Very commonly heard saying, “if a boy is born, he’ll become an engineer, and if it’s a girl, she can be a doctor.” There used to be a time when parents would decide their child’s career on their birthday only. It’s often shown in movies but also portrays our society’s reality.
Parents choosing a professional career for their children was once a societal norm that everyone had adopted until some spoke up and stood against this stereotype to pursue their dream jobs. Realizing the importance of having a diverse career line than your other friends and people around you is what is helping our world become more creative.
Many new fields have originated ever since children have been choosing their careers themselves. A different layer of emotions has been seen being expressed by simply letting children do what they like and enjoy for their living. This wave has also helped people pursue their interests alongside other professional careers as side jobs. For many people who want to build their career in more than one field, it has become possible for them as well.
According to research, people who choose their careers on their own are seen to be more satisfied in their lives than those who follow the instructions of some elderly person in the family. We are not saying one should not opt for degrees in science or mathematics, but if you don’t get the inspiration to do it and you are still doing it because your dad has dreamt of you getting a degree in it, it will not help you stay content in the longer run.
Let us take an example of an artist who has not only broken the stereotype by entering the creative career path but has made a mark in this industry by working around different skills he possesses. We are talking about Miquel Reina – an award-winning creative artist. Miquel has spent his early years learning about various forms of expression through his work. He was able to do it because he had the opportunity to study design at ELISAVA (Barcelona) and the University of Southampton (UK), and he also did a master’s degree in Cinematography at ESCAC (Barcelona).
Reina has worked in diversified fields. When reading about him, we come across many skill sets related mainly to human sciences and the art of expression. As a creative artist, Reina has 14 years of experience working in the designing, advertising, and video gaming industry. He recently started building his name in the writing industry as well.
Be it any area of the creative industry, Reina has proved that he gives his audience one of the best works. From designing to writing, he has always appreciated well-known figures in the creative industry for all his work. Recently we heard about Miquel’s debut novel “Lights on the Sea”, recently represented by the prestigious Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in order to adapt it as a movie on it as well.
Like Reina, other people should focus on their abilities to express their thoughts most beautifully. For that, the first step might seem a bit difficult, but eventually, in the long run, it is what makes your unique expertise come out to the table and make this world a better and more creative place.
