Why are you into Advertising?
Well frankly I finished college with English Literature and at that time the three professions were teaching (which meant I had to study more)  journalism (which I was not keen on) and advertising (that like everyone else thinks I thought was yummy to do).

Did you attend school for fine art or design or Communications?
I did a diploma course in copywriting. That kind of initially outlined even if it was scratchily so an idea about the business .it also made me do an assignment that got me a job at DART advertsing
