What do you like doing on your day off?
I usually like to go shopping or to the cinema with my friends.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
My favourite meal is my Mum's roast beef dinner with all the trimmings because it is delicious.

What has been your proudest moment?
That would definitely have to be when I won the world Juvenile Grade title at the World Pipe Band Championships at Glasgow this year.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
A few years ago when I visited Blackpool Pleasure Beach and my Dad took me into the 'Pasaje del Terror. There were live actors including Freddy Krueger who jumped out at you in dark alleyways and gave you an intense fright.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
My taste changes from day to day, but normally I would just weal skinny jeans and a pretty top.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Spend, spend, spend!

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I can't think of one moment in particular, but it would definitely include my Dad.

What music do you like?
I like pop and R&B music like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

Describe your best ever holiday.
In summer 2011 when I went on a Royal Caribbean cruise of the Mediterranean. It was absolutely amazing.

What is your greatest ambition?
Obviously, my ambition is to do well in my A Levels, but I also have an ambition to become World Champion again in the Senior grade.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
I would choose Cheryl Cole because she has achieved everything through hard work and is a role model for young people.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
The first would definitely have to be my mobile phone, I can't live without it. My second thing would be my iPod, and third would be a boat.
