What does winning this award mean to you?
I am very thrilled to have won this award. I never thought I deserved or even capable of winning such a significant award. During my studies, this award has proven that I am capable of the best and produce the best work that also aligns with my own personal interests and values.
When things were tough, how did you stay focused and not give up?
I always look to the future and do my very best. Knowing that I am doing my best keeps me focused and hopeful. Sometimes just doing it is best and not overthinking it.
What advice would you give to other students who want to excel in your field?
Just do it. Don’t overthink or stress about your capabilities. Fake it till you make it. Give your 200% effort and with time the results will show you that it was worth it.
What are you currently doing in the industry?
I am focused on my studies for the moment but as a hobby I am trying to grow my skills to test my market and capability.
