Purpose is found through happiness and personal drive to leave your mark on the world.

Purpose is what creatives need to have direction, which will guide them right at their success, however it is defined for them as individuals. Life’s experiences—highs and lows—bring that purpose. It will be recognized by taking the chance to express their passions and emotions to the world through their mediums.
