What is your biggest success?

I was part of my residence leadership when I started my business. I took 3 months worth of my allowance, plus the stipend I got from the university for being part of leadership and bought myself a Canon DSLR camera. In the year 2021, I won myself a brand new Canon Mirror less camera worth R15000 from a photography competition and I have been using both cameras to get quality pictures. That's my biggest success.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

My biggest hurdle has been my environment. Living in an environment that doesn't understand and support entrepreneurship can be mentally draining that it affects your workflow. This has made me feel worthless and that my passion is only but a hobby but it's not something that can be sustainable.
