If you were an animal, what would you be, and why? I would be a lion. I think lions represent physical strength, confidence and intelligence and I think that reflects my nature.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why? It would be the ability to have a super photographic memory that would enable me not to study and do really well in school anyway.

What careers are you interested in, and why? I want to study medicine and specialise in Pediatrics. I believe that wanting to become a doctor is a calling and you have to be aware of exactly what you’re getting yourself into but that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do as a child and it is still my dream.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I’ll still be studying and there will be three years to go. Hopefully I would have played my grade 8 piano exam by then and basically enjoying life!

Who inspires you/who is your role model? My mom and dad. They are truly inspirational people.

What’s your motto/favourite saying? If God is for us, who could be against us?
