What are you currently doing Genevieve, we hear you are going off to Japan soon?
I'm 21 years old and have recently completed my degree in Fine Art from the University of Wales Institute in Cardiff. In my second year studying there, I went on a three month placement to Nantes, in France, and it was there I realised that I enjoyed travelling and living abroad. After graduating I spent three months working in New York and I am now living in Japan.Travelling has become my hobby indeed.
You made your digital story in Denbigh, quite far away from where you will be going to. Why did you choose to tell this particular story?
The story I chose to tell is an insight into my childhood growing up in the hillside of north Wales and how it has shaped the person I have become. To some degree this sense of adventure is still with me now. Even though I enjoy travelling around the world, there is always a constant pull back home, and Llandrillo is my home no matter where I am. I hope I have shared some of the magic of my childhood which I'm sure was made possible only through its location. This story seemed particularly relevant as I was living at home for a few months after returning from America, and before moving to Japan, and this time at home confirmed all my affection for north Wales.
How did you find the whole experience?
Making this Digital Story was an amazing experience, I learnt so much new stuff my head hurt, but at the end there was an enormous sense of achievement and having something solid to express feelings and ideas visually is incredibly motivating.
