      With the Scholarship funding I’ve been able to increase the amount of exposure my music platform has, been able to fund professional videography, photography and finally launched the magazine which was a long-term project I wanted to do.

      It’s not easy to start a business but being in such a supportive environment has really helped tackle some of the challenges that I think small businesses face.
