Johanna Creak


About me

I am an avid instagrammer, a coffee drinker and a logical thinker. A recent graduate aspiring to create a bright, bold and advertising filled future for myself. I value the opinion of others and strongly support the art of discussion. A firm believer that nothing is black and white but rather a spectrum of shades.
