Has Wokeism Ruined Our Enjoyment of Sports, Entertainment, & More?

"I promise I respect you if you say, no more. I'm not going to watch the NBA. I'm not going to go to a movie. I'm not going to go to Disney. I'm not going to go to any, I have a friend in South Carolina who said this to me years ago. He just won't do it. He and his family won't do it. And I think about all the joy that they've been robbed of, and I know they wouldn't look at it this way. And that's okay. I get it. I mean, I'm not saying this is a criticism, but the joy, the moments they lost because their little daughter couldn't meet Elsa at Disney World or Cinderella or Snow White, or their son couldn't ride buzz light year. And I'm not trying to like be infatuated with a theme park. I'm just making the point that they shouldn't deprive hardworking God fearing taxpaying American citizens of our simple pleasures. Of going to a basketball game or taking your son to a baseball game. Experiencing the crack of the bat and the popcorn and going to a movie and for me, when you get to a certain point in life, you say, how many, how many summers do I have left? How many winters do I have any christmases do I have left? I don't know that I want to spend the rest of my life refusing to do anything. Because they're all going woke. We have to speak out. We have to speak up, we have to make sure there's legislation that reflects what we the people feel, but I'm not staying home.

"Aside from the antidote that you just mentioned but like is there like a food or a piece of culture or art or anything they really sticks out to you when you think back to that time i would say trace my memories of the very many things that stick out i would say a couple couple so for one just to how much you could do which sounds weird but okay where i live now so cheesy the specific city i live in. It's great. there's a lot to do but in comparison to japan obviously not in any way comparable though living in japan. Just really situation where you can be like. Oh this weekend. I'm going to go to kyoto. And i'm gonna do xyz. I remember. i went to cuba to renew years. Like on my own for just a couple of days exploring different temples and stuff like that to celebrate new year's or next week and you can be like. Oh i wanna go to all sokha. And i wanna go to. Us jay and go on all these roller coasters. So it was such a new experience in terms of being able to do anything and everything whenever you wanted and that really allowed you to have a wealth of experience in such a short amount of time so that's one thing that i remember having the opportunity to have different experiences and the second i would say the food. I loved the japanese food a lot. I would say my favorite sushi. Those number one i had sushi japan and it amazing and then a couple of others that i really grew to love takasaki. Oh octopus it is. Yeah think i'd like it at first. But i i absolutely loved it also economic with my stu. I ate that a lot. So i really grew to like the food as well. It didn't pick up any recipes. Sadly i wish i could. I would have been making them here but yeah so the food and also just the opportunity to have different experiences. Where the two things that stat out for me very cool so you finish up teaching english in japan. Did you then go back to leeds or did you go back to tanzania. After done in japan. I finished end of twenty nineteen and actually came back to tc so the plan was to go back to school. Did my masters at the time. It was because as much as they liked teaching in japan teaching. Something i wanted to do as a career forever. I always knew that. I wanted to go back to design so i thought the best way of doing that would be to go back to school at the time. That's kind of my thought process. Go back to school get another degree. And then you'll become a designer. That was kind of my plan coming home. So that's kind of what. I immediately worked towards applying for different schools. Eventually i went to humber college. Okay and you mention just now that you just finished up there. Can you tell me about you. Know what you're studying and kind of how the program was yeah. It was a short program so technically year more under a year. And i was studying user experience design so it was a pretty comprehensive course in the sense that we got to learn by research methods which is great but also practice actual visual design skills and visual design processes so it was good combination of both aspects. The i the part of it and i would say that the professors we had and the projects that we did really helped me kind of grow and refine my skills as a designer. So when i came from japan i was applying to school. But in the meantime also working. So i had these jobs as a graphic designer and as a junior art director at different companies. So even before i started my course had designed experience from these different jobs that i have but actually taking the course helped me really develop the research aspect of my skills. So how do you conduct you research. How you become an empathetic designer. Which is something that people talk about a lot so it was a really good course in terms of developing those kinds of skills and the great thing is that we also had an internship that we're supposed to do after you're done with your studies so right now. I'm completing my internship. I'm done with my classes. But i'm finishing up. The actual design internship that doing. And then i'll technically be completely done with school but overall it was really great course not that long anais to learn logs. Everyone i studied with. I think helped me learn and grow in some way as well or some really dope projects one of which i'm working to add to my portfolio right now but yeah. It was overall really great experience. How do you think your prior experiences. Like both teaching and japan as well as studying in the uk. How do you think those things helped you out as you were studying at humber. I think they kind of helped me become quick to adapt in terms of working with different people so our course had a lot of group. Assignments most Assignments group assignments. We're working on projects with different people. And that was really easy for me because i during my time at leeds and in japan to certain extent i was working as a lot of different people from a lot of backgrounds. And i would say for anyone in that kind of environment. You have to be patient and you have to be flexible and a lot of different ways. And i felt like doing this course. It was a lot easier for me. Because i did have that experience like even terms of times on so a lot of the people that i was working with. The other students on my chorus lived in canada. Canada is seven hours behind my time. I think so even in terms of adopting to working in the evening or late at night my time which was easier for them because that was early in the day for them was just something. I adapted to as well so i think it just made me a lot. Flexible like in terms of just working with leverage. That was working with and bring out each other's strengths and just kinda working collaboratively to achieve the same outcome just made it a lot easier for me. Nice overall. what appeals to you about. Us design really appeals. To you. i think for me. It's about of creating a solution that benefits people in some way except it's like of tangible solution or a solution driven by technology so i always had an interest in technology but when it came to your ex it was kind of helped me look at it in a new kind of light so we're not just building products for the sake of building products like designing website. Just because you want to or building up just because you think oh it'll be fun you know. It's kind of building these products in order to address a problem from an innovative point of view. And i thought that was always really cool. And after i started my course in humber it was more about learning okay. How is this process driven by looking at users looking what promising experiencing from an empathetic point of view and really trying to put yourself in their shoes and understand what it is. They need whether they expect from solution from this from disservice and really trying to frame your mindset frame your thinking as a designer that kind of way so i always thought that was really interesting. That's kind of the designer. i wanna be own. It'd be someone that can take on these issues like working team to address these issues in ways that helps a specific user base in some manner. And that's something that i'm also still working towards but ultimately that kind of became a goal of mine and realize what solidified interested you xs. I know throughout your your both educational as well as professional journey. Who are some of the like mentors or people that have really helped you out along the way. Yeah well i always say my first mentors are my parents not from a technical perspective obviously are not designers but more from a motion supporter perspective. So i think. I mentioned a bit earlier. Always been very supportive in terms of whatever i wanted to do and there have been times when things have not been going well or i felt that this wasn't a career path that i would be good at and they've really been domain people kind of holding me up and pushing me forwards so i was kind of label them as My first mentor so to speak in terms of like life lessons in general in terms of this design industry. I have a few mentors. That tab really guided me in my pass up to where i am now so the first is a designer based here. her name is lillian. And she's kind of head of design at a company agency here called aim group and she was my first official design mentor. She actually ended up becoming my mentor. Because i applied for a role at her company. And i didn't get it. But it's i guess here's another tip. I didn't kind of let that be. I reached out a couple of