“For me, my current environment is very different from how I grew up, so it has definitely been an adjustment. There’s a learning curve when it comes to meeting new people and I am fortunate enough that I have met a lot of other creators on the same journey. After speaking with them, I have learned that they experience the same kind of anxiety, which in turn settles my own a bit—knowing that we are experiencing similar things. I have also learned to come out of my shell. While I have anxiety, I am put in a place that forces me to socialise and it has brought me the most amazing friends and opportunities. You could say it has been a blessing in disguise.”
