I dropped out of college a few years before starting I Am Young Detroit in 2009. I left school early to move back to Detroit and join the workforce. I just couldn’t with school anymore. I loved design and enjoyed learning, but wasn’t feeling the traditional classroom setting that college offered. I was a mover and was always in need of motion, anything other than sitting down at a desk drowning in monotony. I admired my friends who thrived in college, but it just wasn’t for me. I hated the routine.
