|EDUCATION||Radbrook College, United Kingdom (early childhood education/business management)|
|NEW HOBBY||A friend introduced me to a website where you can write your life story and add photos, eventually turning it into a book. My dad wrote his story for us a few years ago and we loved reading it and found out things we never knew about our parents so I’m starting mine now as I am a recent member of the grandparent club!|
|SOMETHING SURPRISING||I have stayed overnight in a longhouse in the Borneo jungle with the Izan tribe, who used to be headhunters! When they knew I was with a football/soccer team, they got very excited and went off to fetch a wooden trophy they had won playing a team up river! Soccer is truly a global sport!|
