For as long as I could remember,
I have had a fascination for art.
As a young child, as long as I had
enough paper and something to draw
with, I was able to spend hours at a time
just drawing from my imagination. In 2007,
after graduating from high school, I decided
to attend a private art college located in
the East Coast. After my first year there,
due to various personal issues, including financial
difficulty, I had no choice but to leave the school. Once I
came back home, I enrolled at a junior college with
plans of transferring to another school. After a year,
with my financial situation getting worse, I decided to
take a break from school. During the next several years,
I tried everything from enlisting in the military to working
as a security guard for a Hispanic bar. In 2013, I was given
the chance to go back to school. A little older, but with more
life experiences, I knew that this was my chance to prove myself.
As a God fearing man, I have no right to waste what he has given me.
