How long have you been coming to Platform?
I’ve been coming since the 28 March 2015. Almost a year now.

What do you do at Platform?
I write songs, rehearse, make beats, record my tracks, chill out in the cafe, meet popular faces like RS and Mandem On The Wall and go in the recording studio to help produce other young peoples work.

How has Platform helped you?
Most importantly gain confidence within myself when I'm performing. It's helped me progress my own work as well as helping out with other young artists. I have so much support within this place and if I could, I would never leave.

What would you say to a young person who hasn't been here?
One thing I would say to a young person that has not been here before is, "TRY IT!" I guarantee you'll love it as much as I do. The staff are lovely and the people that come here are the most inspiring people you can ever meet.

What do you like most?
Platform is it feels like another  home. I can come here to chill out, work on my own stuff and make new friends. Ever since I came here last year, it's just been the most spectacular place I've ever been to... And I wouldn't change a thing about it.

What was the most fun you have had at Platform?
The most fun I’ve ever had at Platform was when I did my first proper performance at the gain Ctrl mixtape launch. The experience of choosing the lighting, backgrounds, the vocal coaching and knowing that people actually come to see me perform is the best feeling ever.
