“Everyone’s creative journey is different. Too often mentorship programs focus on telling you what not to do, as if creativity is a linear, singular path to follow. What might be on my ‘don’t do this’ list, just might be what someone else needs to do! I’m excited to be a Creative LIAisons mentor and have the chance to share what has worked for me while also guiding, listening, and learning from the brilliant young creatives in the program.”
