BBC Radio stalwart, Chrissy Jackson is an enthusiastic footwear follower and apparently was kicking herself when Matthew Gudgin invited Milly J onto his show first!
If the interview is still available, you can find it on the BBC iPlayer and looking up the Chrissy Jackson Show. Milly talks to Chrissy extensively about her life, trends and business.

I was very lucky to be interviewed on the BBC Look East News couch alongside fellow soloist, Emma Nuule. The slot was hosted by BBC stalwarts, Stewart White and Amelia Reynolds, discussing our night of performance and singing for the Mudeka Foundation.
It was a dash from the studios to the stage for the night's performance however!

Many know that I was originally trained as a professional actress and singer and the fluidity of the creative arts is very important to me.
I am thrilled to be raising awareness and singing for the Mudeka Foundation show. The foundation was established by Anna Mudeka and raises funds for orphaned children in Zimbabwe. As I too was an orphan, this is especially important to me.
I will be singing solos and alongside Soprano Emma Nuule.
Tickets are still available and the rehearsal was filmed by the BBC with Emma and I sitting on the BBC Look East couch this Friday prior to the show.
Photos are from yesterday's rehearsal.

It is also considered to be the, "Desert Island Discs" of Norfolk. Choosing just 6 songs was a hard feat to achieve!

It was an honour to be invited as an ambassador for Norwich High School For Girls earlier this week. The small team of mentors teamed together for the Inspiring Females initiative founded by the school's head teacher and Siobhan Ecke. For the first time, it also comprised of men who made up the so called inspring people within the area.
However, it wasn't about us on this day. We spent the afternnon in mentor pairs and spent the day with up to ten, 14 year olds each. Guiding them through how they would start their own social enterprises. Looking into the seed stages, finaces, marketing, operations and so on. My team came up with a technology app and I was impressed to see how tech savvy they all were.
It was truly an inspiring day for all!