weeks. Later now's dyke. I know. I didn't get the role but i kind of love your feedback on my portfolio or on a specific case. Study and see what i could improve. And she was completely for it. So that was kind of my first experience getting insightful feedback from someone in the industry and she kind of became a mentor. Me and still is so just somebody that i always go to for advice. Whenever kind of different things in my life happened in terms of my career so she would be my first mentoring mentor. The i still have managed to acquire a couple more mentors. So there's a platform could adp list. That i recently became an ambassador. Often that i use often and that's really made it a lot easier to find mentors in different companies all over the world so through adp list. I branch to connect with mentors like riana who is a designer in the states. And she's been helping me a lot in terms of really refining my portfolio and adapting it to improve and is just kind of been a really great way to talk to people in a lot of different companies and learn more about what they expect from designers getting their feedback and getting their insights in terms of people that maybe i haven't spoken to us much directly such a one on one basis. But i still credit as inspiring me. When i was younger one. I've already mentioned howard pinski who is a designer adobe. I would always watch his videos and kind of inspired by his design work andras well used to be a creative resident at adobe was also somebody that inspired me a lot others brandon coup is. I think what is his exact role. There's so many different roles. But i think he kind of works in collaboration with adobe and has his own community. I remember when i joined his community. Really motivated my desire to design not just from a professional perspective but also just for fun as well so those are a couple of people that i've learned from in different ways over time when he said brandon brandon gross. Yes all while we brandon on this show a couple of months ago. Actually look at the small world yeah. Joining immunity was just so awesome. I'd never experienced something like that before by his great now. People here in the states may not know a lot about tanzania just as a country like when i think tanzania and i know it's and honestly this is mostly coming from like grade. School education from watching wearing the world is carmen sandiego. But like i know. It's a country near the equator. I know it's between kenya and mozambique and it's like very like the seren- getty is there and mount kilimanjaro. And the island of zanzibar. Like if you were to sell. Or i guess you know just speak. You know a few simply about tanzania like how would you describe it to folks. I would say it's a place brimming with culture and experiences that are probably unlike anything you've experienced if you okay for example if you live in the states and had had a chance to visit from a cultural perspective. It's really a place where you can really kind of learn a lot different things in terms of different cultures and different practices and traditions. I know sometimes people. That's kind of one thing that they really look foreign. Visiting new places learning more about the culture and there are a lot of ways that you can do that here. So obviously there's one aspect in terms of the wildlife which is great. Sarah getty all that stuff that you can definitely do. You can also kind of immerse yourself warrant like specific local cultures or something. A lot of people do is kind of racer souls or other risk themselves. Likely messiah cultures actually living within communities for certain amount of time and just kinda experiencing their different traditions and customs. Or even if you were kind of just visiting more of the mainland area so for example the city i live in dar-es-salaam. There are a lot of different ways. You can really kind of just have different experience than what you're used to walking along the street. Kind of looking at different artistic products that people have created sculptures paintings hanson objects. All kind of stuff and really just getting to learn more about what it is that they've created taking the initiative to kind of take those products for yourself as well as mementos terms of food as well just kind of getting to walk around and experience the culture in some way. I think for me the one thing that i really do like about missed when i was abroad is how chill it is and i think that's something that a lot of people will say that it's just very laid back place. Some might say too laid back at times but Times when you compare it to other places that are extremely high paced stressful. When you come back to dr or comeback too easy. Everything's closed down a bit. People aren't in in so much of a rush. You know there isn't that feely that's around you all the time. So that's something that. I do appreciate a lot that it does back and it does feel a lot more relaxed. And that's something that i growing up became used to it when i'm away from tv. That i missed a lot just very relaxed accommodating welcoming place whenever anyone would like to visit before we started recording a had sort of incorrectly said that. Oh you live in the capital. Like doris llamas. Not the capital. Tanzania is a lot of things that is the largest city though the dome. Yeah what would you say is like are there like specific elements to tanzanian design. If you had to to sell the masking you to sell the country. But i have to sell like when you think of tanzanian design what jumps out to you. I would say a. Maybe the uniqueness to it might be something. guts may be applicable or a lot of different countries. But when you do purchase a product from here made by people local to here. There's a certain uniqueness to the design so whether it's a sculpture or painting leg there's essence to it that feels very tanzania or feels very at least for me feels very home and so that's something that i think stands out for me. It can be something as simple as a small sculpture of a man but a lot of times tells the story from whatever is that the is taking inspiration from and i think that a lot of artists here are able to convey those stories and convey those emotions within whatever it is that they create. So there's a lot of calmness to what's created here which i guess maybe perspective unique to me or unique to people who are from here that maybe people not from here might not get to experience but i do think that a lot of the stories in a lot of those emotions and feelings are conveyed. The art that people make. I was doing a little bit of research earlier and i saw this unique kind of like painting style to tanzania call tingo tingo. Yeah can you talk about that a little bit as much as you might know about it. Yeah we actually have. I think there's an art museum as well close to where i live on. Ticketing arts museum. But that's kind of an example of the kind of work that i think people make that 'cause convey store your convey some kind of idea in colorful and unique way and for me to tikka products. Aren't something that. I bought a lot growing up. Just because you know. I feel like when you live someplace you kind of tend to neglect embracing art of where you live as much as you should. In comparison to where you travel elsewhere for making always kind of just been an arcade style that is unique that is able to kind of convey those different stories in really dynamic and colorful ways. So yeah are there any like tanzanian designers that you know of that like maybe we should know about or we should be on the lookout for aside from you. Of course are there. Are there any that you know of mea. There are a couple that i do typically follow it too. I guess you could say quote. Uncle admire or they're designed to work inspires me in some way. Most of them are if not product designers graphic designers. Because that's more of the area that i'm involved in but a couple of name. I guess i'm there's one cold rafael. He is a brand identity designer. He designed a lower brand identities in locals for clients. And he's someone who's worked that. I've seen a lot even before actually started working as a designer. I would see his work often. And i still find myself being inspired by his work every day. Even i don't typically want to become a brand identity are but what i admire is how he's able to kinda take what the client is asking for. Expected are expecting a really great these unique identities for these clients so i think his logo worry kids. Identity designed work is awesome. He somebody. I found that i learned from a lot another design arizona female designer names edna. She's actually animator but we connected on linked in and occasionally. I see her work on my feet and i. I'm always a big fan of coming across other funeral designers or female creatives. Who are from where. I'm from 'cause it isn't something that's super popular or that you come across often hear. Unfortunately you know. Hopefully that changes over time. So an example. Somebody who's worked. I genuinely do appreciate whenever i come across it. I'm not super great animation motion graphics so just always really great to see somebody who is and see some of the great concepts that they're able to come up with terms of another person. I guess i would see. Jackson is one. He used our director at a company. Quite remember the name of. But i'm inspired by some other work. You recently shared. It's more of creative work. Created for A specific company located here. But i kind of just thought it was really creative. Interpretation of the idea they had so was kind of this connection between a telecom company here but branding it from the perspective of something ecological or it was more of like a sustainable type of project. And i found that the creative products he was able to create where really unique and somebody who has worked environment before so