Q1. During lockdown, what is the most important thing that you’ve learnt about yourself?

I’ve learnt that I thrive on being outdoors and enjoy spending time with my family making the most out of our local areas of natural beauty. We don’t need to travel when there’s so much to offer locally.

Q2. What has been your most memorable moment during lockdown?

My Dad calling me upset and lonely and there being nothing I was able to do, not being able to see him or even invite him over for dinner with us to cheer him up.


Q3. Explain what things that you miss most from your life before COVID-19. How will you not take them for granted in the future?

Being able to travel the world carefree, I’ve lots of friends abroad and it’s always been stress free to visit them, I definitely won’t be taking world freedom for granted in the future.
