What's the worst thing?

How does the city inspire you?
I love how diverse London is, you can drive 20 minutes down the road and it can feel like a completely different place.

Where is your favourite place to go for inspiration?
I love to dance. Pineapple studios is full of hard working dancers.

Why does London rock?
Because I live here! Just kidding, I'm from Bath!
