Photographer: Stuart Griffiths
I am originally from Brazzaville and came to London at a young age. I feel very lucky to be living here in London where we can learn from different cultures and live in a meritocracy. But I think the most significant advantage is that we have a good education system because it provides for even the poorest students to achieve.
In the future, I see myself not just changing my life but also the lives of those around me for the better and also changing the label given to youth around the country. My deepest aspiration is to become an actor. So hopefully I will be able to walk the red carpet someday.
Stuart [Griffiths] made me feel very comfortable when taking the pictures. I was able to be myself and not pretend to be someone I'm not. Although at first it was long and tiring, considering the number of shots he had to take, I was happily surprised by the passion, time and effort he put in to take the picture. Now I understand that you have to take a lot of pictures to find the perfect one.
