If I could do what I love most, it would be making animated short films. I love the methods of telling a story in any form of entertainment, and I also love to draw so why not combine the two I enjoying doing into one art form. It is not up to me, but the people who would watch my animations, to decide whether my animations would change the world. The goal I hoped to strive for has been delayed by my negligence for my high school grades. I was denied to attend Columbia College Chicago, but was recommended to go to a community college to take general classes and show Columbia that I will be ready for college level classes. As of this moment I have not started community college yet, so in the mean time I have been making a small portfolio to have a better chance of getting into Columbia. I have been reading every day that I get a chance to and I have been studying films on my own; specifically the cinematography and subliminal psychological meanings in certain films. Once I finish community college I hope to get into Columbia. Once I get to Columbia I hope to stay and learn as much as I can. After that, I hope for the best.
