On my 13th birthday my mother drove off without me. It was only after she arrived at work that she realized I was not in the backseat with my birthday balloons. Much to her relief, she had not dragged me 30 minutes down the road with my jacket caught in the car door. I was actually in the parking lot across from my brother's bus stop about 15 miles away attempting to call her on my pre-paid flip phone.
Ever since then, I talk while in the car.
I also like advertising.
My journey began when I was about 10 years old and my brother brought home a bootleg copy of Photoshop CS3 from his Web Design class at school. I learned how to use the selection tool to place different colors and I used it as a coloring book. From then on, I taught myself how to use Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Bridge, Premiere Pro, Animate, Dimension and Experience Design and I am always eager to learn more.
I aspire to be a student in an amazing graduate program and obtain a career in a top advertising agency soon after graduating. I am confident that my education and life experiences will prepare me to work at a leading advertising agency and leave my mark on the advertising industry.
