It was during my MA Architecture degree show at the Royal College of Art in the summer of 2011 when Qona approached me about my work, interested in what my plans were for the future. In reply, I stressed that the thought of full-time architecture practice was something I didn’t want to rush into, with an aim of exploring various avenues in life. Continuing with constructing workshops within local communities and for learners that want to get into art, design and architecture was a path that I wanted to explore further.
Doing this in the past with “The Stephen Lawrence Trust” and “Architecture For Everyone” around London, started my passion for supporting and mentoring those who wanted to achieve personal goals within art and design, yet felt disadvantaged when trying to do so, whether it was because of financial circumstances or academic difficulties. Working as part of the team at the Creative Mentors Foundation would give me the perfect opportunity to continue to guide and advise pupils and potential future artists and designers, and teach them that with hard work and perseverance, anything is achievable, no matter what hardship you are in.
