My biggest passion is art. From films to paintings, I have a deep appreciation for all things artistic. I feel that slowly but surely, the element of creativity is being taken out of schools. Children are being given less recess time, fewer hands on craft activities, and elective classes are considered less and less important every year. Creativity and imagination have been a huge part of my life and a huge part of my personality. If I was able to earn a living doing what I love I would be able to create and teach art. It is not simply a way for people to explore themselves and their own thoughts. Art is a universal language that can be understood throughout the world, and is able to bring people together from far distances to connect and learn from each other. If my dream was able to come true I would study art in school, get into a good art program, and really involve myself in art clubs and programs. The later in college I would study abroad, exploring new places and meeting new people who could help me achieve my goal and make connections. In the end, I hope that I get to have these experiences to get a job where I can connect people through their work such as an art curator or a translator and interpreter. As long as I can bring people together with the subject I love I will have achieved my goal.
