Laura Helen's Presentation

Take a Deep Breath: We're All in This Together

What does life look like when we stop pretending we know everything? How does our outlook change after we get down to the hard work of improving ourselves? Graduating design school is just the beginning, and your technical skills will only take you so far.

What's the real trick to success? Coming to terms with who you are, where you fall short, and having the courage to change for the better. I won't teach you how to be a rockstar designer. I will teach you how to be an excellent human.

Incredibly supportive sponsors that we love
