'Yet it was during that second year project that a world of linguistic possibility opened up to me. A world of words, imagery and rhythm. A world that was nothing like my own, yet filled with feelings and emotions that I recognised and understood.
A world that allowed me to truly enjoy the muscularity of language.
To enjoy how it felt in my mouth, how it exercised my jaw and my tongue, how it could soar and fly when coming out of my mouth, a world where eloquence is everything and people have words and phrases at their command ready to use without pause or ponderance.'
