I like to know how to look at a design from different points of view so that I can know other people might see things.

How do you want to grow as a person? As a learner?

There is always room to grow as a person. I personally would like to learn how to be more of a people person and to be more understanding and open minded to what people have to say. I need to learn to be more accepting of others and more willing to make friends. Becoming more of a people person is something that I am working dilligently on.

I have a hard time learning in class at times because it can be really hard for me to focus. I would like to be able to become a better learner so that I can exceed in my profession and in my schooling. I need to learn a better way to help me concentrate in class so that I can retain information. I generally do really well in class, it just takes a lot of practice and studying.

Idealy I would like to be a graphic designer and some company. I have been going to school to study design and I have also done a design internship and I love it.
