1. What’s your biggest achievement / Something you’re proud of yourself for?
“There are probably quite a few noteworthy career moments but the ones I am most proud of are the solo projects. It’s the greatest sense of achievement I’ve experienced, knowing that something I’ve invested in, whether it was my own money or investor’s, my time, or idea, or energy. It’s knowing that I’ve realised this crazy dream. That’s what’s given me the most joy – my one-woman shows and cabarets, releasing music that I’ve written myself, continuing this creative dream.“
2. What’s your biggest fear / something that holds you back?
“I think the biggest challenge is probably ‘imposter syndrome’ – feeling like I don’t know enough about something and so I don’t belong in the space I want to occupy. It’s a real challenge that so many people experience – especially as woman of colour from ‘The Flats’. The system never expected someone like me to have the drive or determination to be or achieve more, so I really have to fight the voices in my head, and the circumstances I come up against. I’m also always realising that the only way to really learn is to be IN it – everybody started off not knowing how to do something!“
3. What’s your biggest contribution / Something you like to share?
“I don’t think I’ve made big contributions, in that grand ‘giving back’ sense necessarily. But I do make my small contributions here and there, whether it’s being a supporter of the LGBTQIA community or raising funds privately for certain causes. I don’t believe in being showy about giving back.”
4. Fun Facts:
“I did my latest one-woman show while actually pregnant – mad!”
