Helping Hands

Times SquareHi everyone and Happy December!

This week I wanted to keep it short and simple and brush on the topic of family.

Above all, I feel having a supportive family is key to finding your passions. Somehow I got extremely lucky to have parents who support my interests as well as my career ambitions. It’s not often you find parents who whole heartedly will do everything they can to help you achieve your goals. My parents go above and beyond for not just me but my 5 other siblings. They’ve always taken the time to watch my progress within school and my interests. Even from when I attended my summer classes my mom visibly noticed a difference in my work from when the class started to right when it ended. Having an extra pair of eyes look at my work as well as watch my progress is nice and reassuring that there’s always room for improvement. I mean, if we were all perfect then we wouldn’t be going to school now would we?

My siblings are really supportive as well. I appreciate how they always ask about my classes as well as what I’m doing in them. My 2 younger sisters love crafts and fashion so it’s always nice to be able to share things with them that I didn’t know before going through the Precollege courses.

I’m honestly over the moon grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to attend these classes and gain the experience I have. I know to some it’s not a big deal but not only is it fun for me, I also enjoy learning more about the industry and all the different paths you can take based on your desires.

At the end of the day, whether your parents support you or not, follow your heart and do what you’d like to do. Having the extra support is great but I can only imagine how it would feel to have no one. Though think about it this way, I can assure you that out of the 7 billion people in this world, someone will be interested in whatever it is you have to offer. I’ve been privileged enough to have the supportive parents I do but it goes to show, many successful people out there followed their passions and went out to do what they desired.

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day!