drina Director at an agency. I know how hard it is sometimes. Really come up with creative executions on concept at the client actually likes and wants to move forward with so i kinda just thought that his work was really dope at something that i should learn from us. Well so those are just a couple of names. But they're definitely a lot of designers out there within the industry with different roles that i've got into a lot this year particular so yeah i'm super grateful to always be learning from them. What advice would you give to to any designers that are listening. That like wanna get more into you ex design. In general i would say so a couple of tips. The first one being saw i kind of really talked about this but putting yourself out there. I know in the beginning and particular. You are so much more self conscious about your work and what you're putting out there because you think it's not good enough and we live in a day and age. Where are always sharing their work on lie you know we have so many different platforms dedicated for that kind of thing especially from a creative point of view is behind his dribble. There's instagram there's so many different platforms where people are sharing awesome work and it's easy to feel intimidated by that. Feel like what you've made is not good enough. But i always say regardless of what stage you are at in terms of your career or your progress towards becoming a designer. Don't be afraid to put your work out. There and share it and people are more than likely going to provide positive feedback in some way or form like. I think they're very few people out there. That are going to see something. You've made and judge it. Harshly people tend to be very accommodating very welcoming especially for newer designers. i'd say twitter is one of the best platforms for that kind of thing. So precip is to put your work out there. Second tip would-be to always find ways to learn so my ways of learning was to take post grad courses. You exercise but you don't have to do that. You can learn a lot of different ways. I think with online platforms these days or so many different ways that you can really pick up new skills so you know there to you to their skill. Share this udom either a lot of different platforms you can take actual courses that will teach you specific skills or alternatively you can learn by involving yourself in different communities. There's designed buddies. There's the adobe creative community brands community there's so many different design communities out there that you can really become involved in and they. That's a great way of really learning a learning to become a designer but also building friendships and building relationships with these different people. That can help you on your path and then my last tip would be I guess to kind of find what your motivation is. I think especially when you are transitioning from a different field that something that a lot of people have been doing lately which is awesome. But sometimes it's really easy to lose sight of what's motivating youtube pursue this past the designer for me. My motivation was. I wanted to build solutions. That would help people in a community level. That was kind of the main thing. That kept me focused on my goal up until this point so i think for anyone at the start of their career. That's something that you need to identify. So that when things get tough and when they do get hard especially when you are applying for full time roles. It's not easy at all for most of us. You do need to have that source of motivation. That keeps you going regardless you can hold onto even during those tough times. But as a kind of three main tips. I give to people. What would you say. You are obsessed with lately. Assessments net flicks. No not not six. I think my obsessions haven't changed in the past few years. My main obsession is anime and manga. That's kind of if i'm not deciding. That's typically what. I'm consuming in some way shoes. Titles are you checking out a lot of. I guess mainstream ones that most people are like my hero could date mia or the slime one whose title. I can't remember it's way too long. Haiku volleyball one so i typically. I've been watching and reading manga. Since i was in high school quite a few years now and it's just something that i always go back to because there's never a shortage of good content lake ever. There's always some things that'll pique your interest in a lot of different genres like really any kind of content. So up until this point. I kind of have kept going with that. That's typically what. I what i use for entertainment. I guess Okay have you seen cowboy bebop. I've seen episode a cowboy people. Okay i i was gonna ask if you had heard about the live action. I think it's a movie or a show. That's come into netflix. i have heard of it. Yes i have heard. It looks good. It's what i think people are saying. I'm interested to see what it is. I'm always a little weary about live action. Adaptations of anime. Because it's one thing to convert from animations alive action but you're also there's so many cultural things about animated that are like intrinsically japanese that when you are converting it to english and english speaking audiences in cultures. It just doesn't mesh well for some reason. Yeah i'm thinking specifically about the ace attorney series from from capcom they have. It's this. This lawyer phoenix right. That's what the the american title is. But the the japanese title is not hajo something. I forget his last name but anyway there's certain very japanese things that they try to convert over to american like instead of them eating rahman they eat hamburgers and like the fan community calls the city that they live in japan journalists. Because it's supposed to be. It's supposed to be in tokyo but they're actually in los angeles in the. Us err whatever but the cowboys. I'm interested to see what that's gonna look like in live action. The cast looks great. I wonder how they're gonna really capture that feeling. I remember reading an interview with john show and he was saying that he wasn't going to sign on unless yoko connor who is the composer of theme and much of the music throughout the series. He's like unless she if she's not on board. I'm not on board so that gives me hope that it's going to be good but we'll see we'll see live action. Dacians do not have a good route at all like. I don't know what the good ones are a lot of them. People typically say suck like the most common example. Okay so i don't think avatars necessarily adamy but people always trash live action of avatar off old. So i personally haven't seen any live action adaptations yet but if The cowboys viewpoint is good. I might just have to. I hope so. I think anime fans everywhere wants. I think they wanted to be good. You know. I mean no one wants to go into seeing these things and they hope that fails because there's such a rabid fan base behind it so they want it to be successful but you know what the fans want and what hollywood gives you two different things two entirely different things so yeah where do you see yourself in the next five years. What kind of work do you want to be doing. I hope i am working in a company as a full-time product designer. Just because that's something. I haven't gotten experience of doing so yet. So i've been working as a freelancer for quite a while. And that's great. and has its merits. There's also a lot of value in what you can learn working in a company environment even working in an agency so right now i do work with an agency but more of a part time basis so i definitely see myself kinda working fulltime product designer hopefully vin in a senior role as well like in terms of i think i have high expectations for myself in terms of kind of how i want to improve and progress career wise so i don't want to be stuck in the same position. I'm in right now like a year down the line. We'll look back and see. Oh okay. I went up this many levels figurative levels so i kind of see myself. Yes workings product designer but hopefully a more senior role to. I want to kind of be at that point. But i also want to be able to look back in really feel like. I've made an impact in some way. So i talked about this a bit before but i'm really interested in kind of how you can create solutions for the communities you belong to and there are a couple of projects that i have in mind for my own community just kind of based on my experience being back. Tc since twenty. Nineteen and what. I've experienced here so far and you know they're couple things that i really look at and i feel we could have a solution for this but we don't yet. Why is that you know. And how do you approach those problems. Create solutions for those problems. So i hope several years down the line that i have participated in creating solutions for some of those problems as well on a community level. I think that's something that i really strive towards creating a designer as well like yes you are designer and you have successfully worked on this many global projects but also what impact have you had a niran committee. I think that's something important for me to. We'll just wrap things up here. Where can our audience find out more about you and about your work on line. Yeah i'm on a lot of platform. So the main ones. I use twitter asks elsa a ameri says a bit confusing elsa and then another a and then amri three as in the middle. I'm also instagram. At elsa entered armory lincoln. A lot to you can find me there. My name is l. family so same as always my and when be hands as well i was love following other creatives and be hands checking the coup work that they do an in. There's also elsa edward armory so you can find all those different platforms. I also have a fully website. Elsa ameri dot com that you can check out all my social media contacts sara's well that makes it a lot easier if you find me.

