This photo was taken when I was travelling around Europe in the summer of 2016. More specifically, it was taken on the bridge that took me and my friends to Sziget Festival, on the ‘Island of Freedom’.
This photo represents a period in my life in which I felt happiness and clarity like never before. It was bliss. It was during this period, where I felt at my most confident and free, that I decided to take the plunge, follow my heart, and become a filmmaker. I decided that there would be no half-efforts, no compromise, I would spend the rest of my life working to be the best filmmaker that I could be.
When I came home I told my employer that I would be leaving and I applied for university. In April I was offered a place to study Film & Television at the London College of Communication, from September 2017. I accepted the offer, and here I am.
