Because there comes a point when the expectations grow so high that there is a possibility of falling into pattern without noticing it. As one of my professors said ‘sometimes you have to take a few steps back and reflect to go forward’.
In high school my art history teacher gave me one advice that totally changed my mindset. She said: “Kid, if you want to get somewhere, get involved in the projects, voluntary work and internships during your college days”. I really took this advice to my heart. One might wonder : Why is it so crucial to do additional art related projects? Won’t it be enough if I just get my degree?
