For most of my life, I have known that I want a job that makes me happy, rather than rich; something sufficient enough to sustain myself, of course, but a high pay has never been a goal of mine. I hope to become an animator after I graduate college. I plan on doing so by attending the Massachusetts College of Art and Design for a year, in order to enhance my skills so that I will be ready to enter the animation program at the well-renowned California Institute of the Arts.
While the art of animation is not something that directly affects the world in a big way, I hope to inspire others to make something great out of themselves and even change the world through my work. People like Walt Disney, whose work in the field of animation is known worldwide, may have done a lot for the world personally, but his work inspired even more people to follow their dreams; to keep working towards what they desire. I want more than anything to be able to do that. I want to fulfill my dream by creating, and in turn have those creations inspire others to follow their dreams, whether that be finding love, or even inventing a cure for a previously incurable disease. The magic of animation has the ability to go beyond the screen through the people who view it, and are able to take something from it.