I have a few mentors. That tab really guided me in my pass up to where i am now so the first is a designer based here. her name is lillian. And she's kind of head of design at a company agency here called aim group and she was my first official design mentor. She actually ended up becoming my mentor. Because i applied for a role at her company. And i didn't get it. But it's i guess here's another tip. I didn't kind of let that be. I reached out a couple of weeks. Later now's dyke. I know. I didn't get the role but i kind of love your feedback on my portfolio or on a specific case. Study and see what i could improve. And she was completely for it. So that was kind of my first experience getting insightful feedback from someone in the industry and she kind of became a mentor. Me and still is so just somebody that i always go to for advice. Whenever kind of different things in my life happened in terms of my career so she would be my first mentoring mentor. The i still have managed to acquire a couple more mentors. So there's a platform could adp list. That i recently became an ambassador. Often that i use often and that's really made it a lot easier to find mentors in different companies all over the world so through adp list. I branch to connect with mentors like riana who is a designer in the states. And she's been helping me a lot in terms of really refining my portfolio and adapting it to improve and is just kind of been a really great way to talk to people in a lot of different companies and learn more about what they expect from designers getting their feedback and getting their insights in terms of people that maybe i haven't spoken to us much directly such a one on one basis. But i still credit as inspiring me. When i was younger one. I've already mentioned howard pinski who is a designer adobe. I would always watch his videos and kind of inspired by his design work andras well used to be a creative resident at adobe was also somebody that inspired me a lot others brandon coup is. I think what is his exact role. There's so many different roles. But i think he kind of works in collaboration with adobe and has his own community. I remember when i joined his community. Really motivated my desire to design not just from a professional perspective but also just for fun as well so those are a couple of people that i've learned from in different ways over time when he said brandon brandon gross. Yes all while we brandon on this show a couple of months ago. Actually look at the small world yeah. Joining immunity was just so awesome. I'd never experienced something like that before by his great now. People here in the states may not know a lot about tanzania just as a country like when i think tanzania and i know it's and honestly this is mostly coming from like grade. School education from watching wearing the world is carmen sandiego. But like i know. It's a country near the equator. I know it's between kenya and mozambique and it's like very like the seren- getty is there and mount kilimanjaro. And the island of zanzibar. Like if you were to sell. Or i guess you know just speak. You know a few simply about tanzania like how would you describe it to folks. I would say it's a place brimming with culture and experiences that are probably unlike anything you've experienced if you okay for example if you live in the states and had had a chance to visit from a cultural perspective. It's really a place where you can really kind of learn a lot different things in terms of different cultures and different practices and traditions. I know sometimes people. That's kind of one thing that they really look foreign. Visiting new places learning more about the culture and there are a lot of ways that you can do that here. So obviously there's one aspect in terms of the wildlife which is great. Sarah getty all that stuff that you can definitely do. You can also kind of immerse yourself warrant like specific local cultures or something. A lot of people do is kind of racer souls or other risk themselves. Likely messiah cultures actually living within communities for certain amount of time and just kinda experiencing their different traditions and customs. Or even if you were kind of just visiting more of the mainland area so for example the city i live in dar-es-salaam. There are a lot of different ways. You can really kind of just have different experience than what you're used to walking along the street. Kind of looking at different artistic products that people have created sculptures paintings hanson objects. All kind of stuff and really just getting to learn more about what it is that they've created taking the initiative to kind of take those products for yourself as well as mementos terms of food as well just kind of getting to walk around and experience the culture in some way. I think for me the one thing that i really do like about missed when i was abroad is how chill it is and i think that's something that a lot of people will say that it's just very laid back place. Some might say too laid back at times but Times when you compare it to other places that are extremely high paced stressful. When you come back to dr or comeback too easy. Everything's closed down a bit. People aren't in in so much of a rush. You know there isn't that feely that's around you all the time. So that's something that. I do appreciate a lot that it does back and it does feel a lot more relaxed. And that's something that i growing up became used to it when i'm away from tv. That i missed a lot just very relaxed accommodating welcoming place whenever anyone would like to visit before we started recording a had sort of incorrectly said that. Oh you live in the capital. Like doris llamas. Not the capital. Tanzania is a lot of things that is the largest city though the dome. Yeah what would you say is like are there like specific elements to tanzanian design. If you had to to sell the masking you to sell the country. But i have to sell like when you think of.

