Hello! Welcome to Maxwell.me!
My name is Maxwell Arnold. I am a fashion student, and aspiring lawyer from Toronto, Ontario. I am currently attending the Manchester Metropolitan University (in central Manchester, England) to finish a BA (Hons) in International Fashion Practice. From there, I plan to head off to law school to study either consumer justice law, or patents and trademarks.
It's all a work in progress, with no entirely firm plans. I like to live by the Blake Shelton lyric of "you've got nowhere to go, if you've got all day to get there". Thus, I am in no rush to commit to, nor to undertake any particular course of action.
My interests, besides fashion, include technology, consumer justice (especially in regards to consumer privacy), mixology (many of my thought patterns consist of dreaming up new cocktails), writing, and thinking up theories that some think to be ridiculous (such as why the vast majority of "job protection" laws are the reason why unemployment is so high).
I am a proud high school dropout, who never went back to finish. I maintain that the widely-believed idea of "you have to finish high school" is grossly ill-founded. As time permits, I am currently developing the framework for a scholarship foundation, so that I can help to fund, and provide informational resources to high school dropouts who wish to attend college. I don't want money, or misperceived ideas about "entry requirements" to be a barrier for any high school dropout to go after what they truly want out of life. Those are all things that held me back, and I don't want any other person who struggles in high school to be put in the same situation of uncertainty.
This website's purpose is to be a "brief introductory" about myself. Just so that if you Google me, or are referred to my webpage in some way, your curiosity, in whatever form it might take, can be satisfied. I find that most of us have a weakness in asking questions (in terms of not knowing what questions to ask), and would rather be faced with an abundance of information, where no questions need to be asked. Often, the very best questions are ones that do not occur to us. With sufficient information present, the curiosities we have can become satisfied without further inquiry.
I will conclude my introduction at that. Please see below for my professional portfolio, and some musings of mine. If you would like to get in touch, please feel free to do so through any of the communication methods as outlined below...
