Congratulations on winning the Rob Stringer Scholarship. What does this level of financial support mean to you?
It means that I can pay my rent without having to go out to work - if I had to work I wouldn’t be able to spend as much time on my studies, so it’s great because it means I can focus on my studies, and I don’t have to worry about how my rent’s going to be paid.
Rob Stringer is a Goldsmiths graduate himself who has made a big name for himself in the music industry. As a musician yourself, what does it mean for him to have seen some promise in you?
To have a CEO of Sony Music Group recognise me in this way definitely means a lot. It’s good in terms of where my music’s going because it’s a good opportunity for the future – it means he’s seen my face!
How did you find the process for applying for the scholarship?
It was very straightforward - I had to explain how it would benefit me financially, and of course there were a lot of other people that applied, which meant that I had to explain how it would benefit me more than them. It worked out well for me!