"Have anyone especially in a small town way out. In japan super far from tanzania but the community in particular were just. They went out of the way to really make you feel like you were at home with people that cared about you. That was something that i really grew to appreciate during a year. They're just getting to know different people and learn more about them and feel accepted by them. And that's something. I miss as well for my time there. We're cool. i'm curious what's one thing that you really kind of like. Remember that sticks out aside from the antidote that you just mentioned but like is there like a food or a piece of culture or art or anything they really sticks out to you when you think back to that time i would say trace my memories of the very many things that stick out i would say a couple couple so for one just to how much you could do which sounds weird but okay where i live now so cheesy the specific city i live in. It's great. there's a lot to do but in comparison to japan obviously not in any way comparable though living in japan. Just really situation where you can be like. Oh this weekend. I'm going to go to kyoto. And i'm gonna do xyz. I remember. i went to cuba to renew years. Like on my own for just a couple of days exploring different temples and stuff like that to celebrate new year's or next week and you can be like. Oh i wanna go to all sokha. And i wanna go to. Us jay and go on all these roller coasters. So it was such a new experience in terms of being able to do anything and everything whenever you wanted and that really allowed you to have a wealth of experience in such a short amount of time so that's one thing that i remember having the opportunity to have different experiences and the second i would say the food. I loved the japanese food a lot. I would say my favorite sushi. Those number one i had sushi japan and it amazing and then a couple of others that i really grew to love takasaki. Oh octopus it is. Yeah think i'd like it at first. But i i absolutely loved it also economic with my stu. I ate that a lot. So i really grew to like the food as well. It didn't pick up any recipes. Sadly i wish i could. I would have been making them here but yeah so the food and also just the opportunity to have different experiences. Where the two things that stat out for me very cool so you finish up teaching english in japan. Did you then go back to leeds or did you go back to tanzania. After done in japan. I finished end of twenty nineteen and actually came back to tc so the plan was to go back to school. Did my masters at the time. It was because as much as they liked teaching in japan teaching. Something i wanted to do as a career forever. I always knew that. I wanted to go back to design so i thought the best way of doing that would be to go back to school at the time. That's kind of my thought process. Go back to school get another degree. And then you'll become a designer. That was kind of my plan coming home. So that's kind of what. I immediately worked towards applying for different schools. Eventually i went to humber college. Okay and you mention just now that you just finished up there. Can you tell me about you. Know what you're studying and kind of how the program was yeah. It was a short program so technically year more under a year. And i was studying user experience design so it was a pretty comprehensive course in the sense that we got to learn by research methods which is great but also practice actual visual design skills and visual design processes so it was good combination of both aspects. The i the part of it and i would say that the professors we had and the projects that we did really helped me kind of grow and refine my skills as a designer. So when i came from japan i was applying to school. But in the meantime also working. So i had these jobs as a graphic designer and as a junior art director at different companies. So even before i started my course had designed experience from these different jobs that i have but actually taking the course helped me really develop the research aspect of my skills. So how do you conduct you research. How you become an empathetic designer. Which is something that people talk about a lot so it was a really good course in terms of developing those kinds of skills and the great thing is that we also had an internship that we're supposed to do after you're done with your studies so right now. I'm completing my internship. I'm done with my classes. But i'm finishing up. The actual design internship that doing. And then i'll technically be completely done with school but overall it was really great course not that long anais to learn logs. Everyone i studied with. I think helped me learn and grow in some way as well or some really dope projects one of which i'm working to add to my portfolio right now but yeah. It was overall really great experience. How do you think your prior experiences. Like both teaching and japan as well as studying in the uk. How do you think those things helped you out as you were studying at humber. I think they kind of helped me become quick to adapt in terms of working with different people so our course had a lot of group. Assignments most Assignments group assignments. We're working on projects with different people. And that was really easy for me because i during my time at leeds and in japan to certain extent i was working as a lot of different people from a lot of backgrounds. And i would say for anyone in that kind of environment. You have to be patient and you have to be flexible and a lot of different ways. And i felt like doing this course. It was a lot easier for me. Because i did have that experience like even terms of times on so a lot of the people that i was working with. The other students on my chorus lived in canada. Canada is seven hours behind my time. I think so even in terms of adopting to working in the evening or late at night my time which was easier for them because that was early in the day for them was just something. I adapted to as well so i think it just made me a lot. Flexible like in terms of just working with leverage. That was working with and bring out each other's strengths and just kinda working collaboratively to achieve the same outcome just made it a lot easier for me. Nice overall. what appeals to you about. Us design really appeals. To you. i think for me. It's about of creating a solution that benefits people in some way except it's like of tangible solution or a solution driven by technology so i always had an interest in technology but when it came to your ex it was kind of helped me look at it in a new kind of light so we're not just building products for the sake of building products like designing website. Just because you want to or building up just because you think oh it'll be fun you know. It's kind of building these products in order to address a problem from an innovative point of view. And i thought that was always really cool. And after i started my course in humber it was more about learning okay. How is this process driven by looking at users looking what promising experiencing from an empathetic point of view and really trying to put yourself in their shoes and understand what it is. They need whether they expect from solution from this from disservice and really trying to frame your mindset frame your thinking as a designer that kind of way so i always thought that was really interesting. That's kind of the designer. i wanna be own. It'd be someone that can take on these issues like working team to address these issues in ways that helps a specific user base in some manner. And that's something that i'm also still working towards but ultimately that kind of became a goal of mine and realize what solidified interested you xs. I know throughout your your both educational as well as professional journey. Who are some of the like mentors or people that have really helped.

Something i wanted to do as a career forever. I always knew that. I wanted to go back to design so i thought the best way of doing that would be to go back to school at the time. That's kind of my thought process. Go back to school get another degree. And then you'll become a designer. That was kind of my plan coming home. So that's kind of what. I immediately worked towards applying for different schools. Eventually i went to humber college. Okay and you mention just now that you just finished up there. Can you tell me about you. Know what you're studying and kind of how the program was yeah. It was a short program so technically year more under a year. And i was studying user experience design so it was a pretty comprehensive course in the sense that we got to learn by research methods which is great but also practice actual visual design skills and visual design processes so it was good combination of both aspects. The i the part of it and i would say that the professors we had and the projects that we did really helped me kind of grow and refine my skills as a designer. So when i came from japan i was applying to school. But in the meantime also working. So i had these jobs as a graphic designer and as a junior art director at different companies. So even before i started my course had designed experience from these different jobs that i have but actually taking the course helped me really develop the research aspect of my skills. So how do you conduct you research. How you become an empathetic designer. Which is something that people talk about a lot so it was a really good course in terms of developing those kinds of skills and the great thing is that we also had an internship that we're supposed to do after you're done with your studies so right now. I'm completing my internship. I'm done with my classes. But i'm finishing up. The actual design internship that doing. And then i'll technically be completely done with school but overall it was really great course not that long anais to learn logs. Everyone i studied with. I think helped me learn and grow in some way as well or some really dope projects one of which i'm working to add to my portfolio right now but yeah. It was overall really great experience. How do you think your prior experiences. Like both teaching and japan as well as studying in the uk. How do you think those things helped you out as you were studying at humber. I think they kind of helped me become quick to adapt in terms of working with different people so our course had a lot of group. Assignments most Assignments group assignments. We're working on projects with different people. And that was really easy for me because i during my time at leeds and in japan to certain extent i was working as a lot of different people from a lot of backgrounds. And i would say for anyone in that kind of environment. You have to be patient and you have to be flexible and a lot of different ways. And i felt like doing this course. It was a lot easier for me. Because i did have that experience like even terms of times on so a lot of the people that i was working with. The other students on my chorus lived in canada. Canada is seven hours behind my time. I think so even in terms of adopting to working in the evening or late at night my time which was easier for them because that was early in the day for them was just something. I adapted to as well so i think it just made me a lot. Flexible like in terms of just working with leverage. That was working with and bring out each other's strengths and just kinda working collaboratively to achieve the same outcome just made it a lot easier for me. Nice overall. what appeals to you about. Us.

