What do you like doing on your day off?
Depending on my mood that day, I would either stay in and read, or head out shopping with friends.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
My mum makes the best spaghetti Bolognese ever.

What has been your proudest moment?
The day I, with my team, completed our ALP challenge with Lisburn YMCA. The original goal was to walk all I2 mountains of a horseshoe in one day however the weather turned against us. We managed to climb three mountains in pouring rain, freezing cold, and winds up to 100mph until our leaders decided that conditions were too dangerous for us to continue.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
The night I did a night walk with four other girls my age as a part of our residential with the ALP, we got lost at one o'clock in the morning and I thought we would never find the leaders again.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
I'd like to think that while I stay in touch with fashion, I always put on my own twist on my clothes and make them my own style.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
I would travel the entire world, starting from Scotland and ending in Russia.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
My life is basically an embarrassing moment, but possibly the worst moment ever was when I was on an exchange to Germany. Whatever my host family fed me it completely didn't agree with my system and I threw it up while I was in German chemistry.

What music do you like?
Pink is my favourite singer, I love her music and am going to see her outside concert in June.

What sports person do you most admire?
Serena Williams. One of the few sports I follow is tennis and I really look forward to Wimbledon every year.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
I haven't been on holidays in years, but I'm currently saving money for a trip to Magaluf, which my friend, Sophie, has planned for summer 2011 when we all turn I8.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
Apart from travelling the world, my greatest ambition now is to go to the University of Edinburgh.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you' want with you?
An airplane, a pilot, and my best friend.
