What do you love most about singing?

I love being able to express deep emotions through music. Singing heightens the emotions a character is feeling, and being able to explore those feelings brings me great joy and catharsis.

How does your perfect day off looks like?

Start the morning off calmly with some coffee on a balcony or by a window. I find connecting with the outdoors/nature brings me peace. Starting my day off like that is the best. Then if I can do some exercise and spend time with family and friends (probably over a meal...eating also brings me great joy) is a favourite way to use my days off.

Dog or cat?

Dog!!! They are such loving and loyal animals. I've always seen myself spending my evenings on the couch reading a book or watching tv with my dog cuddled up on my lap. One day!
