All I’ve always wanted to do is paint. If I could paint for the rest of my life, I would be the happiest person on this planet. If I could earn a living from it, it’d be even better. Through my paintings I express myself, my emotions, my thoughts, my soul. Not many to do that anymore. Many hide their feelings, their thoughts, themselves away. I no longer wish to do that. I want to show the world just what I can do; who I am. In my paintings, I sometimes express my opinions on different topics including current events. The world would see what I have to say as part of the American youth. Through my paintings, they would listen to us. I want to achieve this dream of mine by going to the art school I’ve always wanted to go to: the Art Institute of San Francisco. There I would be taught further art skills that would help me succeed. I would become world-known. The world would know that the American n youth is not doomed. We are here to succeed. I am going to succeed.
