Rasheed is a 19-year-old student doing Art on a part time basis at Al Madrasa. He is currently studying towards a Foundation in Accountancy (FIA) course at the Financial Training Centre (FTC) in Tanzania. Rasheed artistic journey started with small drawings of simple projects. Gradually his skills improved and he progressed into bigger and better projects that inspire him to achieve more success in life. He believes Art is something that can be created by anyone, but it takes that special observation that only an artist can see and understand and that's where an artist becomes a little bit more special. Rasheed’s words of wisdom are that “If you put some patience and hard work in anything that you want to do, you can create wonders!”
