I've always loved computers and internet ever since I was a little kid. I remember when my parents bought a desktop computer (those big machines, remember?) I could not stop drawing on the Paint app. Literally.
I loved internet so much that I had blogs, fotologs, myspace, etc. I actually designed the templates from scratch playing with coding and HTML.
We are talking about a 7 years old girl!
Despite that, when it was time to choose my career at 17 years old, I decide to go with Law. It was a bad decision.
I started having panic attacks, my anxiety was through the roof, and I was starting to develop symptoms of depression. I searched for help and started therapy (always look for help if your mental health is not ok and you are struggling!)
One day I decided it was too much: working with something I hated, and in a place I felt I didn't belong.
So I packed my two suitcases and told my dog we were going to move 5,135 miles to somewhere new.
I went from being a corporate lawyer in Brazil to my dream career: a Brand Identity Designer & Social Media in Canada, and I could not be happier!
