  • As a fundraiser for Make a Wish, I thought it would be a good idea to use my network and passions to fundraise money. This is why I creates Show a Wish! , which was an artistic show featuring a wide range of artists, from musicians of the Royal Academy of Music to World Dance freestyler Voodoo. My aim was to make people discover types of arts they would not normally see by themselves ( so for example, a person interested in classical music would come for the violonists and the contemporary dance performance but would also see spoken word and freestyle).
