The Story Behind Freshmeet U.

Becoming a freelance web and graphic designer was not what I wanted, but it was more stable than being an artist, so I thought. Many people have their dreams deferred because of fear! The sad part is, the ones that are closest to us instill that fear.

All that's needed is time, support and education. That's why we're here, to make sure another dream doesn't succumb to fear.
