Can you tell us a little about yourself and how you ended up studying at Central Saint Martins?
My current degree in Textile Design is actually my second, after having studied Politics at the University of Bristol before moving up to Manchester to train for legal qualifications.
I'm originally from Potters Bar in Hertfordshire, so found a job closer to home in London, before deciding that I wanted to study textile design.
How long have you been studying there?
My journey began with the Textiles Portfolio short course, it was during this that I found a passion and decided to apply for the BA (Hons) Textile Design degree course. I was lucky enough to be accepted and have just started in my second year.
What made you enter the Student Design Competition?
I thought it would provide a really useful experience in completing a self-led project and would allow me to put into practice some of the skills I'd learnt in my first year of studying.
I wanted to do something that would push me out of my comfort zone, by submitting design work for aesthetic judgement outside of my course environment.
