Napsugár refelcts on her time studying at BIMM Brighton.
“When I moved from Budapest to Brighton to study at BIMM, I knew that I wanted to make the most of my time there. I didn’t know anyone and I didn’t know what my way into the music industry would be like, but I was determined to make it happen. BIMM has the most amazing opportunities on a shelf, you just need to go and take them – but in order to do that, first you should find out where that shelf is.
So I started volunteering and applying for everything that I could possibly squeeze into my schedule, through which I met some of the most incredible and inspirational people, such as Suzi Ireland, Nicky Kingsbury-Williams and Steve Jones, who all helped me get the opportunities of my dreams and for that I am eternally grateful.”
