Dandreia Bethel is turning her art skills into a shoe design business. Ms. Bethel recently visited the ZNS News studios to showcase some of her products and to tell her story.

“I started drawing, literally floods of designs started to come to mind so I would draw them and I had sketchbooks filled with them and then I started to pursue it. So I started here locally with a manufacturing company that was here. After going there it was like you need to get more, you need to get more. So I started to search outside of The Bahamas and from there I went to study, I studies in Milan for a year.”

Bethel’s advice to others is “to find something that you love and keep working at it.”
