OCADU Grad Ex 100

I felt so blessed to be a part of the 100th annual OCADU Graduate Exhibition this past weekend. Over 8,000 people came through the school on opening night! It was a wonderful night full of excitement and celebration of everyone's accomplishments. There was so much to see, I barely saw half of what was being exhibited, but it was so inspiring to see how hard everyone worked and how creative and innovative everyone's final projects were.

I spent most of my time connecting with my family and friends, showing them around the show and celebrating being done. I am so thankful for all of their support and encouragement especially when I was doubting myself which was often! Even though  I'm not sure about what the future holds, I have so many amazing people in my corner and they inspire me every day to keep creating and following this crazy path I've started down.

My sister-in-law Amanda also goes to OCADU for Material Art and Design and she was selling these beautiful ceramic cups and lavender pillows she made at the show. She is going to go places let me tell you, her talent is off the charts. I can't wait to see what she comes up with for her Thesis next year.

If you were at the show and I didn't get a chance to meet you, please let me know in the comments! What was your favourite part?
