Passion, discipline and dedication are the watchwords of being successful – not only in this industry but also in being a better human.
Everyone is really lovely and really encouraging. I’ve got good teachers – they’re nice people and they don’t talk down to students.
I’ve learnt that the best thing you can do is get your head down, work hard and put in the hours – it’s worth it.
