My first boss used to always tell me I was a unique person because I have a strong creative side and also a strong intellect. He would always say in his experience people are usually one or the other but I had a good mix of both. So I’ve always held on to that.
I moved to Sydney to study a bachelor of design at UNSW but left after a week. I called my parents in tears and moved to Canberra the next day. I just had a realisation moment that my creative side is my outlet/hobby but not my career.
