About the speaker
Andy is one of UNYP's bachelor's students. He studies psychology and aims to achieve a masters degree in clinical psychology afterwards. Andy's goal is to be able to open his own psychotherapy office one day, and hopefully also his own coffee shop that would host open mic nights and attract poets from all over the world.
In addition to his academic ambitions, Andy has been a songwriter, author, and poet since the age of 9. He won the Emirates Festival poetry award in Dubai, and has done his fair share of live slam poetry performances. He took it a step further when he moved to Prague and opened his own poetry club, Papers & Ink, hosting open mic nights and workshops.
Andy believes in combining his twin passions for mental health and poetry, as he is convinced that the combination can provide a healthy outlet for any negative emotions that a person can have residing within them. It is his goal to help people, whether through his poetry and music or through his mental health work.
