All About Me

Find out more about me: who I am, what I do and what I like and dislike.


Jaskharan Shoker



Born and bred

I was born in Coventry, grew up in Coventry, I still live in Coventry…but maybe one day I’ll venture out and perhaps move somewhere else, just maybe.


I’ve just finished studying my A’Levels and am currently waiting nervously for my results, on the weekends you’ll probably find me at the Ricoh Arena working part-time in the executive boxes, and not forgetting I’m BBC Coventry & Warwickshire’s very own Blast Arts reporter.


To become a web designer or graphic designer or working in the media (can you tell that I’m slightly undecided about what I’m doing with my life at the moment?!).

Best Moment

As a devout Liverpool fan my first trip to Anfield was probably one of the biggest highlights for me, along with many others but I think I’d bore you if I told you them all.

Interesting Fact

My name’s Jaskharan and I am definitely a girl but my nickname is Jack!
It’s a little strange but hey it’s kind of interesting…isn’t it?!


I have a real passion for music, listening to anything and everything from The Killers to The Three Tenors, although I do tend to have more indie music playing out of my CD player. I like listening to new bands and up and coming artists too so myspace is always a good website to for that.

Food is also something I actually love and would literally not be able to live without. I like to try new things and it goes without saying chocolate and sweets are always a hit. I like to be creative and getting messy so painting, drawing cutting and sticking as Blue Peter as they are is still so much fun.

I really enjoy acting and being on stage, but I also enjoy being in the audience. Watching films is always a good way of passing time and Disney films in particular are always good for a bit of a giggle. And lastly, even though I’m a girl sport is one of the things I live for: football, cricket, tennis, netball, baseball, and so on.

So any boy that thinks girls know nothing about sport….try me!


Manchester United, Fruit Pastilles, tea and Russell Brand.

About Me

To sum me up in one sentence: I’m a pretty laid back sort-of person who’s a child at heart and takes life as it comes.
