Stories are an incredible way of teaching morals, history, and knowledge. My dream occupation would be to tell stories by writing and directing films. I want to create new stories, as well as continue the old. I was diagnosed with depression in my early teens. Because of this, feeling happy, hopeful, or any positive feeling at all, was not easily achieved. Movies seemed to be the only thing that could make me feel good about myself. The skillfully executed ones were able to suck me into a story and make me feel a certain sense of euphoria. I want to make movies in order to inspire, entertain, as well as guide others to a more pleasant state of mind. I’m currently studying Psychology at U of I and looking towards a media/entertainment focused psych major. I want to use this to work my way up through the entertainment business and eventually make my own films. I will probably attempt this in California.
