OCCUPATION: Film Researcher by day, DJ by night
IF YOU HAD A CHANCE TO COME FACE TO FACE WITH A CURRENT WORLD LEADER, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?
I was considering having a few words with Zuma, but he is too far gone. There is nothing you can say to that guy anymore. Ideally I would like to put Trump, Putin and Kim Jong-Un in a room together and see what happens. I wouldn't be surprised if by the end they are arguing about whose penis is bigger, it's basically what they are doing now. If I had to say anything to them, I would be wasting my breath, these idiots don't listen to anyone.
WHAT’S STANDING BETWEEN YOU AND COMPLETE AND UTTER HAPPINESS?
The biggest thing I've had to overcome recently and still continue to do so, is my anxiety. This often holds be back, out of fear, but I'm learning to deal with it and overcome it in conjunction with my everlasting self doubt.
GIVE YOUR LIFE A MOVIE TITLE AND WHO WOULD BE BEST SUITED TO PLAY YOU AS THE LEAD CHARACTER?
Title: "Your Own Asian" Actress: Alexa Chung if she was an actress! (but also I just want to be her)
IF YOU HAD TO DIE FOR SOMETHING YOU STOOD UP FOR, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
DO YOU HAVE FAITH OR FEARS ABOUT YOUR FUTURE, THE FUTURE OF YOUR COUNTRY AND THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD?
I often fear the future and that comes with my anxiety so I'm trying not to worry about it and focus on my faith in the future and what is good in this world. But I worry about my role as a womxn in the film industry and the eventual expectations of being a wife and a mother who can juggle a career I've been wanting since I was 14 years old. This worry increases when I see what is going on in the world and it feels like womxn's rights are being targeted everyday, especially with so called "leaders" like Zuma, Trump, Putin and the list goes on. These men have very little respect for about half the world's population and they are meant to be leading them. It breaks my heart to see the atrocities and injustices happening to womxn around the world and whether I would want to bring up children in this kind of turmoil. But in saying this I have to believe that things will get better if we keep fighting for it and making our voices heard. We have to believe in hope and the good in people in order for us to carry on. We can't regress as a species.
