I was very encouraged when my daughter said she has a hopeful attitude toward her future… even though she is unsure she will go to college because of the stress of school, she is considering other opportunities.
One of her other interests other than art is tinkering with clocks. So she is thinking of going into horology. This is the art of clock making and repairs.
She has actually been learning about local clock makers in the area with the help of her best friend.
She wants to contact them after she graduates and explore the possibility of an apprenticeship with one of them.
I think that something like some type of apprenticeship would be good for Allie, because I think this is her learning style… hands on learning rather than book learning.
This is her own initiative. She is going to make the calls, rather than having us make the calls. This is her stepping beyond her own comfort zone as talking on the phone is very stressful for her.
So proud of her!
