"It has been an incredible journey creating our final pieces as part of the Ahead of the Curve commissions. We are especially proud of Bittersweet Talks, a new segment we launched as part of this project. Through this segment, we were able to meet and interview so many amazing people and share their stories on our platform.
We are very grateful to MAV and the Ahead of the Curve team for selecting us to be a part of this program. The whole experience has been amazing and has allowed us to grow significantly as young creatives of colour."
