My name is Jael and I’m a budding young female creative, ready to take on the world.

I started out as a graphic designer, but found my love for art direction thanks to D&AD.

I like to create work that can inspire and hopefully trigger change.

If I could be any animal, I'd be an octopus as I'd be able to do 8 things at once.

I was dubbed as the young Picasso at primary school and started charging for sketches and drawings. 

My hunger and drive is what pushes me forward every single day.
