I remember growing up in Scarborough as a super quiet introverted kid with art and craft tendencies.
You would occasionally find a C- in either science, math, or gym on my report card, but never when it came to art.
Art was always my favourite subject in school. I always thought the more effort I put into my art projects, the better (most of the time) they turned out to be. I was a true believer in effort = results when it came to art class.
However, effort = results wasn’t always the case when it came to other subjects in school. Maybe that’s why I eventually ditched all the other subjects and went all-in to study design.
Fast forward to now, I’m still the super quiet introverted kid with art and craft tendencies deep down. What’s only grown stronger is my love for the creative field.
I want to see other quiet, introverted kids with art and craft tendencies to succeed too. If you have a question you think I might be able to help you with, I’m just a LinkedIn connection away.
