It was third grade when I first heard my daughter described as “one of them”, one of those “creative types”.

What’s wrong with us creative types?”
Episode 3 of Living life as a Visual Thinker is inspired by my personal mission to change the lives of visual thinkers. I want to share with you why I do what I do and I want to invite you to join my mission to impact education for visual learners.
