My experience at Wolverhampton was literally life-changing. It is the foundation upon which my career has been built. When I enrolled for my course in 2006, I was not confident at all. There is silent confidence that comes as a result of being informed and knowledgeable.

I was taught to believe in my natural abilities but also put those abilities to good use. I was taught that talent is great but you need to be hard working to achieve it. This award is very humbling for me and I hope that it inspires prospective and current students to pursue careers in the creative industry.
