Margo Mars
I was born in….
The flat flats of the Netherlands!

I now live in…
East London!

But if I could live anywhere, it would be…
I don’t think the perfect place exists! Home is always Home!

The last track I listened to was…
WORK IT Missy Elliot

I dream about…
Flying. Parties.

The app I couldn’t survive without is…
Thank goodness no app is irreplaceable

Social media is…

When we can travel again, I’ll be heading to…
I’ll start easy - a bit of France and a touch of Italy please.

The most important lesson I’ve learned in 2020…
You have a rhythm that works for you, listen to it. Work when you are most productive, eat and rest when that works for you.
