My answers to Diana’s questions
- What inspired you to start blogging?
There wasn’t a particular moment that I thought, “yes! I’m going to blog”. I’ve always enjoyed writing and I think it’s the best medium for me to express myself. I tried vlogging in the past but I just didn’t feel comfortable.
- Which one of your posts would you like more people to read? Leave a link!
I think the most important post I’ve written was one of my earliest body image posts where I talk about disordered eating without a diagnosis. I’ve had feedback where readers have really related to what I say and they take comfort in knowing they’re not alone.
- Who is your favorite singer?
I find this question really difficult because I’m quite flexible with my music preferences. According to my Spotify, the artist who’s songs I’ve saved most is Ariana Grande but I haven’t saved many of her most recent songs.
- Who is your personal hero and why?
My mum helped me out of a tough situation by showing me the truth I needed to see. I’ll always be grateful to her for doing that, even though I didn’t like it at the time.
- Name one book that has left a mark on you.
When I was younger, I read a book called Jemima J by Jane Green. It’s about a woman who struggles with her weight and her feelings towards her own appearance. As a young girl with body image issues, I related to the character a lot.
- Who was your favorite Disney character growing up?
I loved Belle from Beauty and the Beast but Eeyore is my ride or die.
- Besides blogging, do you have a different job? What is it?
At the moment, I’m a postgraduate student finishing a thesis. From there, I hope to get a position working as an assistant psychologist.
- If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Australia and New Zealand. I talk about going there all the time and I’d love to stay for 6 months.
- If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Michelle Obama. She must have so many stories. I read her book but I’m sure there’s more to tell.
- What’s your all-time favorite memory?
My favourite memories are from my childhood when I would spend weekends at the caravan with my grandparents. I also loved visiting the Rockies in Canada, so that’s a special memory too.
- If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
The power to heal.
