What was your dream job when you were younger?
I wanted to be an actress. I would spend hours every day learning scripts in my room, reading up on prospective agents online, and practicing my Oscar speech that I was obviously bound to have to give one day. It was written in the stars. Once a week I would take musical theatre classes, and at least twice a year I’d perform on stage with my parents watching in the audience. As you can probably already tell – things didn’t quite work out as expected. I sort of stepped away from that dream after two terrible years of GCSE Drama; instead, I turned my focus to things I knew I was better at – school and being creative. This led me to attending a world class university, opening my own webdesign shop, and eventually led me to where I am now. Right now – I work full time in investment banking, and part time I blog and create everything you see here. A little bit different to the dreams I initially had.
