We all have our own special talents. I like to think mine is writing and crochet magic. My son Allen is great with computers and parody. I have twin daughters. They both started as one being, however, the youngest twin, Katharine, is a writer. My other twin daughter, Christa, is a studio artist. For her senior individualized project, she took four years worth of photographs that she’d taken during her time at K College and modified them with her illustrations and Japanese text to tell a story. You can almost see what the story might be just from these two illustrations. No one else but her could have told this story in this fashion.

Even if you are a twin, there is not another person on earth with exactly the same talents. Whatever your special, unique talent is, develop it because you and only you can do that.
