Finishing IVth form college, I knew one thing – I wasn’t going straight into Higher Education.

I took a leap of faith, moving to Uganda at 18 years old to work in a Primary, in a small town called Kitega, a couple of hours from the capital city of Kampala; and boy was it the right decision!

From learning to live in small confines with other, improving my cultural sensitivity and having a real job, to travelling independently across Uganda, as far East as Kenya, down to Rwanda, helped to shape an awkward teen into a well rounded student ready to tackle Design at University.
