On the 23rd of June I was honoured to receive the Bursary prize from Professor Jimmy Choo himself. This was granted for outstanding commitment and achievement in my studies (Fashion) in such a short space of time. Some of you know know I moved to at Arts specialist school in January this year to complete my Alevels, which was 4months behind the rest of my class mates as they all entered in September. However with the glory of God despite all the negative talk about the difficulty to catch up and achieve the grades my peers had got due to late timing. I was able not only catch up but SUBPASS the majority of people in my class producing work on a level that they could even comprehend, it really its just grace and thank God for blessing me with the ideas and devotion that won me this prize.
Also due to this achievement I have been given a place to showcase some of my stuff at the AFLW 2015 which is literally a testimony, because the last time I showed their was in 2013 in which I opened the show. Then ever since I said I wanted to show gain but due to education and other matters i was too busy. Then this year came and i wanted to show but I missed the deadline which really upset because it meant i would have to wait till 2016. But this came up so y'all should expect to see me there between the 7th and 8th of August.
Lastly I have had a lot of questions from the press asking what I will be spending the £500 on, and really I do not know yet but I am traveling to Paris in the Fall for fashion show during Fashion so maybe there, then I have changed my plans from going to New york in September till next year so we'll just have to see.
ps. don't mind my face I wasn't expecting an award so I didn't bother wearing make up lol.
