Hey everyone! Samuel Johnson here! Welcome to my aesthetically pleasing portfolio. Come in and make yourself comfortable. Look around, get to know me. On a Monday evening in 97, I was born. Atlanta, Georgia is where I was born and raised . I am the youngest of eight children. While growing up, nothing really spectacular happened. We were a middle-class black southern family just trying to make it. As a child, I always loved the aspect of design; that’s why at one point of my life, I wanted to be a fashion designer. I was teased and bullied a lot as a child but that made me who I am today. Going through such a dark time in my life, I learned to love myself and be proud of who I am. Once I start doing that, things began to change for me. For instance, I became popular in school and won the titles of homecoming king and prom king. But after high school, I kind of hit a wall because I really didn’t know what I wanted to do. The only thing I practiced in high school was culinary arts. However, I quickly fell out of love with culinary arts. The only part I wanted to do was designing with the icing – not even assembling the cake to be put in the oven, just designing with the icing. So, I took a semester off from college just to think about exactly what I wanted to do. After taking an entire semester off, I decided to go into the arts field and that’s where I found my passion for interior design! As of now, I am an interior design major. After I earn my bachelors in Interior Design, I am going to real estate school.
