Made it to the Top Talent! Someone pinch me 🙈 I'm extremely, deeply humbled to have my work chosen and be recognised among thousands of brilliant and talented creatives from all over the world. And as always, thanks everyone for your tremendous support! 🙏 . Two years ago I walked into a design class for the very first time, being the only one with almost zero knowledge on how to use any Adobe program. I nearly gave up then, thinking "I'm not good enough - these are all beyond my ability". One and a half year later I tried digital art for the very first time and even then I almost gave up too, saying "it's too much for me". . But one of the best decisions I've made in my life is choosing not to give up, choosing to let go of all the doubt and believe in myself, just like those who put their faith in me, because you're never not good enough. It takes faith and courage, but after countless of sleepless nights learning and figuring things out, it all made sense. After receiving the honor of being one of the Top Talents, it all made sense. . This is to all of us - do not ever give up. We're all extraordinary beings with extraordinary potentials. We're strong and capable, and therefore we need to believe in ourselves and constantly work on being the better us. We have yet to see what's in store for us, so why deny yourself the chance of unleash all your greatness and potentials by giving in to your fears?
