HOW CAN WOMEN BEST SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER?

By going to each others shows, giving their music a share and exposing other sisters to their own fanbase. Empowering and leaving kind words - I have my little group of sisters that range from DJs to singers and actresses and I am so grateful for their support and motivation I know they’ve always got my back and I’ve always got theirs.

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AS A KID? HAS ANYTHING CHANGED?

When I was young I was very shy and quiet and now I’m very outspoken and free spirited I’ve changed so much.

WHAT WERE YOU LIKE AS A TEENAGER? WHAT MAJOR THINGS DID YOU COME TO REALISE AS YOU GREW UP?

I was very wild as a teenager haha, my focus was school but I knew how to have fun doing it. I was a very bubbly person in high school. I was scared of not being liked but now I only have a handful of super close friends and have realised that if I’m not everyone’s cup of tea that’s totally fine everyone has a right to their own opinions. I also realised that it’s okay to be wrong sometimes and you just learn from that, I was such a perfectionist.
