    I would say it's all down to what kind of designer you are and want to be. If you're into user experience, information architecture or concept design the visuals of your website isn't as important as the content. But if you're more of a user interface or graphic designer the look and feel of your personal site is one of the thing selling you as a designer. If I see that it's basic Bootstrap without customization I might not get that impressed.

    That said, starting from a design system and building on to it, customizing it to something neat and unique works for me. With a design system you can get a good base to start from.

    Good luck!
