“Write about who you were… who you are… and who you will be… or write about your “True Self” and how you became who you are.”
I am a woman who never speaks the loudest in a crowd, but I always have a thought in my mind. How I became who I am is a mixture of environmental factors and introspective evaluation. I have, generally speaking, kept to myself for the majority of my life.
With being an introvert comes imaginative possibilities. Due to being alone (mostly by choice, some not) I created a world within a world inside my head, that which became the foundation of my creative writing structure. Fiction, or not, the world(s) behind my writings are important parts of ME – all the persons, places and objects within them included – therefore, my imagination helped me to develop my writing skills – I am a writer.
Along with writing as a form of self-expression, I sketch draw. My sketches are of people, places, and things – some realistic looking, some abstract – from my mind as well as my objective reality. With drawing I can make my stories come to life – past the black and white print – to better understand their reason of creation. my drawings are bits and pieces of me and how I interpret the world around me; putting the world into my own perspective – I am a perspective person and expressionist artist.
I went to school to obtain an education so that I can help others find their way in life and to promote social change with in the society I am in. Along my educational path – although academic – I found bits and pieces of myself. Although I am still unsure what exactly my career path is, I like the ride I am on. I know I will make an impact on the society, some how, and find my independence. I am a social worker – I have to figure out what that really means.
I am a mix of this, and that, a mix of certainty and uncertainty – wishy washy at best. I am determined, focused, despite the confusion. I am, simply speaking, ME.
