One hundred years today 18 July Nelson Mandela was born. This is my tribute to him and acknowledge all that he achieved Truly a legend and one that will be remembered always.
“IT ALWAYS SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL IT’S DONE”
A few years back I spoke with one of my lecturers about thinking about applying to go to the Elam School of Fine Arts and start my Bachelors Degree. He tried to discourage me and said, “Don’t waste your time ,you will never get in there, they have like 750 enrolments, shortlist to 150 then select 50”. I thought, “who do you think you are, saying I will never get into Elam”. I applied and 9 years later in 2004 I was the 5th person ever to graduate with a Doctor of Fine Art’s from Elam School of Fine Art’s.
It definitely seemed impossible but I have learn’t nothing is impossible, you put your mind and heart into something you want to achieve,doors will open and lead you into a world of wonderful experiences.
