We asked rising stars from the community to open up to us about their end goal. We asked them where they want to be, professionally, by the end of their careers and have shared some of those responses below.

Iannah James-Smit | Graphic Designer

The end goal is being able to inspire the community around me. Not only do I look to run a successful and thriving creative agency, I am thriving to make an impact in my community, giving back the things that I lacked growing up. I have much hope that my agency can be involved in art programs in the school systems as well as, helping entrepreneurs in my local community thrive. I wholeheartedly believe in the saying, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. That quote alone says a lot, together, we are a force. Read more>>

Moye Colquitt | Content Creator , Photographer, Videographer, Director

I want to be a part of creative processes for big brands, national & international.

Ryan Connor | Promoter & Event Specialist

I think that I have a very special career choice for this very reason. I have found that my professional career path is largely based on the success of those that I support. In other words, when a band or artist that I work with has an incredible show, that is a successful moment in my career. By the end of my career, all that I could ever hope for is that I left an impact on fans and artists alike. By creating memorable, impactful events and shows, I believe that there are infinite opportunities to leave a positive mark on the people around me. At the end of my career, I hope that I have made a difference in at least one person’s life. That’s all that really matters to me. Read more>>
