I’ve loved the fantastic travel opportunities at ACU. I’ve been lucky enough to go to Rome, and I am about to jet off to Venice. ACU makes travelling and studying readily accessible.
I hope to make an impact by entering arts management...I want to help other artists reach their full potential. I understand the ‘struggling artist’ life, and I think my skills are best suited to helping passionate and devoted artists realise their dreams.”
