Changing the world is quite a daunting task; it takes an immense amount of knowledge, resources, finances and

influence! Some use their abilities to change the world with politics, business, or notoriety; I plan to reach the

globe through art of film. Not with massive amounts of money or power, but by simply touching individuals with

movies. I believe the world is only changed when a single person changes, and as a college film major, I’m able

to reach a multitude of people in a unique way.

With film, my objective is not to just make a story, but to immerse the viewer into an event. I seek to meld

fiction with realism by taking characters and asking “If they existed in our world, what would they do?”. In my

eyes, films ought to be stories that we carry with us and think about once we leave the theater, as each story

stirs the audience’s hearts and heads, giving them entertainment that will linger on after they’ve watched. But I

set out also to engage people, presenting questions they can answer when the screen goes black. Overall, for

me, directing a movie isn’t something I want to do just for a profit. Rather, I want to tell stories that can ultimately

help people understand what it means to be human and change their perspective on life. Therefore, my college

education is imperative if I am to impact the world, and I believe your scholarship can help me achieve this goal.
