'The main aspect of the academy I liked was that it allowed me to think about myself and what I have to offer in a way in which I have never done before; identifying what my core skills are and how to apply them in the creative industry. I also liked the opportunity it provided me with to meet so many great, like-minded people and connect with them on a professional and deeper level'
