Happy 3rd anniversary BlackWorkNow!

🎈 3rd ANNIVERSARY!!! 🎈 I thought this important anniversary is the perfect time to introduce myself.
I’ve delayed doing this post because I never wanted it to be personal, but I think I owe you people at least a proper introduction 😁
Hi everyone, my name is Serena, three years ago I created @blackworknow on Instagram and I am so proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish since then!

Thank you everyone for following and supporting during this years! 🥂

🎈 3rd ANNIVERSARY!!! 🎈 I thought this important anniversary is the perfect time to introduce myself. I've delayed doing this post because I never wanted it to be personal, but I think I owe you people at least a proper introduction 😁 Hi everyone, my name is Serena, three years ago I created @blackworknow and I am so proud of what I've been able to accomplish since then! Some of you already know me from chats, emails and collaborations. During these three years I've had the honor to work with so many talented people, I've featured so many talented artists, more than I can count. I've learnt so much from you guys, I've seen so many of you struggling, growing, becoming freelancers and live of your art! That's really awesome 😊 The journey so far meant so much to me. Running this page is the best school I could attended. I've learnt a lot about myself, I faced my fears, I tested my endurance and my patience. I learnt to listen, to be flexible, I found out how strong I am. I have also learned that I need to be firm, to stand up for myself because sometimes we need to. Finding a job in the art world is really something huge. It's not impossible although it's really difficult. I want to keep working to support you and help you. I'm planning to provide you guys with a several new ways to promote your work. I'd love to see many others of you growing and succeeding! Some of the news will be launched soon. I'm planning to do drawing challenges, interviews, giveaways, tutorials and so much more! Thank you everyone for following and supporting during this years! 🥂 . . #blackworknow #anniversary #3years
