23 today…

I thought I would do a review of the start of my freelancing career in 2014, as January is a time to reflect on the previous year, but also today is my 23rd birthday and I am looking forward to the upcoming year. I am now in full health and feel it is really important to look back on your starting years, to remember the struggle and hard work that is put into making a steady ground for, hopefully, a successful career. I will keep it brief but also include some photos 🙂
