Lisburn, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland



Andrew FalloonAndrew Falloon (20) is undergoing work experience at the Ulster Star as he tries to decide whether journalism is the career he wishes to pursue. He spent two years studying in Dundee but is glad to be home to help with the DIY around the house.

What do you like doing on your day off?
I'm quite a big sports fan. I would try to catch up on any games that are on and watch the sports news especially when it comes to football. I'm also a dab hand at DIY so I'd have a go at fixing things around the house. I'm especially good at wallpapering and plastering.

I you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
It would have to be pizza in New York. My aunt's friend lives out there in the Bronx and someday I would really love to go there and experience it - it's a real possibility.

What has been your proudest moment?
When I got accepted to Dundee University to study law. I didn't get in on my a-levels so I went to Dundee and took an HNC as an introduction to Scottish law.

How would you describe your taste in clothes? What's the most you ever spent on a single item?
Pretty casual really - hoodies and jeans mostly - but I do like decent clothes as well. The most I personally have ever spent would be about �70 on a pair of football boots.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
I'd probably not be very sensible and put half in a bank and half under the bed or something. I would probably give some money to the Parkinson Disease Society in Lisburn as my dad has Parkinson's and it would be great to help out.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
Giving a trumpet presentation in my first year at Wallace High. I was very nervous doing it in front of all my friends even though I was very good, if I do say so myself.

What music do you like?
I like a really wide range of music. I really like the stuff Zane Lowe plays on Radio One - it's a good mix and he's always playing really new music that you won't hear anywhere else.

What sports person do you most admire?
Mohammed Ali. He was one of the first celebrity spokespeople for Parkinson's and he really helped raise awareness. I also enjoy watching documentaries about his life and the footage of his actual fights are just amazing.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
Magaluf after our sixth year. It was simply mad - we hardly got any sleep in the first few days because you kept bumping into other groups and just heading off with them to do something else. My dream holiday would be to get a few mates and go to the USA and tour along Route 66.

If you were on a desert island what three things would you like to take with you?
A homing device so that I could be tracked down and rescued. An MP3 player and a member of the SAS to be with me - someone like Ray Mears or Andy McNabb - they would know how to do all sorts of things.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
Steve McQueen.
