I am a big fan of savoury and sweet things, it’s called balance. I would have a crispy pork belly roast, with roasted potatoes and veggies covered in creamy sauce followed by cake. I love cake! Butter icing and I’m there, ready to eat.

The thing you love most about pole dancing is...?

Pole dancing has given me an incredible amount of core strength and my upper body has never looked better. Those are secondary to the amazing feeling of empowerment I feel since starting to pole dance. The things my body can do now, are things I could never have even dreamed of before. I am now even less concerned about the rolls and the dimples, because of how capable my body is. I have also found a community. Pole dancers are so supportive of each other. It’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.

What is the one thing most people don’t know about you?

I retain useless information really well. I’m the person you want on your team for a quiz or a game of 30 Seconds.

The song that best describes your life is....?

Sunny – Boney M

Who would play you in a film about your life?

Thuso Mbedu. This is a reach, but she is an incredible actress and her career really excites me.

You're on death row. You are given one last meal and drink. What do you choose to have?

Sushi and Coke Light. I love Coke Light.

The one thing that has grabbed your attention on social media over the last week is...?

On a serious note, the verdict in the trial of Tshegofatso Pule’s murderer. To see the law taking its course with such a heinous crime is a small step in the right direction.

How would you like to be remembered...?

As someone who always did their best.

A wild night of partying or a chilled night in watching Netflix?

A wild night of partying followed by a chilled night in? I’m turning 40 this year, so I’m always up for a party, it just takes me a week to recover now.
