I was 8 years old when I knew, that when I grew up, I wanted to be a storyteller.
I always enjoyed Creative Writing, and I always enjoyed Art.
In my first year of college, I was one of a small group of students who were chosen attend a special 'Creative Writing' day, and the next year I was really excited to be chosen to attend a week long 'Art' course. That was the same year I joined the school camera club.
Instead of doing a photography degree at University, I did a Batchelors in Business Studies, majoring in Business Development. This was all about being an entrepreneur and thinking innovatively. I also did a Certificate in the Arts, and did papers about 'Creativity' including, Creative Writing and Story Telling.
So did I grow up to be a Storyteller? I believe I did. There is so many similarities between Creative Writing and Photography.
A wannabe photography storyteller ;)
