Pavel Sokov graduated from the John Molson School of Business in Montreal in 2011. He got an office job in the marketing industry, but in 2014, he decided to pursue his dreams and start a career in arts. So he quit his job and moved to California to learn drawing and painting at the Watts Atelier of the Arts. He learned to use oils, charcoal, and graphite for the first time in his life, and by November, one of his artworks was featured in the cover of the Time magazine.
Pavel said that pursuing his dreams resulted in the best year of his life.
I think his story is pretty inspiring, and it’s the perfect example of why you should NEVER EVER give up on a dream.
