Natasha grew up in St Vincent & the Grenadines before moving to South Wales in 2004. Never destined for a traditional 9-5 job, she had always been a very creative person when she first encountered The Prince’s Trust Cymru, which helped her turn her creative vision into a reality.

"My journey with The Prince’s Trust Cymru started when I was encouraged to sign up to the Enterprise programme. The programme helped me turn my creative vision into a reality, and that vision was nGraves; a bespoke craft business, creating items from concrete and upcycled materials.

The Trust were the first people to ever say yes to me. They helped me see that behind my struggles with dyslexia, depression and anxiety, that I was passionate, hardworking and that I wanted to help others through art therapy.

Natasha's vision was to set up nGraves - a bespoke craft business, creating items from concrete and upcycled materials. Through her business, she organises weekly art therapy sessions for a diverse range of people across South Wales, from children with complex needs to residents of assisted living facilities.

"Art has long been my method of self-care, and now I have the opportunity to show others how art and getting creative is fantastic for a person’s mental wellbeing."

Alongside her work on nGraves, Natasha decided to give back to by becoming a Young Ambassador; sharing her journey at local events. Natasha will also be supporting The Prince’s Trust Cymru by hosting a Great Create party in March.

I think these events will be a great bonding experience for people in the month of March, bringing people together who wouldn’t normally come together to express their creativity. Getting creative with upcycled material is very accessible, both on budget and ability, and I hope each Great Create party will allow people to have open conversations and nurture positive mental wellbeing across the country.

"As for the future, I hope to continue knocking on doors and bringing my unique style to more and more people across the world."
