Hello everyone! I'm Maulika Jain, I was born on 27th October, 1999 in New Delhi, India. I've done my schooling from Delhi Public School, Mathura Road, New Delhi and did my bachelors in Exhibition and Spatial Design from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad.
I'd been thinking about documenting my professional journey for a very long time. Mainly because I've been very confused as to what I want to do. So I hope, continuously writing about what I'm gong through might give me some clarity. Don't get me wrong, I loved my time at NID. The people I met, the faculties, my batch mates, my friends, the learnings I had, I'll be forever grateful for that. I could see such a stark contrast in my. personality after NID. I was much more confident, independent and open.
But now when I look at myself, I feel lost. I don't know what I want to do or who I am supposed to be. This is a scary feeling. There is this constant feeling that I am disappointing others for not knowing what I want. At the moment, I want to get some job experience and know what really is required. One of the things I do not like at all about doing a job is that I have to be answerable to my boss or authority or whoever is in charge. I want to be my own person, to be able to make my own creative steps. I want to work WITH someone, not FOR someone. But for that, I have to start from level 1. I do want to do masters but I'm not sure in what or from where. There are amazing colleges out there but I have to be sure.
So yeah. Maybe writing about it will give me some clarification. This space is for me to share my experiences as a young designer/artist. Maybe one day I'll look back at my journey and be grateful for all the challenges I faced. I hope so.
Thank you for taking out the time to read!
