Turns out I’ve been doing this for longer than I care to admit (I sometimes lie about my age 🤫). I started teaching myself HTML, CSS and PHP around 16 years ago and started my first little side business 15 years ago. Over the years, I’ve picked up some nifty little skills and qualifications. A few of the certificates on my wall are:
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A popstar, a lawyer, a fashion designer – I’m a Libra, w’re not too great at decision making.
What is one thing about you that surprises people?
I’m a massive nerd. I love learning new things and solving puzzles.
What advice would you give your 18 year old self now?
Don’t waste time doing things you think you’re supposed to. Take your own path and do something great!
Do you have any pets?
I have one beautiful white cat called Sarabi. Growing up, we always had animals – cats, dogs and rats.
What qualities do you admire in other people?
Kindness, integrity and a good sense of humour. If we can’t make fun of each other, this isn’t going to work.
What does success mean to you?
Happiness and freedom – being able to spend time with people we care about, doing things we love and not having to worry about trivial issues.
