This is a homework assignment for a course on Professional Design Practices

Where do you want to be in 1 year from now?

I want to be done or close to finish with my MA in graphic design. I want to learn as much as I could while I am still in school. As for my professional development, I want to more selective about the projects I am willing to take on. With a full-time job in place, I don’t need to take on any freelance gig that comes my way.

Where do you want to be in 5 years from now?

After getting my MA in graphic design, I want to teach a course at George Mason or community college on professional web design and development. I have a passion for teaching and sharing what I know. For my professional career, I want to establish my personal brand. I want to move away from client services. I want to create my own digital products. I don’t know what they are yet. I’ll put more thoughts into them after I am done with school.

Where do you want to be in 10 years from now?

I would like to have a part-time teaching job and focus on working for myself. If I won’t be in the field anymore, I’ll do something completely different like opening a nail salon or a Pho joint.
