Dessie Havlin

I am 17 and going into my last year of school. I am studying Maths, Religious Studies, Music, and Moving Image Arts. I have always had a passion for film and music and love to create my own songs and movies. As part of the Media Team I am aiming to showcase some of the amazing Mount Stewart stories through the use of visual arts and get people my age more involved with the culture of the National Trust.
