I never wanted to be a graphic designer- crazy, right?!

In high school, I was passionate about fashion and marketing. It led me to focus on colleges I thought I needed to attend to be considered successful in any sort of way (I cringe at my younger self’s mindset). I applied to the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) to begin a career I thought I so desperately wanted. I was beyond excited when I decided to attend FIT in Manhattan.

Within the first month of college, I knew FIT wasn’t for me…like at all. I craved home and felt like I had failed myself in many ways. My dream life was crumbling right before me.

Where I learned about Graphic Design

The coming years after moving back from NYC were a daze. I was lost and had no motivation to continue school. I decided to attend my local community college, where I received my Associate in Business Administration- but business wasn’t my gig. It wasn’t until I decided to go for my bachelor’s at SNHU that I learned what Graphic Design was.

Fast forward two years, I graduated in Graphic Design and Media Arts. My heart and soul found the career I had been longing for. I decided right after graduating to start my own business- Balsam Hill Studio (my baby!). It was scary and exciting- and honestly, I still feel this way 10 months later, lol. It has been nothing short of amazing, however. There has been a considerable amount of trial, error, and continuous growth, but I don’t regret a damn thing. When looking back, I’ve always loved designing- I just had to figure out in what form.
