How did you get where you are today?

Favourite quote/ words to live by?
‘You’re a human being capable of achieving anything, the internet has all the information you need, believe in your sauce, and the only person that will stop you is yourself.’

What do you do when you’re stuck for inspiration?
‘Honestly, whenever I’m stuck for inspiration, I just take a step back or even have a break. Inspiration can’t be forced, but you also can’t rely on it. It comes and goes, so that’s probably why I try to power through even when I’m uninspired.’

What challenge did you face in 2020 and how did you overcome it?
‘Adapting my creativity to everything that’s been happening in the world. I went back to basics and worked on my weaknesses, while also focusing and improving on my strengths.’

What are your three essentials for a productive day?
‘Waking up early, a good breakfast, and doing better than yesterday.’
