I believe in following your dreams
I regularly look back at the working class in which I grew up. It was a loving environment but it can hardly be seen as the provider of the ingredients for a guaranteed success story. As from early on I dared to dream, but dreaming wasn’t something ordinary where I came from. Where others got stimulated to study the expectations for me as a woman, my parents just wanted me to become happy. They assumed I would be happy when being a housewife instead of an artist. Regardless I decided to follow my dream and subscribed myself at the Art Academy. Starting out I might not have been the most creative, smart or the most promising student, but my vision was clear! I gave myself some goals and didn’t aim too high, taking it step by step. I found my motivation in myself instead of my environment and I was proud when I achieved my own goals. Each time, it gave me the guts to take the next step. I got addicted to acquiring knowledge and I followed additional courses to feed myself mentally.
A few years later I graduated Cum Laude, being the most promising graduated young artist.
My hard work has brought me where I am today. I made my decisions based upon my own vision on life. Dare to dream, keep some room for the unimaginable and you will see nothing is impossible.
