So how did this bubbly Essex girl make it onto the nation’s airwaves?
“I’ve always wanted to be a DJ literally since I was as small as I can remember. I’ve always loved music, my mum and dad have got videos of me dancing round my living room when I was only 4 or 5 years old singing away. We used to listen to Kiss when it was a pirate station and I remember sitting downstairs and saying to mum, ‘What is that job? What do they do?’ My parents explained the job and radio and from that point on I went for it and I’ve never looked anywhere else.
