Nova grew up in Wellington with one brother and 73 imaginary sisters.
At school she was bad at most things, but dominated in School Journal plays. Now home-schooled, she still loves drama – comedy especially. She is part of a cool little homeschooling drama group which has just been selected to go to the national SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival with their 15-minute scene from Henry V.
Nova stabs herself with needles at least eight times a day – usually due to having type 1 diabetes. She likes hula hooping, reading graphic novels, and making Vines (Wnghe!) and YouTube videos (Nova the Top) with her brother and flatmates.
