River Valley High School | Education & Career Guidance Week Programme Interview (2017)
I was invited down by River Valley High School to answer questions the students have with regards to a career path in the Arts. In this interview, I seek to engage and inspire them to be proactive in exploring different career options, appreciate the need to be lifelong learners and add value in their future workplace. I also shared my experiences as a self-taught artist and gave them insights on managing complex challenges, strategically solving business problems and most importantly, the importance of pursuing their interests and making their passion their pay check.
