Recovery College.

What helps you to relax, and


Autonomous Sensory Meridian

Response (ASMR) are videos that

use certain sights and sounds for

their sleep-inducing, de-stressing,

and mood-boosting eff ects and they

help me to relax.

What is your favourite place in

your local area, and why?

My favourite place has to be the

lake not far from where I live as it's

a quiet area that allows me to sit

and refl ect on things in my life.

What do you do to keep active?

I love dancing and cheerleading, it's

a passion of mine and I have been

doing this since I was 14 years old.
