Abstract

My short animation follows the life of the main character, Yaminah, once she loses her job. After trying unsuccessfully to bounce back, she realizes that making a career of her hobby is what will bring her happiness. Because this project is targeting adults and teenagers, I want to stress the variety of ways to make a career of something you already love without external pressures of working in a corporate setting. The subject of the story, Yaminah, uses roller skating to de-stress and exercise. Most regular skaters you find at a roller-skating rink use it as a safe space with positivity and vibrant energy for making friends and learning new moves. Yaminah uses this energy and turns it into a career. I hope to inspire adults and teenagers alike to fall in love with a hobby that changes their life for the better.
