1.    Prior to being chosen to participate in this program, what did you know or hear about the LIA Creative LIAisons program?
I didn’t know anything about it. I only found out about it when it was announced in Campaign Brief that LIA was looking for entries for this competition.
2.    How did you feel when you were chosen to participate in Creative LIAisons, an exclusive program of 100 attendees aged 21 – 30 from around the world?
I was ecstatic, because I’ve never had an opportunity like this to interact and learn directly from so many global legends in the industry, as well as other young creatives like us.
3.     If you were to choose what the speakers present, what topics would you choose?
I’d be really interested to learn about the way the speakers deal with the pressure we all put on ourselves when it comes to making great work. I’d also be interested to see what the speakers would say about the responsibility we have in influencing culture, and how exciting it is to be making impactful work.
4.    If you could choose any juror to interview for two minutes, who would it be and why?
I’d love to chat to Jonathan Westley from The Mill, since their work is so high quality and diverse. They’re behind some of the coolest work that’s being made today & I’d love to get his insights on craft. I would love to know what kind of briefs excite him.
