Happy Independence Day!
It's every freelancers favorite holiday. A day to be thankful for where we are. I've had some struggles over my short life but as I've known since Kindergarden, I'm destined for greatness! Well that and I've always been able to wear a damn good suit. I can't say I've known what I wanted to do in life, I just knew I'd be great at whatever I put my mind to.
My imagination has always been large and in charge. My grandfather showed me the ropes; from music to cartoons, I was fascinated by a lot. Classic Looney Tunes still guide and inspire my vivid imagination. It's something that will always feel the same for me, as if it were new.
Over time some things lose value. However, we must all hold value on certain objects. This may take a toll on your heart, loving the tiniest things forever as if it were your child. The greatest thing I've found out about my cuban roots is that they sure can hold onto objects. Why? Because each object; as small as it may be, tells a story.
A yearbook is all about memories. This book holds the best memories ever created, it is my prized possession. This book was my first book ever created! I joined the yearbook staff in 8th grade, writing an essay applying for the class, beating out several kids for a unique opportunity that forever changed my life.
I can't take all the credit, it was a team effort. Bonding with everyone in that class was a privilege. I would say some of them found their careers close to home as well. May it be editing, writing, or like me. Photography.
That was the first book I created, but it won't be my last. I currently have 2 that I've custom made for my portfolios. Although, one day I'll be on the fine art world creating my own book with a new series to go with it. Either way, I know my true passion in life. Only forward movement now, who know's what's next?
