She is now looking to engage in further professional studies, which she hopes to be able to pass this specialist knowledge onto each and every student that she deals with, to help set them up for the best career possible. Not only that, but being a student for so long herself, some of the encouragement she received from those around her, pushed her to be in the position she is today, and she would love nothing more than to be able to offer the same opportunity to current and future TCA students.

blessing-300x300

She believes that education is the key to success, and applies this to each and every one of her students.

When there’s time between movies, Blessing loves exploring New Zealand on road trips with her friends.