"Town that was kind of near kyoto soccer and it was a really small town but community wise. The people i met there were just so like. They brought me into their community in ways that i initially wasn't expecting so i'm christian so i went to church even while i was there and the church community in particular i guess because even adopted me like they were just so accommodating and so helpful and so nice and really went out of the way to include me because it is easy to feel alone into feel like. You don't really have anyone especially in a small town way out. In japan super far from tanzania but the community in particular were just. They went out of the way to really make you feel like you were at home with people that cared about you. That was something that i really grew to appreciate during a year. They're just getting to know different people and learn more about them and feel accepted by them. And that's something. I miss as well for my time there. We're cool. i'm curious what's one thing that you really kind of like. Remember that sticks out aside from the antidote that you just mentioned but like is there like a food or a piece of culture or art or anything they really sticks out to you when you think back to that time i would say trace my memories of the very many things that stick out i would say a couple couple so for one just to how much you could do which sounds weird but okay where i live now so cheesy the specific city i live in. It's great. there's a lot to do but in comparison to japan obviously not in any way comparable though living in japan. Just really situation where you can be like. Oh this weekend. I'm going to go to kyoto. And i'm gonna do xyz. I remember. i went to cuba to renew years. Like on my own for just a couple of days exploring different temples and stuff like that to celebrate new year's or next week and you can be like. Oh i wanna go to all sokha. And i wanna go to. Us jay and go on all these roller coasters. So it was such a new experience in terms of being able to do anything and everything whenever you wanted and that really allowed you to have a wealth of experience in such a short amount of time so that's one thing that i remember having the opportunity to have different experiences and the second i would say the food. I loved the japanese food a lot. I would say my favorite sushi. Those number one i had sushi japan and it amazing and then a couple of others that i really grew to love takasaki. Oh octopus it is. Yeah think i'd like it at first. But i i absolutely loved it also economic with my stu. I ate that a lot. So i really grew to like the food as well. It didn't pick up any recipes. Sadly i wish i could. I would have been making them here but yeah so the food and also just the opportunity to have different experiences.

"Why not explore that field. Yeah that makes sense. Yeah so you finished up at leeds. What was sort of your early career like once you graduated. So you've gotten this feeling like oh. I designed this mobile project. i love it. I want to keep doing stuff like this. What we're sort of your your. I like early career experiences after that. Yes i graduated from leads and initially very not necessarily complicated but indirect pathway to what i'm doing right now but initially i wanted to go for my masters and i wanted study front end development.

"What was your time like. Their leads was awesome. It was observed for three years three years and it was such a great experience. Whenever i think back to it. I'm always like. I'm definitely glad i went to leeds because it's interesting when i apply to go there. I didn't know what i wanted to do like. I'm assuming moved high school graduates. Don't really of what you wanna do as a career for the rest of your life. It's a lot of pressure to kind of figure that out at such a young age. So when i did apply to lead in a couple of other schools i didn't have a solid idea but i thought okay i like media and at the time i liked studying media representations. I thought those interesting as i. Okay let's apply for communication media the risk of leads. And that's what. I ended up going to do in terms of actual experience at the university. The course itself was very theoretical Not what i wanted exactly. Or what i learned. I didn't wanna do. They wanna be writing essays and doing research for the rest of my life but everything else. Outside of it was an experience. I think really helped me grow as a person so the city itself i fell in love with i think leads an awesome city. Not i guess you could say not super busy if you compare it to places like london but also not boring. There's like a ton of stuff to do. So i found that i became a lot more outgoing and a lot more open and social during my time there because it was such a new experience very different from the city. I grew up in. And i was able to kind of do a lot more stuff that i never had the chance to do. The university was huge. There were so many like societies as they were called. I guess maybe in the state you might call them clubs like after school activity type things that you could gaijin and participate in and i did so much so i felt like during my time. My three years they are. I picked up all these new skills and met all these great people and it just helped me grow and develop as a person. So i kind of always look back on it as okay. It was an awesome experience. Like maybe in terms of the course i took. It wasn't the best but everything else. Outside of that was awesome. Kind of helped me grow and leads is is kind of a i mean here. In the states we call it a college. Sal but it's a town that has like several universities so you always have kind of this vibrant throng of students in culture and everything that comes through. I think every year yeah there were still like the you would always run into young people. Are you said students. There were quite a few universities there so exactly always felt vibrant like there was always something going on something that you could do so in that sense it was just such a great city to really kind of branch out in and so while you were at least this is when you kinda. I like saw and looked at design. Something that you wanted to do is that right. Yeah i guess you could say kind of so my final year. I took an optional course where it was called mobile design and it was mostly theory with studying concept about mobile design but we had like an option on assignment where you could actually design mobile product. And i remember. I took the option of doing that assignment. Because i thought it might be interesting to kind of do more of a practical concept piece that i would say is the first time to really designed anything at all and that whole experience was new to me but also exciting because he was the first time i was doing a school assignment and i wasn't board. You know what it was creating like. I didn't mind spending hours and hours and hours of my time building this product even remember back then. I was using sketch i believe. That was the first design software. That i came across and i downloaded and used it to build that out looking back on it now. It was not a very well designed app. But at the time i thought. Wow this is amazing. I'm really good at this. But like the whole point was really ignited. Something in me for the first time and really made me think. Oh okay this is interesting. I kind of really liked doing this. Maybe i should look into what kind of career might involve this type of work more. Let's go a little bit deeper into that. Like when you describe that feeling like how did it fulfil you like ways that you feel like doing that. Project sort of made design really like click for you and your brain. I think it was because i enjoyed every single moment of it so we had a problem that was presented to us and had to come up with solution so obviously involving brainstorming and then actually creating solutions aiding building a prototype or design or sketch and then having your final product that you didn't presented and it was the first time i kind of i enjoyed each and every single step involved in the whole process. I think with previous days. I had done. It was more about the final product like. Let's just do this. Get all this out the way and create something that we can then submit and be done with it but there wasn't any sense of attachment to what i've actually created. That was the first time that i did feel touch to what made. And i felt proud of what i've made and there was a feeling that i wanted again. I wanted to be able to create and design products at the time. I just want more apps. Because i thought the process was fun and also i was proud of what i kind of was able to come up with in the end. That kind of pride. I don't know how you describe it. Maybe i've described it. Will i kind of understand what i mean but it was that feeling that i had you. I think prides a good way to describe it as you alluded to earlier. You know when you're in those young ages say seventeen eighteen nineteen etc going off to school and there. Is this really strong expectation. I would say particularly among black folks. There's a strong expectation that really kind of figure out what it is that you're going to do and that you know especially if your family. Is it really supportive of the arts. That it's something that will make money. They want to make sure that you're going to be doing something that will provide for you and that you're not necessarily just kinda like chasing a hobby i would say i don't know maybe it's different in in different cultures throughout the diaspora. But yeah. I think you know when you find that thing that like you get really excited about and you feel proud about. That's a feeling that you continue chasing because that is what will fuel you and kind of you know guides you through your career and no. I agree completely a growing up. My parents have always been supportive. Like regardless of what i wanted to. They just kind of wanted me to figure out what i wanted to do for a long time. I didn't know but like you said there. Is that pressure that whatever it is that you decide to. Do you want it to be something that you can use to support yourself in the future. You don't wanna be completely reliant on your parents forever. So there is a pressure and that expectation and at the time. When i was building that project for the class assignment and i had that feeling i wasn't even thinking about. Oh i can earn a lot of money from this. I didn't know how much designers earned from designing products. At the time. It was just more of this. Is something that i think i love doing. And that's the first time i felt that way. So.

