I plan to support myself financially by maintaining a career in the entertainment industry acting. I want more than anything in this world to be able to support myself by acting because acting is my passion. I want to wake up everyday and do something that I am in love with. I do not have the luxury of a stable home life and I will need to work incredibly hard to live off of my passion, but I do not care. I need to be in a creative environment or I feel mundane, and my creativity is at its peak when I act. I love the freedom acting gives me. Acting allows me to take a character and interpret the character the way I see her. I get to experience emotions I would not normally get to explore. I become someone else and escape my life for hours at a time. Nothing else matters to me at that moment because I am not myself. I think and feel like the character because in that moment I am the character. There is nothing more magical than bringing the imaginary to life. The acting community is the most accepting group of people I have ever encountered, and I feel at home in
My future goal is to become an Occupational Therapist. They help patients to recover and improve skills needed for daily living and working. I plan to attend either Gannon or St. Francis University to pursue my degree in this field. Both schools offer the five year program which combines a bachelor and master degree. My plan is to pass my knowledge onto the people I care for to better their quality of life. I chose this career path because I love working with people and positively impacting them. At college I will be earning a degree while learning how to adapt to life changes and bettering myself. After I earn my degree, my second goal is to raise a big happy family. By being financially stable with my own college degree, I will be
As I review the Conley Readiness assessment I notice I have two “stronger” areas and two “weaknesses”. My strongest point happens to be in the thinking category. My strong point in the thinking category is said to be communication. I like to think i communicate well with people around me, whether I'm at work, at school, or just anywhere I tend to go in my free time. I also know where to go when I need information on a paper. My strengths make me a better student because in my everyday school life I need to know and understand how to think critically. We need common sense and to be able to get the help we wish to gain through communication, and thinking logically.
From time to time I like to look back at my life and see what I have accomplished and how meaningful my very existence is to both my family and others. When I ponder this I often look at my father’s past and see how he aspired to the great man he is now. I see how he has made his fair share of mistakes and how he took it and kept moving. He has told me many times about how he never thought he would be anything important because of his intellectual capabilities and how he managed to squabble his way into medical school than the Naval Academy which changed his life for forever. I look at my father now and see the man he is now and see how he let his dreams become realities and how he worked for them instead of giving up and feeling sorry for himself like many people often act.
As a child, I had no father to guide me on the path to maturity. Even in the idyllic scene of a father and son playing catch, as I tossed the football onto the roof of my house by myself, the roof replaced the person that I was supposed to learn the essence of manhood from. Although my early and painful realization of his absence was distressing, I learned how to rise above my disappointment and become my own motivation. Throughout my life, I have been knocked down, but I was never defeated–that is what defines me as a fighter. Relentless in achieving my goals, I will myself to succeed despite all that deters me.
One strength that is substantive to my career that I believe I have, is empathy. I have always had such an efficacious sense of empathy with the people around me.
My greatest academic strengths include critical thinking,critical reading, creativity, listening skills, and perseverance. I’ve gained these strengths by challenging myself academically. My greatest academic weaknesses include a short attention span, cramming, and not being a good test
“There are so many accountants but it’s so difficult to get somebody, who is a new graduate, but already knows [the job]. [Their] college education should have prepared them for that.” – Lucy Tarriela, Asst. Treasurer, Employers Confederation of the Philippines.
To begin with, my top strength is positivity. According to Rath, “ You are generous with praise, quick to smile, and always on the lookout for the positive in the situation” (Rath p141). I believe it is always important to be positive regardless of how bad a situation is. My job is to motivate others when they become pessimistic of a certain task. This strength is essential in both school and a career as neither a classmate or a co-worker wants to surround him or herself with negativity that makes for a long day. This strength will
As an actress and stagehand for the New York Civic Theatre, I am committed to a career in the
From being an actor in front of the camera, I didn 't think I would be just as passionate working from behind the camera as well.
Believe it or not, sometimes a gracious action can bring a huge influence on a person. When I read the introduction that instructor Heller wrote, there is a sentence she wrote: “Sometimes the most influential moments in our lives are smaller moments, events that we may not recognize as influential until years after the experience.” For some reason, I related to it strongly. My story is about my high school experience. Also, I will share some significant moments in my life, and how these smaller moments changed my personality.
What is acting? Acting is where one person takes in the role, behavior, attitudes, and other traits of another person or character in a script for either a film or play. With an acting major you will spend a lot of time working on your body and the way you move on stage. In most acting majors you will have six main classes that you must take to graduate. You will have to have a class for acting, voice for actors, movement, improvisation, theatre history, and maybe an actor coaching class depending on what college you go to. Depending on the college or University you attend, these may be the same or they may be different. (The College Board)
My high school experience was a long, frustrating learning experience. I didn’t know what to expect, or what I was getting myself into. Nobody gave me the tools to understand the main focus of each year.
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are merely players,” (Shakespeare), meaning the whole world is like a stage show and humans are the actors. The quote proves that life can imitate art even when it’s not recognized, art is everywhere you look, in places you never thought to look. Theater is represented in any imaginable way, so why is it not good enough for a simple required subject in school? Fine arts such as drama, dance, and art programs get cut from high schools due to the expenses that go into them. People say theater is not needed for the future, no help in the “real world”, and it’s not a life skill. However, theater is much more than an elective or an “easy A”, theater is something that will stick with you for the rest of your
