What I learned from Pablo Picasso
I learned that, all people start off what they want to be as a child, it all matters if they still are doing it once they get older. Do what you want, it makes you who you are, and make you happy. As long as your happy it doesn't matter what other people think. So be unique and do what you truly want to do.
