Imagine a story about a compelling protagonist with a message that resonates...written by you
REWRITE YOUR NARRATIVE
CHANGE THE WORLD
By telling a story of how you became the awesome person you are today.
Learning to be the protagonist in my life has been my biggest challenge. I pushed myself into the background again and again, making all the mistakes as I tried to conquer my passivity and get my life in order. Each day I learned to face my fears with a little more patience and courage...but when I taught myself how to transform my own emotional journeys into fictional narratives, I ended up with a badass set of tools that have helped me face my challenges in both life and work.
Not to mention resulting in a story I was passionate about, and confidence that I could create something that could have real impact on the world.

Designer & Art Director
"Besides giving us an incredibly rare content with academic quality, Jessie’s mentorship took me on a personal and creative journey beyond my every expectations. As intended from the beginning, I ended these 12 weeks with a well developed original story and costume concepts for my portfolio, but we did so much more than that! I also learned many creative strategies for brainstorming, exploring ideas, and a hardly ever present self-compassionate approach during the creative process."
