“As a child, I wanted to be an artist. A fundamental part of being an artist is to create. Briefly in high school, I wanted to be a chef. In college, I wanted to become a dietitian and a photographer. I became a dietitian, a photographer, and a blogger. For a living, I now create blogs and other content, manage social media platforms for a dietary supplement company. I create content for two blogs of my own. But most importantly, I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do: I’m creating.” – Holli Lapes
