Tell us about you (What drives you)
My name is Talia, I'm 27 years old and live in leafy Surrey. Having been there my entire life, I'm keen to move up to the big smoke which I'm hoping will happen this year! I’m driven by a lot of things, however the main thing for me is happiness.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
My proudest accomplishment so far is performing in front of over 75,000 people at one of my first ever singing gigs when I was 18.
If you could give your younger self 1 piece of advice, what would it be?
Don’t be afraid to fall down, get back up and try again. But most importantly, don’t let anyone dull your sparkle.
What is the single most valuable thing you’ve ever learned?
To treat everyone with respect and respect yourself.
If you could share a meal with any 4 individuals, alive or dead, who would they be?
My grandma I never met, my idol David Attenborough, my music go to Lauren Hill and last but certainly not least, Benedict Cummberbatch, because he’s incredible.
My secret passion is…/ guilty pleasure
I absolutely love fishing. My dad and I used to go all the time when I was growing up and it's been my secret love ever since!
What is something most people don’t know about you?
That I sleep with the same toy dog I have had for the past 27 years.
Who is your favourite influencer and how have they influenced you?
My favourite influencer at the moment is a girl called Sophie Tea. She is an incredible artist who keeps everything she does real. As someone whose interest in art was limited before coming across her, i’m now much more inspired to go to galleries and eventually own one of her original pieces.
