In caring, let us not judge
In sharing, let nothing be hidden
IN giving, we ask for nothing in return
I graduated with a degree in banking and finance and worked as a financial planner for 5 years before realising that was not the career for me. I should have know when I took a career suitability test and the results showed that finance was the second last option.
Having left the financial industry, I didn't quite know what I wanted to do next. I thought of picking up a new hobby or trying something new. So I turned to Pinterest and that was where I found my love for concrete crafting. In short, Pinterest saved my life!
I believe every family has their fair share of problems but for me, I choose to look at things positively and channel my energy on what I like doing. I believe that there is a reason for everyones behaviour, be it good or bad and that we should not be so quick to judge. Hence, 3 ODD DUCKS was born.
3 ODD DUCKS is something I've always wanted to do but was too afraid to start; something I've had the passion for but too afraid of what others might think; and something I didn't asked for but came as a blessing in disguise.
I owe it to my nieces and nephew who are my inspiration and motivation to step out of my comfort zone and pursue my dream in giving a voice to those in need of a second chance. They are 3 little odd ducklings whose sometimes cute but annoying antics inspire the pieces I create.
How often do you hear of stories where trust has been broken, faith lost and time wasted? These are the thoughts many in society have when they look at ex-convicts because it is always easier to judge when we don't know their story. I believe everyone deserves another chance at creating the life that they aspire to. This chance does not come easy to ex-inmates, and that's why I want to bring their stories to more people, in hope that one day as a society we will be more accepting and inclusive.
