I was always a common. I was invisible. I was wimid and quiet. I was too aware of what others thought of me.But Now it’s different. Being surrounded by so many dverse individuals who value themselves as who they are and what they are Ive learned to see myself as an individual. RISD has taught me to be brave and bold. Not to be afraif. To overcome my shyness and be myself. To be confident and to be me. What it means to be me. What it feels like to be “Heeju” I’ve learned to be a groundbreaker of my own life.
