MISSPOKEN BY EMILY EVANS
The first time in Dr. Friedman’s office hours I blurted out the words “And that’s why I hate this class” after he showed me the beautifully crafted wooden ship someone had built for their portfolio.
Immediately, I turned bright red when I realized my frustrations were missing a filter.
That morning I did not understand creativity. When I looked at that ship, I was intimidated because I was comparing my creative capabilities to someone else’s.
Since then, I’ve learned creativity is unique.
Creativity dies when you seek for validation. In order to be successful, you must know who you are and be confidant in who you are.
The greatest thing I’ve taken away from this class is; to take a creative risk, you must lose the fear of being wrong.
