Time to get back to work.
Only a day left from Christmas, a few days left to my 30th birthday and a week to a brand new decade. What a countdown.
As I'm reflecting on the past decade and preparing myself to get back to work in 2020, after a 2 years long break, I can't help but feel nostalgic. I started working as a freelance product designer right after high school in 2010 and spent my entire 20s growing it to become one of the few go-to product design agencies in the world, among governments, fortune 50 companies, and leading startups. All this while traveling between countries, building a super talented remote team and chasing a dream in Sweden. The dream of being able to call Sweden my home so I can be close to my family and continue growing 3drops in Stockholm, but it turned into a nightmare that cost me half of my life. Thanks to their injustice, inhumane migration policy, I felt like I lost half of my life and part of my identity during that process.
2 years of blowing up money, traveling alone between countries, meeting inspiring people and getting high on adventures I previously was too scared of beginning, led me to find a new self within me.
2020 is a new beginning, a new opportunity, and a new chance to evolve.
It's time to get back to work. A new 3drops is coming soon.
