Morella Francis – Viridian Study4Success Award Winner: When asked about the difference that this award will make to her studies, Morella said "I have got enough money to buy the equipment for my course and to go abroad on trips for fashion and design. I want to be a designer, but mainly a tailor, so I definitely need all the equipment for that."