"Get noticed insane. So that's that's really cool. I agree 'cause you might be surprised. How many brands do appreciate that and will respond in some way. So there's like another brand has welcomed voice flowed i i. I don't know how many people have heard of. But it's kind of a platform where you can implement voice features in whatever product signed. And i made something that included that products with one of my class projects and i posted it and i tag them and they were so grateful is the right word but they responded so positively like they shared what i said. They followed me like they promoted post that i published so a lot of brands. Do respond positively to you tagging them or sharing your content with them telling people oh i made. This was this particular program. It's typically seen in a positive light so people should always kind of before and during that kind of stuff you other really should. And i'm telling you from the company and that's worked in those marketing departments. It makes our job so much easier. We we can see the community talking back to us and letting us know because we don't have to try to hunt and find down like or who are the people that we should focus on a spotlight on especially especially people of color especially women. It makes all the difference if you're like reaching out to the company letting them know about this kind of stuff that you're doing because it just it makes our job easier edit. It helps us help you because a lot of these companies are really especially software companies. And i'm kind of giving a bit of inside baseball here. But a lot of software companies have zero idea how to approach community like zero. The most that they will do is put up a twitter account. Maybe a discord account or discord about something. Like that's about it there really depending on people to talk to them because these are generally and i'm generalizing here. These are software developers that do not have social skills. I'm being completely. I'll be a completely honest here. It is so so so good official to just reach out to us and let us know what you're doing because you know there's a saying my close mouth don't get fed. These companies that have community efforts are like struggling to find ways to do things better for their use because they want their users to be rabid fans. They want this tool that they've spent hours weeks months years building to like take off and be really profitable and the way that happens is if they have a community of people behind them that love the tool in the product so reach out talk to them. Trust me they want it. They want to hear from you because otherwise they really don't have much to go off of. I'm just being totally honest there. I agree completely. We check sight from you. So i see on instagram. You've been doing this. Little personal series. Called introverts talk tell me about also a good reminder that i need to kind of create a new post to that series initially because i do describe self as an introvert tip because i do like my own space in my own me time. Which is i guess. You know your typical introverts. And i thought okay so i'm an introvert and i work in design which typically is a collaborative kind of environment. You're working with other people other designers sometimes people in different roles engineers etcetera. So you do kind of have to know how to work with people in different ways and accommodates yourself to their situation or vice versa. And i thought okay. This is interesting. I'm industry. I'm working as a designer but most introvert. So what are some things about. Both those of my profession or aspects of my personality would be interesting to talk about. 'cause i knew other introverted designers i had never really come across content from the perspective of an introvert designer. So i was like okay. Why not share my perspective mice stories. Kind of what. I'm experiencing on a day to day basis. Maybe other people will relate to it and some way so initially. That's kinda weist did. It was more like a personal thing. I wanted to take a bit of a break from just like typical design stuff and put out more personal content and a lot of people did resonate with it which was extremely surprising. More than i thought would it was reassuring to kind of see that all these people were somewhat similar situations at related to some of the points that i mentioned it was like okay. There are a lot of us and a lot of us kind of have those similar experiences and we should definitely talk about it more. I feel like that's not talked about enough except occasionally but it should be a point of discussion a lot. More often in the design industry I agree with that. I mean one of the interesting things about sort of what this past. Gosh i'd say two years now has done even with this. This pandemic is it's a lot of ways. Kinda flattened communication across different parts of the design industry. Like i know prior to all of this the people that really were out there that we're getting seen and doing stuff where the folks that were always at conferences and doing podcast and they were like outs being visual being visual they were out really like in a very big way in the community he could see who they were and now that everything is kind been condensed to online. It's made people that maybe aren't Social whatever reason have an avenue to also now be seen and talk about their work in a way that may be prior to this. They wouldn't have because it would involve you know stepping outside their comfort zone in that way. Yeah exactly now. you are in tanzania which. I don't know how much of our audience really knows a ton of bouts tanzania. Is that where you grew up yet. That is where i grew up. I moved right before i started need. So essentially like ninety nine percent life has been hearing tv. And that's kind of where i am now as well. Yeah totally our. I grew up. Yeah were you exposed a lot to like art and design growing up like your family. Anything no actually wasn't the only exposure i had to. Let's say arts was learning art in school and that kind of art was either music so growing up. I did play the piano or it was like drawing so the typical painting classes that you have at school. Those kind of what. I did but neither of those stuff that i thought i was great at. I goes bethan at the piano. But it wasn't something that i wanted to do full-time or anything like that. And when he came to a liberal arts like drawing and that kind of thing. I never thought i was good at it so growing up eventually going through high school i kind of lost interest in both those things when it actually came to the type of design. I do today. So like graphic design website design app design. We didn't do that at school at all. Something growing up. I was like oh yeah this is interesting i wanna do this by also think back then it was just not popular or like a thing yet. Graphic design maybe a certain extent but definitely not user experience user interfaces. I ain't at all so yeah. My past to actually becoming a designer started way later so towards the end of university. Because i didn't really have that exposure to art or a similar kind of growing up okay. Well let's let's talk about university. You went to the university of leeds and you majored in communication and media studies..

