Well as you've all probably gathered my names Sarah Jane Jackson, from being a young girl I have always had a creative mind. Encouraged and inspired by my older Brother, Dad and Grandma I was always permanently attached to a pencil, drawing and designing everything. Throughout school it continued, and all the way through college where I studied Art, Textiles and Psychology.
Since then my determination and fight to get through the hard times has brought me a long way. Having recently finished off a Fashion and Textiles with Enterprise degree, I have had work experience for New Theatre Royal, The News, and have organised various Fashion shows. I also had the chance to do a project working to a brief set by the fabulous Fashion and Textiles designer Charlotte Taylor.
I am also a keen photographer, I've had work published in the university newspaper, The Galleon. Here I worked my way up from being just a music reviewer and photographer to be elected as Deputy Editor, which made me second in command over a huge team of around 80 people for a year. By doing this it has taught me many things, from CAD skills like indesign, to organisation and team management skills.
Now comes the new venture for me. My main goal is to inspire people the way I have been inspired. To become a Fashion and Textiles designer that is driven by determination and the fight to succeed in life.
