1. What did you study at Dv8?
Art, Fashion & Design in Bexhill
2. What was your experience of studying at Dv8? What is your favourite memory? 
I loved it, my teachers were amazing and had so much experience with the fashion, art and design field and taught me so much! My favourite memory was probably when I accidentally made the class room smell of melted plastic whilst creating my piece of work for the ‘recycled fashion’ module! 
3. What are you currently up to? 
I am now working with young people with SEND, for a local charity, I get to use my artistic skills within this role as well as my passion for youth work & empowering young people to have a place where their voices can be heard. 
Alongside this, I am launching my own business called “Charlotte-lily Creations” which is an art/graphic design business specialising in low-cost graphics for small charities, businesses and support/community groups & projects.
4. How did your chosen subject at Dv8 help you progress onto what you are doing now?
My chosen subject at DV8 helped me fall back in love with all things creative, as well as learn new skills and techniques. It also boosted my confidence which has helped me pursue the path I’m currently on.
