My aspiration is to be a changemaker through the arts. I am convinced that we young people are in charge of creating a better planet, and the arts are one of the most powerful tools we can contribute with to this change. I want to continue to pursue my artistic and changemaker career through collective art initiatives that generate positive change locally and abroad. I want to help make the world a more conscious, fair and equitable place for all living.
