will 1 / 1 Feb 3, 2014 #1I'm working on UCLAs alumni scholarship (due by may 4, 2014) and have to write a short autobiography about a life I did not live yet. I need some help and ideas, also is it ok to reflect back on my younger years assuming I'm older on page 165 to making a understanding on what I'm trying to say?Life is built on many obstacles, trials and errors. As I went through life, I faced many obstacles. Those obstacles are what made me who I am to this day. I dealt with many mind boggling struggles my whole life. I constantly doubted myself though my whole but there came a point when I told myself, "I can never call it quits." I worked very hard to get to where I'm at today and with that push I receive an award for my academic achievement for being a Latino when I graduated from community college back in 2013. Today as I work on filmmaking, I reflect on those struggling times to remember who I was and to keep pushing myself everyday. I still remember the time when I was approached by a friend in the halls of our performing art center in college, was asked to take on the lead role. Taking that role really made me think about what I wanted to do with my life and now I'm living the life I was wanted. Being an academy award winner for feature films, writing, and cinematography is truly amazing, but I would not be where I'm at today if weren't for my wonderful wife and kids. At one time I did not want have any kids, I thought they were annoying and gross but the more I saw kids and how smart they are, I knew I had to start a family. I completed my dream in becoming an award winning filmmaker, and now I want to start a new chapter in life. I put my career on hold for a short time so that I can start a new life with kids.
