Favourite food: Pasta

Favourite hobby?:Travelling, Acting& Singing

Favourite holiday destination? Why?:Given the opportunity and the time I would fly back to Euro Disney and Paris. Euro Disney brought many childhood memories immersing myself with Walt Disney characters, the numerous soft toys and breath taking rides was a memorable experience… Paris is simply magic and romantic. The Eiffel tower at night was simply magnificent.

Favourite TV show / Movie ?:Movie: Walking on Sunshine,
TV Show: Once Upon a Time

How important is music to you/why:For me, a world with no music is dull. I find comfort in music and I turn to music when in need to express my happy and sad moments. Music heals pain, gives you motivation, hope and positive energy. Music takes you to special instants in life, people you have met, places you have visited and emotions you have experienced. I also think that people unite and the world changes only through music and lyrics. Music produces a vibe which the human being simply cannot do without.

How much time do you dedicate to vocal training and rehearsals?:I practise with my vocal coach Ms. Pamela Bezzina once a week, and try to dedicate my free time at home to training.

From the current Malta Eurovision 2016 finalists, who would you choose to duet with/why:
Ira Losco. I followed Ira from the very early stages of her profession. I love her music and I think highly of her as she remained a humble person. I feel lucky that I will get to know her personally through this experience.

A typical weekday for you from morning to night:
Mornings are pretty much routine; work from 8am to 5pm. On the other hand, the evenings vary from day to day filming, vocal lessons, nights out with friends and my boyfriend and also relaxing evenings at home.

How do you like to spend your weekends:It doesn’t matter as long I’m surrounded with my family, boyfriend and my special friends.

Your musical influences: Taylor Swift. I love her music and I love the fact that Taylor Swift writes most of the lyrics correlated to her personal experiences. I followed her from the beginning of her career andI find the extensive transformation Taylor made in her music as something incredible and admirable.

Please share a message to Music News Malta followers:
Always dream and believe in yourself. Unfortunately life is a bumpy road with a lot of highs and lows. Enjoy and appreciate every little moment as if it were your last. Try and live life to the full. Do not let fear abolish your dreams. If you really want it, then do anything possible to achieve it. I know that words are easier said than done, because I too struggle to keep up with them sometimes, but nothing comes easy in life.
