What Creativity means to me.
When the word creativity pops in my head I immediately start to think of the word style. If you think of the word style, to me it is a way of creating a certain type of creative form that I would call my own. There are lots of activity’s and hobbies that I enjoy to do.

I now know to respond with giving an example of what I like to do and how I can get continually creative using my example.
