Here’s a picture I took of my table at the portfolio show. I was pretty happy with how it turned out. The overall look at feel was to get people to look through my portfolio which worked out great. There were some very interesting people that came through the show.
But lets get to my thoughts about how I feel after graduating. This was my 3rd time taking portfolio class. The first time I took portfolio I was not ready at all. Mainly because I was finding myself as a designer. Then the second time I was not able to continue because of not having a way to pay for the class.
I am so proud that I was able to make it through easily. One of the things about it that made it easy for me was because I was prepared before the class. The reason for being prepared was knowing that I did not have a choice this time around. Also realizing that I am capable of graduating.
After the graduation ceremony was over I thought ok you graduated from college now what are you going to do? Are you going to continue waking up at 5 am every morning and going further each day? I am not going to think just because I graduated from college I made it which is not the case.
I’ve been applying to many design jobs in Fort Lauderdale where I’m moving to with my brother and sister in the next couple of months. Also I realized the many opportunities I have been missing with not being a member of AIGA. Hopefully I’ll be able to join soon and land a Job in Fort Lauderdale. I’m going to hustle hard to land a Job and continue designing daily.
Before I end this post I just want to say thank you to every single one of you who has followed my blog/left a comment or even read a post or watched a video I posted. Thank you.
