1.    Prior to being chosen to participate in this program, what did you know or hear about the LIA Creative LIAisons program?
To be honest, I was not aware of the program until the RARE application was shared with me.  As I learned more about this opportunity to interact and learn from creative leaders, I was excited at the possibility of being selected.
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 was ecstatic to be selected and eager to make new connections not only with industry leaders, but with other attendees as well.  At the same time, I felt a bit nervous and I am eager to make the most of the opportunity.  
3.    When sitting in on statue discussion judging what do you hope to learn?
I hope to gain insight into the judging process and what makes the best work stand out among so much content. Also, exposure to such work can provide inspiration and motivation for future projects.
4.    If you could choose any juror to interview for two minutes, who would it be and why?
I’d like to interview Wilf Sweetland, CEO of Sweetshop, so I could ask how his company manages to maintain the experience and unique perspective of a boutique production company while operating at a global scale.
