I used to be a kid who loved to watch anime.
I loved it.
In fact, it was the only thing I loved.
I even had a collection of anime I wanted to watch in my room and a shelf full of books.
But when I was younger, my parents stopped watching anime and I was left alone.
I remember thinking, What if anime were actually a real thing?
I was never able to find my own anime.
When I started making anime drawings, I began to make my own story.
And now I am drawing my own stories.
In a video posted to her Facebook page, artist Eileen Lee-Foster shared the story of how she started drawing her own stories and the lessons she learned from her parents.
Lee-Floster said that her parents, who are divorced, were supportive of her.
“I thought they would be proud of me if I had a successful career, and they weren’t,” she said.
“They just assumed that I would make something of myself.
They were happy that I was learning and making something out of my own experiences and dreams.”
Eileen shared that she started making her own manga and comic books when she was a teenager and had been drawing comics since then.

Lee said she was drawn to drawing as a child because she thought it was a safe outlet to express herself.
“It was a time when it was acceptable to be afraid,” she explained.
“You were afraid of death and things like that.”
Lee-San, who grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, said that while she was an avid gamer, she never thought she would ever be a professional illustrator.
“My parents never encouraged me to pursue anything,” she told CNN.
“As far as drawing, they were very supportive of me but it was never about what I was drawing.
It was just me.”
In her video, Lee-Faust shares the story that her mother encouraged her to pursue.
“When I was growing up, my mother taught me that it was OK to be scared of death,” she shared.
“She also taught me to never think that I could be anything more than a child and just be myself.
My parents encouraged me, but they also made sure that I never became obsessed with anything.
They did the same for me.”
Lee and her mother also encouraged Lee-Fu, who was an aspiring actor.
“The older I got, the more I became interested in the arts and wanted to become an actress,” she recalled.
“So, they encouraged me by saying, ‘If you want to do this, then go ahead.’
Lee’s parents taught Lee that drawing was important. “
But my mom never thought that I should do this.”

“And as I got older, it started to become my hobby,” she added.
“For years, I never thought of myself as an artist.”
