But even more importantly, as I see and experience an increasing amount of inequality in the world, I look more and more critically at advertising and marketing and work to effect changes in that system from within. I love what I do because it challenges me to be critical of sexist, racist, homophobic, ableist, and otherwise othering attitudes in media and to find new and more empowering ways to reach people.
On top of that, I'm fighting the urge to fuck off and live in the woods, abroad, or in a library. I'm examining whether I've chosen the best path to effect change and make a difference. And I'm trying to express how beautiful and utterly strange this life is.
