Shot travel Photography
So excited to have received an honourable mention with my finalist cinematic photo submission for the Waterford Film Festival 2021. I'm honoured to have been selected among a very talented group.

The photo is titled 'Travel Partner', which captures silhouettes sitting in front of the Taj Mahal at sunrise in 2019. Check out the finalist images in the link below.

Studied at a Summer school
Had an incredible three weeks taking part in the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) International Summer School, which was based on the theme of 'Containment' and featured incredible speakers such as Beatriz Colomina and RESOLVE Collective. Was very inspiring, and I look forward to meeting some of the group in person soon and collaborating.

Designed a website concept prototype
Today I finished my final interactive online class of 'Web Design for Beginners' by Toronto Public Library's Digital Innovation Hub (DIH). The seven two-hour classes covered the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

It's amazing the incredible free resources you can get through apps like Eventbrite. The biggest challenge however was the time difference, luckily for me the classes were well worth staying up till 2am!
