For as long as I can remember, I always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. I loved drawing. The excitement of pens and paper was almost embarrassing. My father's sudden death in 1999 reminded me how short life really is. Because of that, I knew I should begin not only loving myself but also never being satisfied with anything less than doing what I loved. It was the most important turning point in my life. As a single parent, I became a student at the University of North Alabama. In 2006, I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BFA in Graphic Design.
