My name is Onyi Moss and I’m a film director, singer-songwriter and true vintage lover. Originally from Nigeria, I moved to the UK on my 22nd birthday to pursue a career in finance which I succeeded at before deciding to pursue my creative passion in film, photography and music.
Who was your role model in school?
If I’m being honest, I had none. My time through school felt like an uninspiring journey for the most part. I had to imagine a bright future for myself on countless occasions to get me going. It would seem like that was what it took. I suppose you could say the person I aspired to be was my role model de facto.
Describe what you were like at school in three words?
Tenacious, creative and aware.
What’s the best thing about Manchester?
The best thing about Manchester is it’s eclectic nature and the sense of community. It’s an easy city to settle into and call home.
What has been your biggest disappointment?
That would be not pursuing a creative career much earlier.
What advice would you give to your 15 year-old self?
You’re doing just fine. Everything you’re going through at this very moment in time is shaping you into the woman you need to be to achieve your goals.
