1) Do you have an opinion on the rise in university fees and do you have a view on current events?
It took me a while to get used to the idea that our world, as it stands, is changing just like it did for previous generations. I feel that England is reverting back to a nation partial to the wealthy and scornful of the poor. But with a background of easy wealth like that of David Cameron, I suppose that the rise was to be expected.
2) What is your favourite thing to do when you aren’t writing/ studying?
I am a big fan of wasting my time on the internet playing unproductive (but highly amusing) games, clicking on continuous pictures of memes and visiting question and answer sites.
3) Do you have a favourite quote/ lyric of a song?
‘I’m not the shoes I wear, I’m not the clothes I buy, I’m am not the house I live in, I’m not the car I drive, I’m not the job I work, you can’t define my worth, by nothing on God’s green earth: my identity is found in Christ.’
4) What inspired your story?
My story is based on my outlook on life at the time. I became obsessed with the idea of rejection and held on to my sadness quite obsessively so it was the only thing I could think to write about. After all, when you face rejection, you don’t exactly feel ‘perfect’.
5) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I would go to Tokyo. I crave technology, lights and underground trains. I want to get lost in the city, blend in and experience life.
6) If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
I’d have dinner with God. I’d talk to him about man, about his love, about me and about him. I’d ask, ask, ask and probably wouldn’t have enough time for his answers by the time dinner is over. And of course, he’ll pay.
