1. I'm a law graduate
Yes siree! I graduated last year with an LLB in Scots Law. It's been a tough journey but I'd like to think I'm better off for it!
2. I bake
I have a little sideline venture where I just bake a lot and give away the results to willing test subjects :) I jest! I actually sometimes get commissioned to bake special occasion cakes from time to time which I actually really enjoy doing.
3. I'm a British Born Chinese
My family hail from Hong Kong but I was born and raised in good old Scotland!
4. I'm quite musical
I played violin in school and actually reached grade 4 before I started university. Now I play acoustic guitar which I semi-taught myself.
5. I love to travel
I studied abroad in the USA during my degree and LOVED it! I have a passion for travelling and would love to see a bit more of the world before I settle down to be a 'grown up'.
6. I've lost 3 stone since 2008
Weight is a subject that has played a huge part in my life. It may not seem much but I'm so much more confident now than I was back then. There's still a long way to go for me but by golly I shall get there!
7. I'm secretly a nerd
Pretty sad, I know but I'm embracing it!
8. I want to do everything!
I would love to just do everything! Painting, photography, music, academia, writing...you name it, I want to do it!
9. I have checkpoints in life
I often sit down and think about what I want to do with my life (must be the university graduate in me). I have checkpoints where when I reach that checkpoint, I take another review of where I want my life to head towards. Right now, it is to qualify as a Scottish solicitor. It's taking a lot of willpower and several knocks to my confidence but as Kelly Clarkson says: 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger!'
10. 'Glass half-full'
I'd like to think of myself as an optimistic person, but at times like these where finding a job is hard and life is throwing you lemon trees, I tend to surround myself with people who brings out the 'glass half-full' person in me!
In hindsight, thinking 10 facts about me is quite the task, but I'd like to think I've represented myself pretty well!
What are 10 facts about yourself?
