Favourite spot in London and why?
My favourite spots in London are the lovely small village high streets such as East Dulwich or Clapham Old town with local coffee, charity and plants, flower shops. I love going to small cafés, taking long walks in the park or going to Columbia flower market or browsing clothing stores in Oxford street.
Tell us a surprising or a fun fact about you.
A surprising or fun fact about me is that I am an avid runner and have completed several marathons when I was young. Running is a great way for me to stay fit, clear my mind, and set and achieve personal goals. My favourite spot to run is along the beach.
