Where are you from?

I was born in Pamplona but I visit England frequently as my mother’s English. I loved playing with my cousins when we were over and still enjoy visiting my family there.

What sports do you like?

I’ve always liked football. I used to play in my village team when I was a teenager but now I particularly enjoy hiking.

What’s your favourite food?

I love spicy food but I also really enjoy the food from here. “Pintxos” are great!

What was your favourite game when you were a kid?

I’d spend hours making dens anywhere. I’d use stones, sticks and anything I’d find if I was in the mountains and pillows and blankets when I was at home.

What was your favourite film when you were a kid?

My favourite film was “The Jungle Book”. I would watch it time and time again without getting sick of it. The tape was stretched I watched it so often!

What do you like about Pamplona?

I’ve always thought there’s something special about Pamplona. I love the town walls and the view from them. I also like the fact you have everything you need but at the same time it’s a small town and you can walk everywhere.

Do you have any hobbies?

I like spending time in nature, walking in the mountains. I also like travelling and getting to know new places and people.
