1. Activity: Select two photos that represent your present and future career statuses
In this exercise I considered the metaphor of building blocks. I believe that I have a lot of the building material — skills, interest, and work ethic — to get to the point of *becoming* the built structure, the useful item, the valuable thing.
In the 2nd duet of photos, I considered how I have recently been a fainted, injured, dependent person — with family and health issues, a slowing freelance career — and where I want to be in the future is like the buddha, an independent, self-understood, healthy and calm soul.
The process to get from the first photos to the second I believe involves organizing my building blocks, making a plan for how to put them together, and showing others how they can be used. I.e. my portfolio.
Who am I? I am a visual designer working with Adobe Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Animate, After Effects, and Premiere.

|Identity||Leila Salim||Leila Salim|
|Channels||linkedin, website||facebook, instagram, tumblr, discord|
|Content||not updated very well 😕||activism commentary, calls-to-action, memes, personal comments|
At the moment, I do not differentiate between my personal and professional on the internet. I don’t have a particular avatar or code name I use on the internet very much. I tweet about my activism work as well as baseball and memes. I do the same on facebook. I think I need advice on how to better separate these.
