Then you’ll like this. I’ve never publicly said this, but my dad was a local famous artist in his era.
He was on TV and radio for his amazing skill.
He could mix ANY colour perfectly, he could even tell me the number of the colour for the pantone or whatever system has all the colours. And in life, he always wanted to teach art.
He also always wanted to drive trains.
Both of these jobs he was shot down for because he was colourblind.
Seriously.. to him grass is red.
Although I can’t help you with the science of how he did it. Because he can’t explain it himself. He always said it was God, so maybe you’ll find solace in that.
He could never tell me the colour of what he’d mix, he couldn’t appreciate his art fully, but he loved to do it.
Now here’s the ironic twist that falls from the family tree-
I’ve never held down a consistent dream, always flip flopping on what I want to do in life and still am. But one constant was voice acting. It’s a skill that’s always fascinated me and inspired me to do many things.
I’ve read countless stories; always striving to get better. But here’s the irony. I’m not a strong reader… like.. at all.
I always say it’s been my dream to read a book! So many people I know read books and talk about how fantastic they are, but something always prevents me from doing it.
I also stammer and can’t keep up with words while reading outloud and trip up verbally… a lot.
I could have taken this as a sign to be like ‘nah man, voice acting isn’t for me’.
But instead I went down the route of ‘screw it, I’mma do it YOLO’. And now here I am today, still learning.
So in the end, don’t let labels hold you down. Don’t let labels define you.
