    My name is Simthandile Mandla and i am a 20yr old Xhosa female from South Africa currently studying nature conservation. I am an artist at heart and have taught myself everything I know .Art technique books are my read and absorbing other artist’ techniques and adapting them to suit my technique is mainly how I have developed my own style.I go to any art gallery within my reach as I have a major love of art and believe (and have been told) that I have a real talent I shouldn’t waste. I am currently studying something that I don’t want to be studying only because it is all I was given the chance to study at the time. I have now realised that I can’t let other people and their beliefs draw the map for my life. I know saving nature and the disintegrating world we live in is an admirable thing to do, but I don’t believe we all have to get a degree for it to do our part. That said I am now searching for someone who is willing to put themselves out there for an aspiring artist. I also have a love for travelling, and in my head I have been all over the world to see art classics, from the Louvre in Paris to the Galleria Colonna in Rome. I know taking on sponsoring an untrained artist on a whim is a difficult and risky undertaking, but I assure you that hard work and talent are a definite path to success. I would like to know what chances I have of receiving sponsorship/a scholarship to study art abroad as this would be my chance to do great things with myself and art.
