Staking a claim

Here are some things I know to be true and a couple of other things that I’m working on to be a part of my ultimate truth.

I started designing, writing, and editing my own digital magazine during a pandemic. I had an intense urge within me, that sometimes felt physical, to manifest my ideas to fruition.

Every day is a chance for me to face my imposter syndrome head-on – the same one that tells me I’m not worthy to stake a claim in this industry, nor to be so confident in pursuing a romanticised ideology with so little ‘experience’.
