I want this blog to be a genuine representation of my life, and I am going to be as transparent and bold as I can be with anyone who dares to follow my adventures! I am going to shift my posts a little bit to focus on my other passion besides travel, and that is architecture and interior design and decor.
to get back the the point…I left my home now over a year ago, and have been travelling, following my heart. It was a really though decision, but I knew in the end it was going to be worth it.
I know that what I post on my social sites looks like a dream, and well on one hand it is! But I have worked very hard to achieve what I have.
Now onto the title of this blog “My Dream Job in France”:
One day as I was sitting in the mountains, my college said I had been recommended on a facebook group that posts jobs in the mountain towns to do some CAD drafting… I then got an email from a pretty prominent man in the area, that he needed help to subdivide his chalet into seperate units. I thought to myself…
I’m not ready for this. I can’t do this. I’m not good enough,
And let it go for a few days. But then I thought to myself. What the hell Katy. You did a 4 year intensive degree, a year internship at a high end design firm and you’ve been freelancing for almost a year now. What makes you think you can’t do this?? so then I just thought
F**k it. I’m gunna go for it.
And I did!
So I won’t get into too much detail.. But i travelled out to the chalet and helped to design the interiors. I couldn’t imagine over a year ago that I would even be able to do this, that I could have the ambition to find a design job in France. Here are some photos of the beautiful area that the chalet was in! Tignes, close to Val D’Isere.
What a view!
Nestled high up top, I am overlooking Val D’Isere, with a view of Tignes in the background
One of the main reasons I went to Europe was to explore all the different kinds of architecture, design and construction.
What I learned from this experience is that I should always believe in myself, I know I can do more than I think I can! It is all about networking, reaching out to people you know and telling them that you have skills! If you read all the way through my blog, please give it a like or write a comment! I love to hear what you have to say <3
