As a creative, I’m always looking to be inspired and luckily for me I don’t have to look far.
There’s never a shortage of inspiring things around me. There’s the sky, whether sunny or grey; there are tangible things like books or films with inspiring storylines but my greatest source of inspiration comes from other people.
My mother inspires me to be strong.
My father inspires me to work hard.
My sister inspires me to embrace who I am.
My best friends inspire me to think positively.
My nieces and other family members inspire me to always do my best.
