My road in life took a while to figure out.
During COVID-19 I developed a medical condition
I was able to overcome my medical condition and gain and renew my self confidence.
Returned to college but I was unsure of a major and started to explore.
Decided on a major, did lots of research on studio arts, and went above and beyond to be prepared for what awaits for me in the future.
