What’s your warm up song?

At the moment I've been warming up to This Girl by Kungs. My entrance song to the ring is Bang Bang Lulu by Boney M

What are you watching on TV / streaming right now?

I've just been watching a heap of boxing clips, Pernell Whitaker lately.I don't normally watch much TV but Master Chef has been a little regular... of late.

Vegemite: do you keep in the fridge or pantry? 

I keep my Vegemite in the pantry so it's easy to spread.

Favourite other sport?

I love skateboarding

Do you have any tattoos? Tell us about them.

I have a few tattoos… I have 2 on my wrists when put together they say BE.... To me it was a moment in my life where I needed to change and it's a reminder to myself to be present and in the moment. I have the cartoon character Little Lulu with a skateboard on my ribs she represents me. I have a butterfly on the back of my neck and a little om symbol on my elbow, I got theses tatts with my best friend. Then I have a little made up symbol on my foot that me and my bestie gave each other.

To play me in a movie of my life I’d want...

Salma Hayek

What do you hope to see from Zela?

Continual growth and success of covering female athletes and building awareness of  our great sporting champions! I love the campaigns!

Who was your role model growing up?

My role models growing up where some very close friends. Guy Jefferies who was a huge part of my skateboarding journey, he pushed me to better myself in and out of my sport. My female role models were Maurise and Melanie Maclou who believed in me and helped shape me into a mature young lady. I always looked to those who were close to me steering me in a positive direction.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?

I see myself being a successful entrepreneur running business in the sports/health industry. Possibly managing and mentoring other young women. Layne Beachley is doing amazing things for women and I hope to create an impact like her.

Are you a cat person or a dog person?

hahaha I'm a cat person
