I am 23 years old and am studying Mechanical Engineering at the Central University of Technology. 

I am very passionate about art, fashion and photography. My love for photography began in 2017 using my phone, then I bought my first DSRL camera. Growing up I have always known that I was creative, but didn’t know how to express it. I wanted to be a fashion designer but I didn’t know that I had to hone the skill of drawing/sketching, therefore I couldn’t pursue it because I was really bad at drawing. 

I later found my path of telling stories that inspire, educate and empower people. I love what I do because it gives me freedom to express myself and for my voice to be heard in the creative industry.
