Between 2011 – 2014, I was studying at the University and got my Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Special Education Needs, Speech Therapy, so I’m a speech therapist and teacher. I always thought I wanted to be a psychologist and by the end of the BA, I had a break, you know the moment when I suddenly realize, that I wanted to do something completely different in my life.
Suddenly, everything I did till then, felt off and I didn’t feel like working in a school or having my own speech therapy office is my dream. Anyway, I finished the studies in July 2014 and went on vacation for a month to Lisbon, Portugal.
Finding my true passion (or rather realizing that I have it all along) was challenging. Deep down, I always knew I wanted to be a Graphic Designer, but everyone was saying that I have to draw perfectly to be a designer and drawing wasn’t my strong point. In middle school and in high school, I loved subject called Informatics when I learned about hardware and software and I enjoyed doing basic HTML sites.
After few months of learning and doing some test websites in WordPress, I’ve realized that I enjoy creating graphic designs for those websites more than the coding part. Nowadays, I’m still coding, but now I spend most of my time designing sites and styling them with custom CSS, editing PHP and so on, not developing from scratch.
