Happy Women’s Month! To celebrate the power of the feminine perspective, we asked nine women freelancers to illustrate a career-defining moment. Here’s what elyluu had to say:
“A defining moment for me was when I was working an underpaid job in a design studio and my work was constantly diminished. They made me feel like I didn’t matter. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I decided to work harder on my free time and create a strong portfolio. It wasn’t long until I felt confident and courageous enough to take the freelance leap and quit my job. It hasn’t always been easy, but it’s totally worth it”.
