If you ask me…

    Who has had the biggest influence on you?
    My parents.

    Which health or social care professional has been most use
    to you?
    The outreach workers who helped me with my phobia.

    If you ran care services in your area, what would you do
    differently?
    Get rid of the labels attached to children and young
    people in need of support. I have never been in a dangerous

    My own art room.

    Being off school and having time to reflect and
    change.

    If you won the lottery how would you spend the money?
    Give some to charity, my family, a trip to Venice and some
    film editing software.

    What makes you happy?
    My cats, art, music, talking and laughter.

    How would you like to be remembered?
    For being positive and making a difference.

    Who do you most admire?
    Film director Peter Jackson, the writer Malorie Blackman,
    and the band Muse’s lead singer Matthew Bellamy.

    What is the most important lesson you have learned?
    Optimism, and that everyone deserves equality.
