oh I should also add….I had no idea that people were PAID to work with people with disabilities…my grandparents and other family members took care of people with disabilities ona regular basis throughout my life…..So I was just always hanging out with them….I thought it was a “goodness of your heart” thing…
But now, doing it, I see why payment is necessary…it is a difficult job (still love it)….but can be trying…

I have known since I was about 8 or 9 years old that I wanted to do art for the rest of my life. So I was lucky in that respect, but I really had no idea what I wanted to do with that passion and the skills I had in it. I just kind of floated along for a while, and I endured many years of people telling me that doing art was useless and that I would go nowhere with it.
I didn’t figure out that Graphic Design was what I wanted to do until I was about halfway through my actual BFA degree, when I started snapping up awards for my work and people were actually approaching me for freelance work and advice. I stopped and thought to myself,”Wow. I can actually do this.”
I have a very Type A personality and a flair for visual organization, so I really began to see that I could help out the small business by shaping their brand and making it professional so that their customers would respond positively.
