Originality and boldness are all qualities I strive for in my artwork. I want my art to lure people into its subject matter. Before an artwork can conjure the eyes of humans though, an imaginative idea and time for production must be allotted in order to bring the artwork to existence. To obtain high quality results, my personal preference of motivation is competition. I am a highly competitive girl, and my desire to stand out inspires me to work hard...

Topic: A Significant Experience I knew going into the eighth grade that I would have a tough year ahead of me. It was my first time taking three honors courses and having to participate in the science fair. However, I did not expect the school year to be as stressful as it ended up being.

It was the day of my first dance competition and the day a valuable lesson came to life. On the morning of the competition, I was as sprightly as a million dollar lottery winner. I was an ambitious eight-year-old girl getting ready for a solo performance in front of real judges. My hair was being pulled back in a beautiful bun; makeup was gracefully distributed on my face. I was being treated like royalty. I was poise as can be...

A successful, satisfying career in art is a dream I have coveted for a long time. When I was younger, I wanted to become a teacher, but as I grew older, I realized that a natural talent for art is not worth pushing aside; it's worth pursuing.

Though I picked up English fairly quickly, I still had a heavy accent, and there were certain words I could not pronounce correctly. I remember how people would look confused when I would say a word incorrectly, and to this day, I feel insecure that I’m not pronouncing a word properly. In the fourth grade, I had a teacher who brought out my insecurity about...

My TV Obsession With two working parents and no car for me to drive, I spend a great amount of time at home. Therefore, boredom always finds its way into my life. There are activities available to deal with this problem, like reading a book or riding a bike.

A well rounded person, who possesses extraordinary abilities and can form knowledgeable opinions, is, in my belief, one of the most valuable contributors to society. I, an exceedingly ambitious human being, yearn to one day possess that value and become the next Renaissance woman. Assuming this role would mean that I would have to further my talent in art, acquire new skills, and, all the while, become an enlightened thinker. To do so, taking liberal arts courses to compliment my...