It's good to know that my voice has such a such a calming and soporific effects. I should put that on my tinder profile. No no but seriously thank you so much for the review. It really means a lot. Now for this week's interview i'm talking with elsa omri a visual designer and dr es salaam tanzania. Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are what you do. Yes my name is elsa amri. I am a visual designer from tanzania and currently i work as a junior visual brand identity designer with an agency in canada actually so more of a remote rural but i also do freelance work because a visual designer with clients here in dc and also few outside of tv so more international clients. I was until recently a student at humber college a school in canada studying user experience design. But i graduated technically a completed my gorgeous so up until recently. That's what i've been doing education wise and now primarily. I kinda just as a freelancer and is either with the company in canada. It's a bit about me. And what i'm doing right now. Or congratulations on your recent graduation. Thank you i'm curious. What's been on your mind lately. Like how are things going in general. It's definitely been a bit of a switch up. I was doing the course since january so kind of get used to the whole schedule of okay learning a couple of hours kind of working a group assignments and now it's like i have all this free time. I technically still have work. But it's a lot more free time than i was used to for several months so i think i'm still in the process of trying to adapt to all this extra time. I have and trying to use it more productively building myself up more as a designer but yeah it's kind of a limbo period for me right now that i guess we'll go away soon but that's kind of how feeling i'd say maybe aside from you just graduating like how have things like changed over the past year. Have you grown and improved in any ways. Like what's been what's been a big change from this year to last year from last year to this year i should say i definitely would say that. I have grown and improved because at the start of the year. I told myself. I wanted to really push myself in terms of promoting my work creating works actually creating content that i can promote and just really putting myself out there and wasted. I didn't do last year. And i've seen kind of the outcome of actually doing that in taking on that challenge so there have been like opportunities and roles. I've got an that. I would have never thought. I'd get to do at this point in my career. But i have been able to do simply because i was a lot more open and a lot more like a lot. More forward really reaching out to people connecting with people and just sharing my content and not being afraid to do that. So i'd say this year have been a lot bolder in that sense and i've seen that it's paid off in a lot of different ways which has been pretty awesome and yeah just hoping to keep that up and do even more as the year goes on as well. That is awesome. One of my favorite sayings as fortune favors the bold. And like you have to you have to shoot. You have to shoot those shots. You have to be bold and forward because it's like the worst thing that anybody's gonna say is no so you kind of have to especially if you're just starting out as a designer or you're starting to get your footing as a freelancer like you have to take those big wild shots in order to even like growing progress. No one's going to hold your hand and like you know. Tell you which were which way to go or anything like that exactly. I agree with that. You have to kind of put yourself outside of your comfort zone which can be scary but likely you're going to benefit from it in some way you just kind of have to take that first step and speaking of those big opportunities and we talked about this before we started recording. You've been doing some presentations with adobe over the past few months or so how'd you first get involved with them. A oh gosh. Let me try to think back. I think it'd be because i use the main designed program i use for like interfaces upside. Up design is a dubious. And that's kind of been my go-to for awhile. While so i was always using the product and over time. I guess you could say around last year or maybe even end up turning nineteen. I became more involved in the actual community. So like on discordance stuff. They have challenges and they have different channels that you can participate in so i started coming a lot more active within the community and even though that it helps directly i think kinda put me on a pass towards like you said doing the adobe stuff that i've been able to this year so around the start of this year like i mentioned previously decided to kind of put my content out there more and i made a twitter specifically where my design stuff which was kind of an interesting decision because i didn't think twitter would be effective at all personal twitter. I didn't tweet at all. So i even have any followers or anything kind of just used it to catch up with what other people are saying but somebody recommended to create a design twitter. Okay cool try this out. Apparently the design community is pretty awesome which it is. I ended up discovering. But i would share a lot of my content on twitter and i would follow all these other. Count- also adobe be as well and particular designers was in adobe that i admired look up to and in terms of like the adobe live opportunity that really came by chance. I can't even say that was directly me. It was more. Like i posted something cool or what other people thought was cool and it got a lot of region engagement and then somebody tagged one of the senior designers in adobe names to pinski to check my content out and he did and he liked it and then that same person said recommended that i should be an adobe live and for some reason that was more than enough because howard asked me. I wanted to be an adobe live. After that. And i said yes. I definitely want to be able to live. So that's kind of how that happened so kind of by chance. But i think it would have happened at all if i did. It obviously created twitter put more by content out there. I mean it sounds like you know. Initially you found a way to kind of get on dobies radar by doing things that are in the like community properties that they manage and things of that nature but then also you had the separate twitter. So you're really doing a lot of brand marketing with getting your name. They're getting your work out there. Which i think is a is a really. That's a really smart thing to do. I've worked for some sas companies that they try to community not in the best way. But it's interesting like the way that people get on our radar the way that we know like who are. Our fans are other people that really liked. The work is through the community stuff. You know. I mean especially if you're using something where like all your users are just user names and they don't have profiles or anything like that. It's hard to really kinda noble. Who are these people. You just sort of see them as like this aggregate set but if you're participating in our support forms if you're on a discord like you said or even twitter or something like that that's how we end up finding like.

Yeah now i'm not subscribing to that already comes through the history of what this means. Yeah nobody comes to the actions of people that has drained millions of lives. I do not want to be around and adult that at ten years old was willfully ready to lie to a girl perhaps a young woman that she had to hide in a cupboard for the rest of his life because he wanted her around. I did not wanna be around those adult and that is the problem yes. He's ten years old but again. According to the moment teachings at eight years old you can make your decisions. That's why you get baptized sir. Judger was old enough to know that what he was doing was harmfully catastrophic to other people it was willfully hurtful. He knew enough to disavowal saw the end. He knew. Yeah whether those feelings will mixed up on. It didn't really feels for many of those romantic feelings. Fucking doesn't amata establish this familial love that it's a bond between sister and brother and he doesn't even need to wonder if he'll alone because the war is over because you have a fucking sister at the end of it because he oh. Maybe this could have been romantic part old anyway fuck off. Yeah cheap writing chip story and he doesn't deserve a fucking oscar. Just because fucking ending will ship. It's the fucking green book reimagining again and again it's ridiculous. I don't even know. I feel like i'm i'm i'm just talking about our fucking end because i felt like if you're gonna sit with me through all that just to get a fucking pay off. The kid doesn't even fucking on the emotional trauma of everything. Because can kid or because i dunno reasons now now i didn't subscribe to the to portrayed as deep because a kid has kicked out the fucking window. He lied yeah. That's another reason why he needed to go on a low window. That's the least of the reasons he needs to go out the window. If you're bringing hitler into the screen. Because he wasn't in the book if you're betraying him and you bringing him back to life. The ending count make the fucking income on ally is not what he needed to go out for. Welcome one welcome all friends and lovers to the final stage of the final boss. It is urgency with his mother. Fucking her takes. I'm not even going to stand in the line of your punching sir. I just wanna make it very clear that i agree with you in every single facet and i do one and i do think i am sixty minuting myself. Her that i definitely would have not had so much unbridged with this film. If hitler was in in it and if there was more scrupulous critical thinking because i believe even though the prefrontal cortex isn't developed. I do feel like ten year olds. Still able to develop critical thinking that what you were told doesn't necessarily denote to the reality and the humanity of people that you come across in your day to day life. That talks with jour-jour at elsa i will never get over And that has nothing to do with hitler but also i was struggling to even get through the film as it was so i just want to say i'm in your corner of the ring brother..
