Cici asked her followers encouraged her followers to ‘ask her anything’ and one replied: ‘Is it a bad thing that I don’t know what I want to do or who I am at 25?’

Cici reassured her follower in the reply and said: ‘Mate. At 25 I was one step away from being homeless. I had zero idea what I wanted to do. But I had hope.’

The blonde beauty continued: ‘Take the pressure off having the answers. You have your whole life ahead of you to figure out who you are. That doesn’t come overnight. It’s a continuous lesson.

‘Each moment is a new experience where we get to learn something about ourselves. Try out different jobs, make more mistakes, figure out through those mistakes (lessons) what you do and don’t like. 

‘And don’t forget to have fun on the journey. Also imagine how boring life would be if you had it all figured out. There wouldn’t be any room for improvement. My mistakes have been my greatest teachers.’

‘They told me to make sure I lock all the doors because of the monkeys. The monkeys will try and get in and apparently they are very sneaky, so they steal all your mini bar! I am living in a little dream world!’

Giving her following a sneak peek of her stunning hotel suite, she tried to figure out which of its opulent three bedrooms she would be sleeping in.

She said: ‘So I think this is the room I am going to stay in look at it!

‘It’s got a little welcome message! I feel very, very lucky, very, very blessed. I don’t really know what to do with myself.’
