I always thought that I wanted to become a doctor when I "grew up". My reasoning (helping others, a higher sense of respect, tons of money, etc...) wasn't out of the ordinary. I think that being young and naive to the amount of dedication and work that it takes to become a successful physician played a part in my career goal. The beginning of college last year was also the beginning of my slow drift from the medical field. I did notice, however, that my love for art and fashion never dwindled. In fact it just grew, especially since creating Undiscovered Worth.
Fast forward a few months to Christmas 2011 holidays when I published my first post on Undiscovered Worth. Never in a million years could I have predicted that it would have turned into what it is now or that it would mean as much to me as it does. I've learned to so many things about myself ranging from my personal style to skills I didn't even know I had. What started out as just some hobby to save me from boredom has turned into a real love and passion.
Since that first post in late December, I began realizing (and accepting) the fact that my life is more fit for fashion and art. With that being said, I've decided to major in Graphic Design. Did my fashion blog derail my career goals? Yes. Do I regret it in anyway? Nope. I count it a blessing that I realized what I really want in life. I'd rather sacrifice money and do what I love instead of making a ton of money doing something I hate.
Knowing that there's a big possibility that things may get hard and I may just want to give up and quit is always in the back of my head. But I know it will all be worth it in the end.
