If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
My favourite meal is simply burgers and chips from McDonalds. I love that they put two burgers in one which is why I love them so much.

What has been your proudest moment?
My proudest moment would have to be winning the yearly penalty shoot out in my first year at Ballymacash or coming second in sports day one year which for a me is a big achievement.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
The frightening moment in my life must have been watching a scary movie by myself with the lights off with lightening outside. It was terrifying.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
My taste in clothes is mostly football tracksuits.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
If I won a million pounds I would buy my team Linfield and help Rangers with their money problems. I would also buy myself a mansion.

What music do you hike?
I like all kinds of music, I love the Black Eyed Peas, Eminem and all kinds of other bands, I really like R&B.

What sports person do you most admire?
I admire Steven Gerrard for all the things he has done for Liverpool, like in 2005 he inspired Liverpool to win the champions league from 3-0 down to AC Milan in the final.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
My best ever holiday would have to be when we went to Portugal with my family and friend. We stayed in a villa so had a huge swimming pool and me and my friend had not seen each other in a while so we could talk. The weather was very, very hot but with going out to restaurants every night I was not complaining. This was also during World Cup 2010 so I got to watch Spain beat Holland in the final. My dream holiday would have to be to go to Barcelona and visit the greatest football stadium in the world.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
At this moment my ambition is to go to my first Liverpool match as even though I am a loyal fan I have never been before. I would also like to become a journalist.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
I would have to say Michael McIntyre. I chose him as he is very funny and would keep me laughing the whole day. He is also a football fan so we could talk about football.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
My TV, lots of bottles of coke and my Playstation.
