I love to sew! If I could earn a living doing what I love, it would be creating fabulous designs or teaching women in need how to create and earn a profit creating beautiful custom made goods. There is no doubt in my mind that at some point in my life; I will be making a difference in someone’s life. Creativity and expressing yourself through art can be rewarding and peaceful to the mind and spirit. I would start by contacting a non-profit organization that helps woman from all walks of life. Teaching the basics of sewing and crafting and then find out what inspires them the most. Inspiration comes in many forms. It can be a picture on a bill board or simply a passerby on a busy street. Learning to make a living by doing something you love can be rewarding. Teaching others how to make their lives better is what I would love to do. Learning a craft in general allows you to make your own money and become independent. In some parts of the world, women are not allowed to get an education and solely depend on their crafting skill to make a living. This is what I call “doing what you love and gaining profit”. One day I will be able to work for a non-profit organization doing what I love. Teaching gives me such pleasure and enjoyment. There’s nothing like the look on a student’s face when a project is completed.
