Newton is the final artist featured from our 2013 Christmas Cards. He is a student in Kenya and is working hard to achieve his goals.
What was the inspiration behind your Christmas drawing?
I was inspired by the story of the birth of Jesus Christ.
Where are you in your schooling?
I am in my final year of college. I am pursuing a diploma in interior design and have achieved this entirely through the endless support of my sponsor, who sends extra funds for my studies.
How did sponsorship change your life?
Sponsorship has given me hope that I will have a better life for me and my family. The sponsorship has also helped sharpen my art skills through my studies.
What dreams do you have for your future?
My dream is to continue practicing art and probably starting up an arts center where I can inspire people and teach them about art and design. I also would like to open a design firm.
