  • Where are you from?

Derby.
 

  • Why did you choose to volunteer at Borderline Arts?

I thought I ought to since I set it up. No, on a serious note, I'd experienced so much stigma for having BPD and I wanted to try to make a positive change to help people understand and feel more understood.

 

  • What is your role in Borderline Arts?

Founder and coordinator.

 

  • What is your occupation outside Borderline Arts?

Currently I'm not working, but past work includes (amongst other things) buying a didgeridoo from Australia for the Mayor of Durban, running art activities for kids in India, data analysis for the NHS, and admin work.

 

  • How long have you volunteered with Borderline Arts?

Since the beginning (2013)!
 

  • What is your favourite colour?

Ohhhh, there's too many colours to choose from! I like bright colours!
 

  • What’s one of your favourite places in the world?

I have to say, I did love India... but I love any warm holiday destination! And my bed!

  • What is one of your favourite quotes?

"It is our choices, Harry, that show us who we truly are, far more than our abilities." (Albus Dumbledore)

  • Do you have any phobias?

Heights.

  • Marmite: love it or hate it?

Hate it.
 

  • An interesting (or weird) fact about you?

I collect Lego, and use the figures in my photography! I also have a lopsided ribcage, and my cat sits on my shoulder when I clean my teeth.

  • Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have two cats.

  • Introvert or Extrovert?

Introvert.
