The thing about experimenting is that sometimes, trying something new can be exhilarating and energizing. It reminds you of the awesome reward for taking risks. But the other side of experimenting is that you're pushing yourself voluntarily into the unknown, and that–well, that can be completely terrifying.
Our resident illustrator and graphic artist, Jaime Robles knows a little bit about that. Six years ago, he signed up for a chaotic, immersive educational experiment, and his life has never been the same.
Fast forward to last week, and Jaime once again returned to that same experiment with a different challenge–sharing his story with 800 high school seniors. Public speaking can be nerve-wracking for some, even if your audience isn't comprised of hormone-addled youths. But Jaime completely rocked that crowd, inspired some teens, and conquered his fear.
How crazy to think about all that's transpired because he took a risk that one time?
