Paul Winters is 19 and his major is communications which is very fitting. Paul's artistic and creative ability would be writing and provoking people to think in ways that influence them. Paul believes that "if you can hold it in your mind then you can hold it in your hand" and keeps that in his everyday life. Also being creative is a gift that we were given since we were made in the image of God and is one of our desires to become and do great things. As a kid faith and knowing that everything that we ever want is already here if not in one form or another, we just need to become aware of it has helped him become creative. Paul defines imagination as "one of the most un-comprehendable faculties we have and it has the power to overcome any situation". Paul's number one role model to solve problems creatively would be Bob Proctor because he grew up in the depression and still has made it to the top. That Negative circumstances don't matter because its all in the mind. Paul honestly surprised me with his idea on imagination and life in general. Although his thoughts are way more complicated than mine, we have a lot of the same ideas. He's very nice and is easy to make friends with because he loves to talk to people.
|Good friend Paul Winters deep in thought as I ask for his view of role models and the meaning of imagination. He took a year off after high school before coming to OSUM because he didn't know what he wanted to do and wanted to "be creative"|
