As he narrates it, growing up in a place like Nima, is not an easy thing on anyone, especially for the young ones but like him, some beauties can come out of places like that.

Mohammed Awudu, who is now a globally recognized fine artist and painter, shares how his early childhood love for art keeps drawing him to what and who he has become today, even at the points at which he wasn’t even sure this could be his big breakthrough in life.
