Describe yourself in one word-
Favourite Item of clothing-
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Live life with zest, vitality and commitment today…and you won’t have to look ahead – it will already havehappened.
What does community mean to you?
It means roots to me. Community is where it is. It’s where it’s born. It’s where the soul is, the life is, the purpose is. And whether you stay in it or use it as inspiration or a spring board to something else, it will always be your rock at the end of the day, even when you’re flying high.
Favourite thing to do in Newham-
Listen to gossip on the bus.
