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.

I am a 19-year old student, studying in the field of Accounting. I have a MASSIVE passion for fashion and music. My goal in life is to pursue a career in Fashion Design as well as Interior Design. After realising my strength in numbers and finance, I have decided to what I’m currently busy with; thereafter, I would like to make my Fashion dream a reality. I look up to my favourite music artist/producer, Martin Garrix. He keeps reminding me to work harder than the next person and never to give up on a dream, because at some point you will pursue. I look forward to living a double-life in Accounting and Finance, as well as become a big part of the Fashion Industry. Not only do I want to be successful in my career, but in life itself – I hope to adopt a baby someday and live the life of a single-parent to show the world that dad’s too can be a strong independent parent.  I am one of the most ambitious people on this planet and have dreams that have masses much larger than what I can handle! The most important things in my life are my friends and family; the things I would do for them are indescribable. As my role model would say: I want to show everyone that if you can pursue your dreams, they can come true no matter what. That is what I want to do. You do not need to be great to start, but you need to start to be great.
