Dream big.

When you are little they tell you to dream big but they don’t tell you how to get there. Doesn’t every little girl want to grow up to be a princess or be special? When we get older we realise that this was all some sort of elaborate hoax. When I was younger I had no preconceptions that I would ever achieve what I wanted from life. My first dream job was to be a fashion designer and I was told I didn’t have the right face. Then it was I want to be a journalist, oh but darling you don’t have the right contacts! Don’t you know that the only people who make it are the ones with the right contacts. Every time I dreamt big, barriers were put in my way by my dad, the best one was you can’t do that you’re a girl. Now on the other side of the world which was a dream I’ve had since I was 6, I’m finding my feet slowly and surely and I’m also realising that his fears aren’t my fears. I don’t fear not making it anymore because how can I succeed if I don’t try? I’m a brilliant artist but I’m lacking the belief in my own abilities so whilst I’m out here living my dream I’m going to explore everything I was told wasn’t possible and really live for the first time in 24 years.
