"Why you not doctor?"
"You doctor yet?"
If you are an immigrant of any kind, or know people who are the children of 1st and maybe even 2nd generation immigrants, you have heard their parents ask them this question time and time again. It probably made you wonder? "What's the infatuation with being a doctor?" Well, it's not so much an infatuation with being a medical practitioner. It's more a desire that immigrant parents have to want their children to be successful and well respected in the new country.
Growing up, I was a pretty inquisitive child. I love to ask questions, take things apart to see how they worked, and I received good marks in school. Naturally, my 1st-gen immigrant parents took this as a sign of, "she is gonna be a doctor." And frankly, I didn't mind the thought. Science classes were my close favorites next to art classes and I loved reading theories, so the idea of being a practitioner of medicine didn't seem so bad.
Therefore, I came to college with the notion that, "I will be a doctor." However, with life many hardships, I changed from a Biology major to a Visual Arts and Art History Double major. Though I am not taking MCAT's now, I am still not exactly sure what I want to do with my life. I do love medicine and after a few months, I may enroll a post-bachelorette program. However, right now, I feel I need to pursue art as much as I can...
AND THAT'S WHERE YOU WONDERFUL PEOPLE COME IN.
Art is expensive. Being able to create pieces and projects is difficult when you are a student in college with a job and internship. So... I opened a Patreon account.
Please check it out, and see if you are interested ( www.patreon.com/waywardgal )
Those who support will get all my works early, have priority on suggesting new work for me to do, PSD, tutorials, workshops and others too !
Thank you !
Also, with X-mas coming up, I will be holding a raffle and commission as I do every year. However, only those who support me on Patreon will be able to enter. Again, I adore all of you! The school semester is about to end... *start looking forward to daily posts
