Graduate M.A.T.C.H Intensifier “TAHI”

I applied for M.A.T.C.H to get back into the creative space of mind

Before this programme, my goal and vision were to be a truck driver but after being involved in MATCH I’m inspired to incorporate animation and dance further than it has been!

Ruana was always willing to do odd jobs around here, it was extremely helpful.

He is a team player and would be a valued addition to any team.
