When you were 17, what did you want to be?
I think early on, probably earlier than 16, 17, I wanted to be a fashion designer. I was really into art and drawing, and sketching a lot in my free time, clothes and dresses and things. I had a sense that I wanted to do something in the arts, whether it was something more like fashion design, or something like becoming a painter or a printmaker. I knew I wanted to do something creative, in line with the art that I had grown up doing and was really interested in.
