Hi, I’m Nic Manshon.
Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career. 
If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject. 
Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning.
After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again. That was a good choice!
The journey started out at CPUT, studying industrial design and serving at a local church, heading up the media department. After that, I got a scholarship for digital filmmaking at SAE. I never received a scholarship before so I was super stoked to do the course, not realizing what the future may hold.

Growing up, we're plagued with the incessant question of "What do you want to be when you grow up?". Most of us reply unthinkingly with the answer of a rockstar or a fireman. As we grow older, the answer becomes more based upon our strengths - engineer or accountant. As for me, I can safely say that the question remains unanswerable. But for now, no matter how predictable it sounds, what I want is to be is happy. 

My name is Savannah, coffee-and-beach enthusiast. To start of with, I'm currently a student at Herschel girls school. I'm hoping to study abroad, after a couple months of traveling and exploring the beautiful world we live in.  

Originally I'm from Denmark. Last year I spent a year at a boarding school where I got a feel for the Danish culture and language. It was an incredible experience. That time away from my family gave me a chance to develop a sense of independence and helped me mature into the young adult I am today. 

I'm probably what you would call a stereotypical teenage girl - I love my friends and going out on the weekends. I also have a passion for makeup, and can spend hours looking at eye shadows or trying on lipsticks with my friends. 

But, my social life put aside, I also love reading. I could spend an entire day devouring a good book, my favorites being The Kite Runner and Gone With The Wind. I also have a passion for art. I love drawing and painting, with an array of sketchbooks and drawings littering my bedroom desk. 

My adventures are just getting started, and I look forward to the experiences lying ahead.
