Ever wondered what a 17-year-old Nigerian girl obsessed with art and Bollywood can do?

I have always wanted to be an artist. Especially the graphics field. When I was younger my mom used to burn my drawings and mostly throw them away because "it was messing up the house". Funny thing is, I wasn't discouraged. I would buy margined books and sketch for eternity on them and later sell them in school for a discounted price.

One time, my aunt pointed out an article in the newspaper, it contained an art contest which I later participated in and won after losing in the first year. I came out first in all of Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt in Nigeria, I was given some price packages which helped my parents to encourage my art. In the package was a laptop, that helped start my digital journey. I am self-taught, and now have an Android phone which I use to draw with my thumb and index finger. No light pen, no Stylus. I don't have a tablet, and all the artworks are done with my fingers. I admit that I am obsessed with Indian Culture and society, so my nickname is "Bollyfreak".
