ACHIEVEMENTS AND INTERESTS
Since 3 years old I have ballet danced, performed in many shows, and helped out with sewing costumes. I am very interested in crafts and textiles, often making my own clothes and historical dresses. I enjoy going to textiles and historical fashion exhibitions in places such as the V&A Museum. Achieved the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award in 2014.
