The radio presenter, MC and Scottish party girl is bound to put a smile on your face

•I have been involved in big events in the UAE which is always exciting! Being the DJ support act for Snow Patrol at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre was a big highlight for me. Seeing tens of thousands of people dancing and screaming when I hit play on Stevie Wonder’s Superstition was an unbelievable feeling. Seeing tens of thousands of people cringing at my dance moves was not so good!

•I also enjoyed teaming up with the guys from Emirates to show off my home country of Scotland, which was incredible. If you haven’t been to Scotland yet, I’m available to be your tour guide.

•I think the UAE should take bigger leaps to reduce plastic use. Supermarkets and local stores should implement a charge for plastic bags. My home country, Scotland, has been doing this for years. My dad once made me walk 15 minutes back to my house from a supermarket checkout to get my reusable bag, so he didn’t have to pay the five pence charge. It works!

•A mistake I have made, and many fall into this one, is becoming ‘too comfortable’ in a career. I’ve learned that you have to push yourself out of your comfort zone and do things you never knew were possible.

•I’m looking forward to new challenges in my radio career in the new year. I have exciting projects in the pipeline - new events concepts, podcasts and a YouTube series on the way. Bring on 2020!
