Natalie Mann

My sight loss has forced me into becoming someone I didn’t choose to be, and, for a very long time I didn’t want anything to do with the ‘new’ me. Complete and utter denial, bloody mindedness, sorrow, anger, grief, fear and stress (don’t forget the stress) became my emotional default setting. I had put myself well and truly in the ‘why me’ zone.

For the Royal Opera House Design Challenge competition I chose to create a rotating German expressionist set design, which included distorted buildings that weren’t to scale, reflecting the overwhelming and violent nature of society.

I worked for BT for 19 years, but I’ve always had a love for music. I didn’t enjoy my job as much as I used to and really wanted to study, but I didn’t quite know what. But as soon as I saw that music recording and production was a possibility, it was almost like an epiphany, everything else just stopped and I knew I had to come here.

I set up the Sussex Vegan website when I was 17. I was recently invited to visit Google UK offices in London and was fortunate enough to meet Ronan Harris, the managing Director of Google UK and Ireland.
