or Anne Frank, I have no idea what we'd eat, I'd let them have their favourite meal.

24.  What is your favourite part of your body and why?
My eyes; when I do my makeup and it goes right they look really nice.

25.  What is your love language?
My love language is between physical touch and quality time. Which doesn't surprise me and sums me up pretty well.

26.  What do you think people misunderstand most about you?
I'm not rude, I'm incredibly shy and social anxiety is a thing. I hate talking in public, even worse when it's people I don't know. I get myself worked up so easily. I'm not being rude, I just feel awkward 99% of the time.
