Is there anything else you’d like to add about your work or time at ECA?
I’d like to offer some advice I would have given to myself when I was thinking about applying to uni.
The main advice I would give to myself five years ago would be to stay weird. The things that people make fun of you for at the moment will end up being your greatest strengths and are what make you so wonderfully unique. It's okay to feel like you don't fit in, and that you don't belong - because to be frank, you don't belong, and that's okay! Devote your energy into creating a space through your art where people who don't fit in can feel safe, loved, seen and valid. Stop doubting yourself, your talent and your drive. It doesn’t matter what your tutors or your peers think, what grades you get, or whether your art is considered ‘proper art’ or not. If you enjoy making it then it’s all been worth it. Focus on your happiness first, success will follow.
