When I was a younger, I had a dream to become a professional basketball player. I wanted to sign autographs and constantly be in the spotlight. My hoop dreams faded away when I realized that all the sweat would mess up my hair everyday. Not only that, I wasn't the most athletic player so I didn't think I had a good chance. My greatest skill on the court was how I used my mind and that's where it led me to becoming a copywriter.
I wasn't the tallest or the fastest so I had to be creative with my mind in order to contribute to my team. I used my words as well as my charisma to motivate others. As a copywriter, I learned that that same creativity can be applied through concepts and visuals. Words don't care about height or weight but rather how well sentences are put together. I realized I can make that same impact to a creative team while also keeping my hair intact too.
