Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Parents:

    You don't want to be a starving artist. You're too smart for that, you should be a doctor or lawyer.

  • How I responded:

    Art is not a fall-back for less intelligent people. Just because you're good at math doesn't necessarily mean you should pursue a career in it. It means you're a problem solver, and that can be applied to a ton of creative occupations.
