It’s never easy for me to say goodbye. To places, to people, especially to a place where I spent 1 year and 9 months working with talented people who pushed me to be the best version of myself in my field.
I’ve been with Saatchi for almost 2 years, and the decision to leave was never easy. I love the place, I love the environment, I love the company, I love the people I work with, I love everything about Saatchi. But it’s time for me to step out of my comfort zone and do something for my own personal growth.
Working in the advertising industry was something out of my comfort zone. I studied Multimedia Arts for 4 years and I never imagined I’d end up creating digital ads for big brands. It’s something I enjoy doing, yes. But most days I ask myself, “is this really what I want to do for the rest of my life?”
I accepted another job offer, and to be honest, I’m not even sure if that’s what I want to do for the rest of my life after leaving Saatchi. Right at this point, I’m not sure of anything. I’m not sure if I’ll enjoy the new role I accepted as much as I loved my role as a Digital Art Director. I’m not sure if I’ll love the people there as much as I loved the people in Saatchi. I’m not sure if things are better there in terms of workload. It’s a leap of faith I’m taking.
I’m sad that I’m leaving something that’s been a big part of my professional and personal growth. But I’m more than excited to go out there and explore. Here’s to hoping for better days ahead!!
