How did you get your job?
After completing my studies, I applied to get into the teaching service and was called to enter shortly after returning home.
If you could do it all over again, would you choose the same path for yourself? If not, what would you change?
If I could do it all over again knowing what I know now I would still be in the education field and I would also get engaged more in community arts. I have realised that interacting with children and adults to generate meaningful projects for example murals and sets for plays and productions is also a passion of mine. I like seeing persons work together to achieve a goal whether it be creative, or sport related which is still a passion for me as well, being a former National Athlete.
What are some tips for persons wanting to follow your career path?
Some tips that worked for me are:
- Don’t always have a destination in mind.
- I have depended quite a bit on my belief in God and following that direction.
- Once your family support is positive rely on sound advice, too often when you exhibit intelligence you may believe you can do it on your own but that is the biggest misnomer there is.
- The arts in general can be very daunting as opportunities are not always readily available, don’t be deterred by any set back, believe in your innate talent, network, and make every project you do truly represent who you are.
