'The Royal Welsh College has prepared me not just technically, but also collaboratively. It’s instilled in me the value of open-mindedness, flexibility, and the ability to inspire others through music. The training is not just classical but it appreciates all types of music. Nowadays, being a musician isn’t just about having amazing technical skills, but also about how you get on with others. And its important to be able to transmit your technique into inspiration so that others can be inspired by you.

It's about self-belief, believing in yourself and where you want to go with your instrument, and being as involved in as many different things as possible, because you never know what opportunities that will bring for you in the future.

Through projects with the Paraorchestra, who work with non-conventional music, I've had the privilege of working alongside incredibly talented musicians and contributing to groundbreaking initiatives that promote inclusivity and accessibility, and create opportunities for musicians with disabilities to thrive.'
