This past week was my final one at El Camino College. It was a life-changing experience for which I am so grateful. I sacrificed a great deal in order to complete my studio art degree – namely living on a couch in my mother and uncle’s apartment and enduring an untold number of challenges.
Nevertheless, I am proud of the artist I have become. I started with almost no skills and grew to the point where I was accepted into more than one bachelor’s degree program. However, I decided not to pursue a third bachelor’s. I am content with my existing Bachelor’s degrees in English lit and Metaphysics, and my Associates degree in Studio Art. I look forward to increasing and integrating my skill sets through continued classes, workshops, and practice. And I look forward to continuing to grow as an individual. My ultimate goal is to live a life of deep meaning and impact – to be a beneficial presence on the planet in every sense of that word.
I am grateful for all of you readers who are taking this journey with me. I hope you’ll hold me accountable to my highest aspirations, ask me questions if you like, and make a difference in your own communities.
And most importantly – follow your bliss!
