He was always there for me to show the right direction, and I really worked hard and gave my 100%. Everyone needs a direction, especially students because they are young and proper guidance can work wonders for their careers. The same was true for me. Now, I am the chief mentor at Times & Trends Academy, and I am looking forward to not only guide these young students, but also give them opportunities to work on my projects. I am sure they will love it.”

This is just the start, and I want to do so much more as a costume designer.”
