After completing school, I plan on attending university to study business, majoring in events/tourism management. Career wise, I hope to be working with a team who organises concerts, music and/or art festivals and potentially art events/exhibitions, with the hope of one day owning my own company or even starting up an annual festival. As an artist I usually find inspiration from personal passions, beliefs and my heritage. My most recent works, such as ‘The Matter of Choice’ really voices my love for the environment and my thoughts about being an activist for a better future with regards to the environment.
