I want to be better. I want to be happier than my parents. I want to be better off. But most of all I want to be happy. I have known what I was meant to do since I was little. I knew it the first time I watched the Oscars. These filmmaker’s words, their stories, their lives affected me deeply. I could do something better with my life.
I remember the movie that changed my life forever. Little Miss Sunshine. The story of a dysfunctional family that is struggling to make ends meet was something I could relate to. The movie was also just so beautifully crafted
Film. I want to make films. I want to write, direct, and shoot films that can touch an audience just like that film did to me. I want to be able to create a piece of art so moving and beautiful it can give someone hope. I want to be able to tell young people out there that they can achieve their dreams. I want to inspire them. I would write my own screenplays. I would do freelance film projects and submit work to production companies. I plan to network and hopefully be lucky enough to be employed by the likes of HBO and direct and film for some of their shows and films. I plan to write a screenplay so moving, and film a story so beautiful, and create a movie-going experience so wonderful that it can inspire the world.
