Five Minutes With (South Wales Argus)

I was interviewed for the South Wales Argus' 'Five Minutes With' piece back in December 2012. You can read it on their website HERE.


FIVE MINUTES WITH: One of Torfaen's youngest councillors Jessica Powell 
Friday 21 December 2012 / Gwent news 


IF YOU HAD TO BE STUCK IN A LIFT WITH SOMEONE, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY? 
Nick Grimshaw. He'd be entertaining and easy on the eyes.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST FEAR?
 A roomful of spiders. Like that scene in Something Wicked This Way Comes.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SUPERSTITIONS?
Not really; life is what you make it.

IF YOU COULD HAVE ONLY ONE SONG ON YOUR IPOD, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
Such a cruel question. Probably Silver Moon by Donkeyboy because I still love it no matter how many times I hear it.

WHAT'S THE MOST EXPENSIVE THING YOU'VE BOUGHT, NOT INCLUDING PROPERTY? 
My computer or, judging by my SLC statements, my education.

WHAT'S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU'VE BEEN GIVEN?
Do your own research and come to your own conclusions.

WHAT'S YOUR INDULGENCE?
Crisps. Potentially with chocolate...

WHAT ITEM COULD YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?
My Blackberry. I can't even imagine life without it.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
I wish I was more confident. I used to be really painfully shy, so it's much better, but it would be nice not to have to work so hard at it.

WHERE ARE YOU NEXT GOING ON HOLIDAY?
No idea. Hopefully somewhere hot and sunny.

  2. I love all your answers - spiders I can't deal with them either, about a year ago I was in the bath, just got in and a Big massive spider came out the drain that lets water out at the top, for months I was paranoid and taped a plastic tub on it when I was bathing lol quickest bath I ever had!
    Best advice question > top answer ! I agree. I also wish I was more confident #thebabyformula

    1. Oh my gosh, I would have done the same!! I went into the bathroom a couple of weeks ago, looked up, and there was this huge spider over the doorframe. I yelled for OH and was stood as far away as I could - in the bathtub! x

  4. I think I'd have similar answers on a few of these, though not the spiders one! I really don't get why people are scared of them they're so small :-)

    Thanks for sharing on #TheBabyFormula

    1. Haha, I can't even explain what it is with spiders. It's like they instantly magnify 100x as soon I spy one!
