On having feelings:
I don’t see myself how everyone else does. I’m a normal girl with feelings, and when someone says something hurtful, it hurts. When someone says something positive, it makes me feel good. We’re human. We all have the same emotions, we all connect in the same way; through love, humour and energy.

On social media:
Sometimes I feel like you’ll go into a wormhole on Instagram and then you’re like, ‘It didn’t make me feel good'. Social media can leave people, myself included, feeling insecure.” Not only that, 'You waste a lot of time on it. You spend your life in a phone rather than engaging with people and having conversations. I always think you feel your best when you’re in nature. Being outdoors, being with animals, being with your friends. Dancing, listening to music…

On finding balance:
Work, for me, is my passion. I would not say I have any good answers. I don’t think there’s any such thing as balance. Something is always compromised. You can’t have it all. You can’t be 100 per cent all the time to everybody. Maybe when you accept that, that’s the best.

On her son:
I think it’s so much about raising boys and girls the same. I love the book by Chimamanda Ngozi,We Should All Be Feminists,  I saw her TED talk and it was very inspiring. It’s about raising girls and boys with the same values; communication and respect. That’s how I was brought up, it’s how the people I love were brought up, and they are the values I hope to instil in my loved ones. You can’t just wear one hat in life. Well, at least for me, anyway. I feel lucky to have gotten this far with my work and I’m still enjoying it.

On middle eastern women:
Middle Eastern women are always having so much fun with their fashion and make up. I think in other parts of the world it’s deemed as being superficial to want to take an interest in the way that you look or dress. I love the attitude of women who want to get up and make the very best of themselves every day and put on something that makes them feel fabulous and go out into the world, that’s how I feel!
