AYSE Speaking at ESAD

Posted on February 18, 2013


It feels like yesterday when I decided to don’t go to college and start freelance, this was a big decision and I didn’t thought about it twice, I was pretty sure thats what I wanted to do.
What I didn’t knew is that 6 years later I was going to be speaking at one.

Last month I got invited to speak to a 3rd Year Communication Design Class in ESAD, which is, in my opinion, one of the best colleges in Portugal.This all started when Diogo, a student, decided to do a presentation about me and my works. He contacted me a few months ago and I was flattered about it.
I got to meet him in ESAD one day and I gave him a few works and posters so he could use them in his presentation.

His teacher got to know me and my work trough his presentation and wanted to see me in person so we could talk about the opportunity of me going to the school to talk to her class. Once I got this news I was beyond excited!

My visit there had the intention to show to her students my passion, my works, my freelance story, how did I made it without a college degree, if I had some hard times and if possible give them some inspiration and positivism.

With the few time I had I grabbed a few works, t-shirts, flyers and a couple images and did the best I could. It was my first time doing this so I was a bit nervous I won’t lie.I got to answer a lot of questions that the students and the teacher had. I hope I gave them a bit of inspiration, rather than just two hours of pure boredom.

It was a great experience, I would love to do this again. It’s great to being able to inspire people.

I would like to say thanks to Prof. Ana, Diogo and everybody that showed up once again for everything.
