10 Year Challenge! What were you doing in 2009? How did it help you reach your current position?

What question should we have asked? What’s the answer?
What’s the most creative thing you’ve ever done?
I want to hear this answer more than answer it myself. But I love photography storytelling. My grandmother sparked this by taking me on photo dates when I was a young teen: churches, street art, and gravestones. She sent a photo project I mocked at 10 (a catalogue of sorts) to the company who promised me a Marketing job when I came of age. We could all learn more about ourselves by harnessing what makes us creative (and having a cheerleader).
