"I first found out about Goldsmiths when I was searching for well-regarded art degrees in the UK and there was certainly a lot of discussion about the BA course here. After coming to an open day, seeing the studios and learning about the very self-directed nature of their studio practice, I was certain the structure at Goldsmiths was perfect for me. I'm just coming to the end of my second year now, and I feel my work has developed so much as I've been allowed to pursue my own interests and ideas with good critical feedback from both tutors and students.
The atmosphere at Goldsmiths has also definitely helped my confidence as it's a very accepting place where you're encouraged to be yourself, even if it's a bit weird. Being a student ambassador has been equally beneficial and has allowed me to develop a lot of useful skills which I can actually apply to my career as an artist.
I hope to be able to carry on making art after I graduate, supporting myself with part-time or freelance jobs until I'm able to do an MA. I think the entrepreneurial spirit at Goldsmiths has really given me the best chance at succeeding in the art world, as well as the skills to do things by and for myself.
I'm currently organising an group exhibition around ideas of fiction and boundaries that will be held at Lewisham Arthouse. I was able to fund this project through a successful application to the Annual Fund at Goldsmiths. The show will include work from students in several different creative departments at the college."
