I walked down these halls of The Art Institute learning a valuable lesson along the way: self-discipline. Still, I knew what Professor Hanson said was true..this was only the beginning of learning. I wasn’t there yet. I hadn’t arrived. I never would. But I needed to be closer to my goal than where I was.
I was still searching. Searching for my voice. Searching for my identity. Searching for the truth. Asking myself: Will I ever be good enough to succeed on the next level? I wasn’t sure. I didn’t know. But I was determined to find out.
Today, more than four years later, I know I have a chance.
