Anything Is Possible

Hello everyone, my name is Sharon Mapuvire and I'm a freelance fashion designer based in Harare, Zimbabwe. The Skillshare team invited me to be a part of the teaching community and I felt it would be a great platform to share my skills and talent because I have developed ways of creating designs through computer programs in easy ways applicable to anyone. Making it possible for anyone to design whatever they have in mind without ever knowing how to draw.
