Personal Statement

Feeling out of place, Interest in fine arts
When born into a life of moving a broadened mind is nearly a birthright. Early on, I realized the giftings of transition, appreciating deeply the world around me being one. This adventurous life has weaved eras, connected disparate places and grown a heart that sees immeasurable beauty in the most divergent of places: empty buildings become caverns of stories, brick roads provide historic echoes of a "once upon a time" gone by and careening waves sing sweet songs of serenity. ...

Lit paper: Social Issues in any of the books we read in class. I chose Toni Morrison's Beloved (works cited below it) Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis says that the predominant defense mechanism human beings have is repression, which is defined, by Merriam-Webster, as: “a mental process by which distressing thoughts, memories, or impulses that may give rise to anxiety are excluded from consciousness and left to operate in the unconscious.” Repression is usually the result of a traumatic event,...

My advice about getting recommenders
250 Words
Get to know your teachers!! There are teachers that you love and some that you hate, so obviously go with the ones you love (no brainer). Teachers only want you to succeed, so find the ones that have always been there for you. One of my letters was from my freshman English teacher- he supported me every step of the way and took way more time out of his day to help me than...

Why I ultimately chose my school
267 Words
Go on tours. I cannot stress that enough. You need to see if you can see yourself at the university before you make a decision. Sure, they have a great program, but are you going to be happy there? When I was younger, we lived in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, which is where Wake Forest University is. If you haven't seen it, it's like it is out of a dream. It is the picturesque college campus. It's what I wanted for...
