How do you determine success?

Many different things. At the moment I feel like success is just peace of mind, clarity in your direction, in where you’re going and what you’re doing and what you’re trying to portray and create. Success is also helping others, if I can make work that speaks to somebody else and really kind of guides them and helps them or just clicks with them. That’s success to me. Using your platform to shine a light on other people, if you enter a space that isn’t typically full of people like you; once you get on, once you make waves, pave the way for other people, help guide and mentor them. I feel like that’s success.
