Basketball jerseys, GCSEs and what she wanted to be when she grew up... We caught up with Hackney-born actress and singer Paigey Cakey as she hits the road with We Live #The_Dream UK tour...
When I look in the mirror I see... big dreams! I really feel I'm fulfilling my purpose in life and I'm aiming to leave a major mark on both the music and acting worlds.
If I were stranded on a desert island with one thing it would be... my Chicago Bulls jersey. I love it! The Chicago Bulls are my favourite basketball team!
When I was at school I wanted to be... a vet! I was, and still am, obsessed with monkeys! I never pursued the vet career - I would've loved it though. I love animals. When I was 16, I released for my a song for my GCSE music project.
It got over 10,000 views on YouTube in its first month. That led to my passion in music and recognising that I had a gift that I wanted to share to the world. From there I've has a roller coaster of opportunities in this field!
My biggest style triumph was... I swag out everyday. Most messages from my supporters on Twitter and Facebook are about my style and me being a style "icon" in fact!
If I could be any character from film or literature I'd be... Storm form X Men. I love the power that she has over the weather. I would keep the UK hot all year round! Also, she's a spiritual person and I like that compared to other superheroes.
