Questions asked by my nominator
1: If you could be any animal, which one would you be?
I think it would be fun to be a monkey, because they are funny and intelligent, and I would enjoy swinging from branch to branch through the trees! Also, they eat fruit, which is more appealing than what some other animals eat!
2: If you could have any car, regardless of how much it costs, which car would you choose?
I’m not really into fancy cars, I wouldn’t even know one brand from another! So I’ll stick with my little yellow Peugeot 107 which I have had for the past 7 years!
3: What is your favourite alcohol drink?
I don’t drink much alcohol so I don’t really have a favourite! Probably some kind of fruity cocktail though, if that counts!
4: If you were going to be stranded on an island, what movie would you take with you?
I’m stumped with this one, as I don’t have a favourite movie! I tend to watch movies in the cinema but rarely at home so I hardly ever see a movie more than once and I can’t really remember the details of most of the ones I’ve seen! So I’d go for a lucky dip and take a movie at random.
5: What is your favourite thing to do outside of work?
Going out for fun outings with my friends and family – especially if they involve eating, walking, cinema, and shops! Or just chilling at home and reading.
6: If you could win an Olympic medal for any sport, real or fake, which sport would it be?
Flying! Maybe you’d call it ‘air acrobatics’ or ‘synchronised flying’ or something like that. I sometimes have dreams where I can fly, and it’s so much fun!
7: If you had to only eat 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
If I could only eat 1 thing, I would want it to be nutritionally complete so that I could remain healthy! So could it be a smoothie made up of various fruits, vegetables and ‘superfoods’ like hemp, spirulina and chia? Or would that count as multiple foods?
But if I could choose any food and still be healthy, I’d probably choose a nice satisfying pasta bake!
8: What was your favourite subject in school and why?
My favourite subject was always music, I’m not sure why but I always enjoyed it from a young age! I started learning piano and violin when I was quite young so I suppose that gave me a head start in lessons.
9: What is your favourite emoji?
🤣 or 😍 because they signify laughter and love!
10: What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
I haven’t had many jobs in the traditional sense, but I did some admin work at my dad’s company a few years ago. It was pretty boring, I basically had to enter names into a database all day!
11: What actor/actress do you look most like?
A stranger once came up to me and told me I looked like the French actress Sophie Marceau (which is strange as my name is Sophie too!) and I don’t think I look that much like her but I can kind of see where he was coming from!
