''The Linbury Prize is massively important, not just for its support of new designers, but for its overall championing of design. As an emerging designer it can feel overwhelming when you first graduate, but The Linbury gave me an amazing network of mentors and fellow designers with which to share support. It is a unique opportunity to platform your work and and incredible chance to work on a show with a professional company. I felt really supported by the NT and the Linbury team throughout and this has given me much confidence, especially on the face of the pandemic.''
