Self-expression to me, is the reason why I exist. I love art, in all its different forms. But my most favourite extension of art, is design. To create something that not only looks good, but also has a clear purpose, is something that I absolutely adore. Design brings me at peace, it makes me realize that all my problems in life are trivial. Because as long as you can do what you love, then even the bad days aren’t all that bad.

Fitting in is something I have never done in my life. I always thought that this was a bad thing, untill, I was introduced to the world of designing. For the first time in my life I felt I was accepted. The more your designs and your ideas “don’t fit in”, the more people love them. To work in this crazy world of design, being surrounded by people that are just as passionate as I am, is the thing that truly brings me joy unlike any other.

The greatest privilege I have is that I get to collaborate with other talented designers. Talent has no boundaries, it is everywhere and within everyone. You not only get to work with talented people, but you also get to discover their rich cultures. As designers, we are trained to discover new worlds by challenging the status quo. That provides us with the right mindset to become great explorers.
