Can't tell how motivating this video was. I'm in 12th and I decided to be a designer when I was in 8th grade, but I've got so many friends pursuing fashion designg constantly telling me how tough the game is which somewhere upsets me and makes me drop my passion. But whenever I listen to people like you it motivates me like anything.
