Importantly, she never discouraged me and always told me I looked gorgeous. I think this helped build my confidence. Then, at around the age of seven, I started attempting proper techniques and trying to create actual looks.

When I was eight, I came up with my drag character, Francheska Valley. I liked that the first name began with an ‘F’, like Fabian , and we live in the Valleys, in Wales – so it just worked.
