Louise Benham

The person that most influenced my decisions in life when I was younger was... there have been a few people...all wiser and more experienced than I.

The last interesting book that I read was... “One Day”, but like the cliché goes, the movie didn’t live up to my expectations.

My first job was...  a Saturday job when I was 16 as a librarian.  So not me…it was nearly impossible for me to stay quiet for 8 hours.

At school, I was known for... dislocating the sports teacher's jaw when my gymnastics trick went a bit wrong during a primary school play rehearsal.

My guiltiest pleasure is... karaoke. The two years spent teaching English in Japan in my post-graduate days have a lot to answer for.

When I’m not at work I spend my time… chasing after my toddler son, doing the odd boot camp class and enjoying home cooked food made by my lovely husband.

My favourite movie of all time is... oh tricky, just one…maybe… Back to the Future?

I know it's not cool but I love... Musicals.

One of my favourite series on STV is...  Dance Moms Miami.

The person I most admire is... my sister. She is THE eternal optimist, enjoys every day as if it were her last and truly appreciates the simplest of life’s pleasures.

My friends say that I... (hopefully) make them laugh.

My hope for the future is that... all my family and friends are healthy and happy.
