What is Ampersand Squared?
I represent this site with the ampersand symbol squared because it truly exemplifies the power of "and".
In mathematics, to find the square of a number, you multiply it by itself. To square something is to raise it to the power of 2, the result of which, is always a greater number. What a concept!
Your "and" is a representation of you and thus, raising it to the second power generates a greater result.
I'll say it again.
Look within yourself, raise yourself to the power of you, and become greater.
That is Ampersand Squared. That is the power of And.
Just as the square shape is a sturdy and faultless design, so are you.
It is the freedom to be who you are without holding back and thus, it is a representation of you as a whole person. A complete form with all of your hidden talents and it urges you to stop hiding them. It is a refusal to follow one pathway to success and, instead, following many.
I spent years trying to figure out who I wanted to be and what I wanted to do until I discovered the ampersand in me.
There is an ampersand in all of us.
An intellectual nerdy type with more interests than she knows what to do with.
I grew up on the shores of Puget Sound with my big sister. We lived on Whidbey Island about an hour away from Seattle. Needless to say, the mountains, those amazing ocean views, and the best coffee were very early influences in my life. As a child I felt like I had the world at my fingertips.
Now that I'man adult, the scenery has changed but I've always been a very creative person. I love writing and drawing and anime and movies and music and books. Those are only a few of the "and's" in my life but what I'm truly passionate about is discovering new things that fascinate and inspire me to find more new and incredible things.
The journey is never ending and I'm always excited to see what's next!
