Name: Debby Trubble

Hometown / area: Chippenham, Wiltshire

Job: Hula Hoop Dance Instructor, Hoopsmith, Fire Performance Artist, Children's Party Entertainer

How would you describe yourself? Happy, fun, outgoing and adventurous!

Your best kept secret? People often ask "How do you not burn yourself when you're fire dancing?" Well secretly, I do, quite a lot.

Who do you most admire? In the hooping world, Gail O'Brien- she's a badass!!

What is your best achievement? I'd say my best achievement is probably teaching over 100 people to Hula Hoop this year, in my local classes and at festivals through the summer.

What do you do for fun? Hoops are my main love, but I also like spinning poi, fans, staff and levistick. Besides spinning, I love getting out in nature, looking after my two lovely boys, cooking, camping, travelling and partying!

What motivates you? People who are better than me!

What is your biggest challenge in life now? Building my website! It's so hard!!!

If a genie gave you a wish what would you wish for? To be able to play the guitar.

Any hidden talents? As well as making hoops, I make and customise my own clothes, leggings and fire spinning sleeves.

What's your motto? More of a mantra than a motto but it's to never worry about what anyone else thinks of you.

Describe yourself in three words? Sparkly Unicorn Pirate

Your life would be meaningless without... My children

Why do you like BendyWicks? I have a lot of hoops! For me, being able to switch the hoops your wicks are on, and the number of wicks you have, is just the best. They're great quality, last ages and don't bend out of shape like some other major brands of fire hoop.
