How did you get into debt?
I am in debt because I wanted to pursue a higher education. With tuition costs and living costs so high and no financial aids from the government, I had no choice but to get loans to pay for it.

Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Yes, I believe so. If I wasn't in debt and had my own studio, my work would literally grow in size, and I wouldn't have to choose between a meal or materials.
