I'm really happy to be part of the finalists this year, I got to meet a lot of other very talented creatives and learned a lot from them, we had people from Yaba Tech, Foxall UK, RavensbourneUK and CCHub who gave us very enlightening master classes on Branding, Fashion Retail, Pattern Making, Textile Printing, 3D printing and so many more, we even made our own FANzine, My page was hilarious, they had to take still shots of me dancing.
