1.    Prior to being chosen to participate in this program, what did you know or hear about the LIA Creative LIAisons program?
Prior to being chosen to participate I knew that the Creative LIAisons program was a great opportunity to meet other young creatives from around the world and learn from experienced creatives of all walks of life and disciplines.
2.    How did you feel when you were chosen to participate in Creative LIAisons, an exclusive program of 100 attendees aged 21 – 30 from around the world?
I felt a sense of pride knowing that my agency values my work and my presence at this agency enough to send me to an event such as this to continue to foster my creative abilities. It’s a privilege I take rather seriously.
3.     If you were to choose what the speakers present, what topics would you choose?
One topic I’d love to hear about is the future of advertising in relation to the legal sale of marijuana. As more and more states legalize it, I’m interested to see how advertising will get involved. So I’d love to hear the perspective on that from more seasoned professionals.
4.    If you could choose any juror to interview for two minutes, who would it be and why?
I would like to interview Jimmy Smith. As one of few African American creatives in advertising as a whole, I’d love to get some insight from Jimmy on how he moved up in the industry. I’d also just like to hear some of the behind the scenes from him on how some of his best pieces of work came to be; particularly in selling the work to the client.
