What does it mean to be a modern women?
I notice eyes because as is often said, and I agree, that 'the eyes are the window to the soul'. They are by far the most revealing of any person's features. To me they reveal a sense of a person's true personality, whether they are friendly or cold, for example, or if they lack sincerity, even if someone may be hiding something from me.

When does a girl become a woman?
I am passionate about my charity work so will still be fighting with The Sunlight Foundation to raise support for young children trafficked into sex, to rescue and restore their lives. My other goal is for myself. I will be 35 years old and I want to be still learning how to be a better person, leading a healthy life, keeping fit, being taught by life and leading a colourful life as a painter.

How do you handle disappointment?
First, I would relax, take a deep breath and plan on being anonymous. Then get good advice about ensuring I'd be safe financially for the rest of my life - I'm a very practical person. If I or my family had any debts, I'd pay them and set up my own business - designing my own brand of fashion and makeup. What was left I'd give to charity and celebrate with some wasteful spending.

What's been a picture-perfect moment in your life?
That's easy! I bought a juicing machine online because they said it was easy to clean. I believed them but used it once and it took an hour to clean after making just one glass of orange juice. Inside it looked like an engineer's nightmare. The advertisement implied it would take a whole orange and separate the skin from the flesh but no, it was all mixed together and tasted vile.

How do you handle stress and pressure?
When I was a child, I had a pair of pink boots and I loved jumping in puddles. I am still tempted! I love the rain, walking in it, driving in it especially at night and feeling cocooned from the world. My favourite activity on a rainy day is sitting on my patio with a book smelling my garden coming to life, one of the best smells imaginable.
