Managing a home, family, friends, work commitments, school, and looking for job opportunities are some “distractions” I faced as these were and still are legit commitments.

My lecturer has been encouraging everyone in my class to submit our works towards festivals and competitions.

The initial feedback from you encourages me to simplify further to create greater clarity, and I feel the financial concern to create the feature out of this concept.
