Hi everyone. I'm a graphic designer. It's my first career out of college (have a bachelors in art) and after doing it for roughly 8 years I've come to realize it's a job that leaves me feeling guilty all the time. I just have a lot of conflicted feelings about trying to sell things to people. Not for me. I really wanted to do something that helps people. I guess I always thought I'd do design for a non profit or something like that. Pipe dreams. I know "helping people" is the most cliché answer to give but I feel like I owe someone out there a moment of relief or happiness in their time of suffering and nursing seemed like a good way to do that. I want to do something good in this world.
My stepmom and dad are RNs. My mom and her husband are CNAs. So I guess the inspiration was there all along. I just wasn't ready to see it until a few years ago when I finally buckled down and went back to school.
