Advice To My Younger Self...
What advice would you give your younger self?
I definitely would encourage 80's & 90's me to realize that being creative is a form of intelligence.
After being artsy my entire childhood (see my daring fashion choices!), I followed a path in college to do what I thought was "smart" and pursued academics leading me to law school.
While I devoured and adored my college education in the crazy competitive School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, it shouldn't have come as a surprise that the class in which I got the highest grade in the course's history was... African Art.
It has taken me years to reintegrate artistic pursuits into my life and career, and my creativity has led to me being an ideas person at my PR job.
Making time to blog, write, draw, and dream has brought so much happiness into my life, and I'll continue to make the effort to keep these passions part of my day-to-day.
Funny thing what you think intelligence is as a child... even more funny what people consider intelligence as an adult.
