What do you like doing on your day off?
Shopping and going out with my friends and family

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
A Sunday dinner in a homely restaurant in the middle of nowhere with my family as we don't get too spend that much time together because there are so many of us.

What has been your proudest moment?
The day I saw my story printed, with my name on the top, in the Ulster Star

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
Reading at my granda's funeral in front of about 200 people

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
Vintage and different, I don't like to blend in or wear the same thing as everyone else

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
I would wait until I am 18 and I would buy a nice house and car and use the money to pay for university. I would also give some to my family and the Cardiac unit in the City Hospital as they looked after my granda when he was sick.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I once heard something around school and asked the teacher what it was. He said it was something rude and he would probably get sacked if he told me! The entire class burst into fits of laughter - and afterward explained it to me what it meant. I didn't make that mistake again.

What music do you like?
My favourite artist at the moment is Diana Vickers.

What sports person do you most admire?
Sports isn't really my thing but if I had to choose someone it would be Mary Peters simply because she used her talent to bring Northern Ireland into the media spotlight for all the right reasons during what we know as The 'Troubles'.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
My best ever holiday was probably going to London with my Dad to see Bon Jovi in concert, that was probably the best trip away ever. My dream holiday would be to New York.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
To become a journalist and one day become Editor of a fashion magazine.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
Chad Kroeger, the lead singer of Nickelback

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
My Dad, my picture of my Granda and the Guardian Angel my mum bought me.
