Xavier Romo Personal Mission Statement

My name is Xavier Romo, and this is my Personal Mission Statement. I am a student at Exceptional Minds Academy in Sherman Oaks, and I am also a freelance Graphic Design Artist. I want to take a few moments to tell you about myself.

Over the course of my life, I have achieved some amazing goals which I didn't initially think were possible. These goals have included graduating from college with an AA and AAS in History, becoming a Graphic Design artist and being a full-time student at Exceptional Minds working in VFX and Production Management.

One of my worries with attending Exceptional Minds was that I hadn't had much experience with art. That being said, I quickly learned that I am talented in design and have put together a series of great collages using Adobe photoshop (which I am ACA certified in!)

Movement (2016) Collage using different components and done in my first year at Exceptional Minds. Adobe Photoshop.

The Mind of a Street Artist. (2016) Collage made of selections from own Photography. Street Art done by local Los Angeles Artists. Adobe Photoshop and done in my 2nd year.

Brief History of Art (2017). Collage done on Photoshop at Exceptional Minds. First presented at the 2017 Profectum Conference in Pasadena, CA.

My core values in life are to do the best that I can with being successful in life, helping out with my family, finding ways to give back to my community, and helping people who are ambitious work towards their goals. I am very much influenced by art in my work, and growing up in Los Angeles and loving LA street culture are big parts of my life as well.

Aside from my schoolwork, I also work as a freelance graphic design artist. I learned about these skills at my school, but have been reaching out for the past year and have been working with an organization called Workshop 2.0. I now have over half a dozen books that I have done layout work for, and even have my name in two of them.

In April of 2017, I got the chance to represent Workshop 2.0 at the Los Angeles Festival of Books, which take place at the USC campus. While there, I had the opportunity to help sell the books that I have been working on, sign copies of the books, and share about my experiences in life being on the Autism Spectrum.

With all that I have done, it is very important to me to be part of a community. Whether this is in my school or through my work, my direct community or places that I volunteer, I always love finding ways to give back.

Through all of my work and the lessons that I have learned in life, I know that I am on the right path to success and cannot wait to see what the future holds for me, and I look forward to seeing where technology will go from here as well.

My whole life I have known that if you want good things in life, you have to work for them. That is something that I have been doing up to this point, and will continue to do for the rest of my life. I know that great things lie ahead of me, and I just need to keep reaching out for them. This is who I am, and it is who I will continue to be.
