At my internship, one of the people that I worked with that I would consider to be a role model is actually an employee there. She works there now and isn’t that much older than me. I am close to her age and she told me about her design experiences and even some advice. She told me that we as designers need to branch out because that’s one of the ways you’ll grow. She told me to trust the process and to believe in yourself. Design is all about self creativity and self-expression. She encouraged me to take risks because sometimes the most unexpected ideas can turn out to be the most useful.
We just have to go for it, if it comes to mind. I find this to be so inspirational because it kind of makes me feel like I can make it if I work hard enough. I’m really happy that I got a chance to meet her and I’ll treasure her advice for the future.
