London, April 5 (IANS) TV personality Alesha Dixon doesn't worry about getting older and insists her thirties have been the best period of her life so far.

The 34-year-old feels better than ever.

"Since I turned 30, I've never felt better in my own skin. I don't worry about the future because that will take care of itself," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Dixon as saying.

"I don't carry around past baggage because what's that going to do for me? We only have now," she added.

"Britain's Got Talent" judge, Dixon grew up in London's Welwyn Garden City with her Jamaican father and British mother. Although she was bullied at school, but she looked at her situation as a unique experience.

She added to the Cosmopolitan magazine: "I had great friends at school but still some kids made racist comments. Thankfully, my parents were very good at helping me understand the ignorance that lies within someone who could make such a remark," added Dixon.

"I was the only mixed-race girl in my school, but for me that was a positive thing. It made me unique. If it wasn't for spending time with the black side of my family, perhaps I may have left like an outcast, but I never did," she added.
