I was sitting in a chair, in front of a large mirror, as someone was putting eyeliner on my eyes, I couldn't believe I was getting eyeliner put on me, never had I imagined this would happen. The scene around me was ordered chaos, as people worked together to move pieces of set, organize prop tables, and rehearse their lines. It was junior year, I had my first lead role in a show, a high school show, but nerve-wracking nonetheless. After my makeup was finished I had gone around and helped the rest of the cast with various little things to help prepare for the show until ShowTime came around. My heart skipped a beat (Or two) as the stage manager called places. I was terrified, yet I had the biggest grin I had ever had. It was in that moment, with the applause from the crowd for the opening of the show, to the terrified heartbeat in my chest, that I realized that I had found what I love to do, and that this is what was going to get me through high school to college where I can do theater. After getting fully immersed into theater I continuously built up my passion for the dramatic arts. The whole aspect of the ability to silence an entire theater filled with people, anticipating what happens next in the show, relying on you and your cast mates to guide the story, to give people these wide range of emotions, is a beautiful thing, to bring happiness, sadness, anger, frustration, to immerse an audience member so much into the life of the character you build, is what I love. I believe Flagler is the perfect fit for my interests, learning style, and goals, because of its outstanding reputation and its growing options of Majors and things to help succeed in life. With the perfect balance for its devotion to the arts as well as other great majors and small setting, Flagler is the college I strive to grow, succeed, and have the ability and life skills to achieve greatness in life after graduating.
