In case you haven’t had the opportunity to meet an exceptional professional with a beautiful soul this week, you should visit Purple Rock Scissors today and ask for Bridget Dombkoski.
She came from West Virginia to study at Full Sail, a school that she first thought it was a movie set. Bridget wanted to be part of a program she believes to be the most flawless in preparing her for a successful career, the MCBS program. At the MCBS program “There was such a wide range of different classes, from web design and video production to media psychology; and everything sounded so much fun, that it was an easy decision.” She knew it was a good idea, “it was amazing, challenging, stressful, exciting, beautiful, exhausting… but worth it” she explains.
No matter what she had to go through during her time at Full Sail, the MCBS program became an integral part of her life. Giving her skills in the area of media and communications making her into the person, she is right now. “The people I’ve met and the experiences I’ve had over the past two years have honestly helped me grow into my own skin. I feel confident that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be at this point in my life, and I have MCBS to thank for that confidence.”
It was her confidence and knowledge that gave her the chance to work for a creative agency as Purple, Rock, Scissor; where she defined as “Surreal, but awesome. I love it! Agency life never gets boring, and I learn something (or 10 things) new every day.” But that’s not the only project she’s working on, at this moment she’s trying to raise $2,000 for Make a Wish Foundation, an organization that grants wishes of children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.
Bridget is working hard to achieve one or her biggest goal “Make an impact” improving her skills and helping others to do the same. Because of that, she wanted to give a piece of advice for those who are still moving forward to get their objective “Stop being your worst critic, because it’s only limiting your creativity. There is no such thing as perfect, so stop striving for it. Strive for improvement and growth. It’s easier, I promise.” She knows how difficult it can be to get a degree, but she’s more aware that people often puts their own barriers in the process.
With this, Bridget demonstrates that she is still learning and growing after Full Sail, that our actions define us in the world. And for that, she’s the definition of courage, passion, and vision, everything in just one person.
