HowI express my creativity
Mostpeople believe that creativity is best applied in technical areas.However, it is an all-around aspect and encompasses conceivingsomething novel and valuable. Creativity is the art or capacity oftranscending conventional phenomenon, concepts, and patterns togenerate meaningful and fresh forms or elucidations. Progressiveness,originality, and imagination define the art of creativity, whichmeans one must envision an idea and transform it into an originalform to be labeled a creative individual. I have a natural techniqueof expressing my creativeness visually, particularly in the form ofdrawings and charts. For example, in presenting a proposal or idea toorganization’s stakeholders, I would couple up the contents of theproposals with visual design components like posters and graphs toheighten the presentations. Apart from visualizing designs, I amcreatively ingenious in solving problems that affect people on adaily basis. For me, a creative problem-solving process encompassesidentifying the various sources of a problem. Ascertaining thefoundation allows me to disregard other issues that may contribute tothe problem but are not inherent. The second phase involves groupingthe identified sources according to their level of contribution andsimilarity. The third stage encompasses analyzing the groups anddeveloping various solutions. I compare the solutions and utilize themost cost-friendly and effective.
Mynatural ability consents me to take data and package it in differentstyles, such as, graphic media, clear images, and arithmeticaldesigns. I practiced my creative skills during my previous Englishresearch paper, which required that I document the history of theexodus from Europe to the United States of America. The scope andlevel of creativity I had, permitted me to portray the number ofimmigrations using graphic design representations. To make the papermore interesting, I designed a sequence of colorful graphs that wentalong with the paper. To differentiate my research paper from otherexisting research papers, I incorporated the content with smallsketches and good-looking color structures. My creative mind allowsme to approach any problem differently depending on the situation andthe stakeholders involved.

Successesare attained through teamwork, inspiration, and determination. Thismeans a lot to people, as they cannot purport to be inclined to anyaccomplishment without collaborating with other people.
