I was born and brought up in Yorkshire but I am Indian by background and visit India on a regular basis. I am fluent in English and Bengali. I am a keen pianist and have played the piano since my childhood. I also enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and dog; we enjoy travelling around the world and visiting new places. Over the last few years, I have developed a keen interest for interior house design, which I enjoy for utilising my creativity skills.
