Damini interests are in art and design and she practices yoga and Pilates regularly. She loves travelling but is finding it hard to get away since she has been in Dublin due to the numerous amount of pubs and bars! She is also trying to master the art of pool playing but having been nicknamed the ‘Shrimp’ at the pool table I think her dreams of being a hustler are over!
