What were you like at school?
Oh God, what a first question! Hopefully I was nice! I worked very hard in class and was pretty obsessed with sports. Bit of a geek I guess. Had lovely friends, liked house parties, enjoyed the one shit local club we went to a lot…and maths. I liked maths a lot too. I’ve got nothing bad to say about school really. I liked it. It did me well. I’ve a lot of great friends still from school.
Who would win a fight between Batman and Spiderman?
Depends ey – on their tiredness levels, if one of them was ill, what they’d eaten, how they were feeling emotionally that day. It’s not a question answered so easily as that. I’ve seen Spiderwoman help out Spiderman a lot. Not sure Batman’s such a good helper.
What inspires you about this project?
The fact that it’s fun, helpful and kind; which are pretty much my only wishes for life.
