It can be terrifying to leave the security of a salaried job to pursue your passion, but this is precisely what Turkish artist Sena Runa did earlier this year. The former HR specialist now does paper quilling full time. Runa has the following advice for those yearning to do the same:
“Everything you create could be art, so if you believe that you make beautiful things, then you’ll see that everyone will agree.

I just believe in what I do and I know I’ll continue to create in the future.”
