On my foot it says, 'The best is yet to come,' and that's there because I really believe it.
Everyone has a past, and the downside to my life is that the past gets dragged up.
I'm aware people will think I've had an easy way into a dream career. My view is, if anyone has opportunities, they'll take them. My surname opens doors, but those doors will slam firmly if I'm no good.
I love looking at people who have achieved a lot - even Kim Kardashian, who has made a brand out of being a reality TV star; I applaud that.
As a woman, I believe you have to embrace your body, and feel beautiful both inside and out.
I don't think that coming from a privileged background makes you this monster who doesn't feel things.
There's a big difference between being privileged and being spoilt. My parents always said, 'Spoilt means ruined, and you're not ruined, just incredibly fortunate.'
I was raised to want to work for a living. The idea of just sitting around or going shopping every day appalls me.

I want people to see that I'm a real person, I overreact, I cry, I'm emotional. If I come across as perfect and in control, that wouldn't be who I really am.
I'm the sort of person who takes a camera to dinner or a nightclub because I enjoy taking pictures of people. I tweet all my pictures, which is bad.
There are so many misconceptions about me, and it gets frustrating no matter how thick skinned.
