Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I am extremely creative and eager to make art. I can work with countless art mediums and add more to my resume on the regular. I have a great work ethic when I feel a job is meaningful long term for myself and the world around me. I don’t like to waste time on things that don’t interest me or benefit me or the majority of people. I am extremely caring and often like to see the best in others. There are so many other things- but for today, that’s what I will say!
