What inspires you as it relates to your dream?
I'm inspired by individuals who take action despite their fears, pursuing what their hearts beckon them to do. I find joy in discovering stories of people who embark on fresh beginnings, explore new hobbies, and transition to different careers - anything for the sake of creativity, joy, and wonder—all in the pursuit of creativity, joy, and wonder.
