I decided to go into the Graphic and Web design program at John Abbott college because being creative has always been something I enjoyed. When I was younger I liked to draw often even if I wasn’t Picasso it was cool to let my imagination run wild. Now that i’m older I don’t have as much time to draw but I still find myself being creative whenever i have the time. Taking pictures and editing them in aesthetically pleasing ways is something enjoy doing. I like Drawing, both traditionally and digitally when I have the time. I love listening to music and appreciate everything artistic about it from the album art, music videos, photo-shoots and merchandise/ logos… etc.
Currently I’m in my final semester of the Graphic and Web Design program and that means the time to go on stage is quickly approaching. With that in mind I can’t say that I have an exact idea of where I would like to go for stage. My biggest hope is to end up somewhere were I can really put the stuff I learned in the past three years to good use. I hope that I won’t end up filling in some excel sheets all day. Ideally I would be interested in doing some illustrating, photo editing, video editing and pretty much anything involving the creative side of graphic and web design. Although these are my preferences I wouldn’t mind dabbling in more technical stuff like web. It might be a good opportunity to polish my skills and learn more about the field of work.
Once I successfully graduate from John Abbott college I hope to find a full time job in my field. I want to jump right into the work force and start gaining experience with the idea to find a job that would best suit me. After a few years I may go back to school to further enhance my skills. If I don’t go to school, I will most likely stick to a career path that I enjoy and that works for me. I must say it is kind of scary to me not really knowing exactly where I’l end up in the future. However it is also very exciting and I cant wait to see whats in store for me!
