What do you think you’ll bring to the villa?

I’ll bring vibes, confidence, good energy and honesty. I don’t sit on the fence, if I have an opinion I will speak up. I’m also not afraid to go after what I want.

If there was one thing you’d want your new fellow Islanders to know about you, what would it be?

That I’m deaf in my right ear. I’ve got a tattoo next to my left one that symbolises strength and power in my good one.

Do you have a claim to fame?
