We Are O.NE. – Jamaal Chinn

We Are O.NE. Series. Let’s make this a place where I get to be me and you get to be you. Let’s make this a place where together, we are O.NE. Put your hands in the middle and share your story.

Being creative means you’re thinking.
And I want people to know that I am always thinking…

Being creative means changing your perspective and solving a problem in a new way – taking risks, ignoring doubt and facing fears. It means breaking the routine and doing something different for the sake of doing something different. It means mapping out a thousand routes to reach one destination. Being creative means searching for inspiration in even the most mundane places. It means you’re asking stupid questions – creating without critiquing. Being creative means you know how to find the similarities and differences between two completely random ideas.

It means challenging yourself every day.

I approach every day to be the best version of myself – for me and those I encounter daily.

With excitement and energy, I share my vision with others – helping them also find what motivates, inspires and drives them each day. Because when it is all said and done, doing what makes you happy is what matters – the things you would be doing even if you had all the money in the world.

I’ve been in the metro for almost two years now and this place has had an immense impact on me personally. I have gotten a lot of support from the community to chase my dreams, share my ideas and step out of my comfort zone and become part of this growing community. This is what has kept me here.

    This is fantastic , I love your quest for change and creativity, weather it be in a new city, a new project, or a new hobby. If you forget to explore, sometime you forget how to grow. I never see this happening with you. I too love to make my mind work harder by thinking outside the box. Taking something you would never visualize as one thing and turn it into something else. I like being a problem solver. Its a lesson believe it or not a learned a very long time ago from amelia’s grandmother. She was a highly intelligent women, with several ornery children. She would stand back in the room watch and listen and then, in very few words she would always have the right solution to anything we were doing. Always calm and very giving and loving. I try and emulate her same traits in my life. Never stop growing, stay calm and teach others by example!! I’m proud of you!!
