I decided to make my submission for the people who are struggling to find their own voice. I think it’s something we all struggle with at some point and I hope this post can inspire someone.

When you’re first starting out, it might be hard; trying to find your own style, make awesome work, and be recognized. You have great taste, and have great ideas, but you struggle to actually make something you’re proud of. Don't worry! We all go through this. It’s a journey; and it’s important to keep going & keep exploring. Don’t try to follow someone else’s path, because that will lead you no where. Instead, make your own path. Take risks and experiment. Reference hundreds of people, not one. When you start looking at multiple sources of inspiration and not just at a few, you’ll see yourself grow. At this point you’ll likely start to find your own style as well. It takes time though. Keep working hard, be nice, and stay humble. People will notice you.

Thanks @Shopify & Dribbble for hosting this awesome contest :)
