interview with Pauline
yourself in five words?
Energetic, comic, romantic, ambitious, strong.
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Don't look down on yourself.
the most ridiculous thing you've ever done?
I dropped out of school.
is your most treasured possession?
My cell phone. I keep my voice notes there, my calender,
my music, Internet. If I lost it life would go a bit sour.
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
have any strange hobbies?
I like to design things but most of them I never make.
I design earrings with plants, all sorts of things. Some of them
never get beyond the house.
is your greatest extravagance?
Clothes. I go crazy and I'm always get things I never planned
have you got in your fridge?
Lots of milk, and polony for Sky's sandwiches for school and
meat. I am a big meat eater.
is your greatest fear?
Never finding true love.
have you got in your pockets right now?
My cell phone and some money.
is your favourite journey?
Driving to Mutare. I love the scenery and the weather isn't
too hot. When you get to Christmas Pass at night and the lights
are on - I think its romantic!
are your heroes in real life?
My best friend Natalie and my older sister - she is one of the strongest
women I know. She has been through a lot in life but she somehow
keeps her composure. She never gives up: her name is Tariro and
it means hope so I call her Hope.
and where were you happiest?
When I was 18 years old and I was in love. I was doing music, I
was with the person I wanted to be with and we could do what we
wanted. That was the time of my life.
your biggest vice?
Insecurity. I can be very insecure but I am working my way out of
it. It has blocked a lot of opportunities for me because there are
things I should have done but I always thought I couldn't.
But everyday I am just taking up a new stride and to overcome the
fear of myself.
were you like at school?
I was artistic and a trend setter.
are you doing next?
I am launching an entertainment company.
