This is the essay I've written, please critique and tell me anything you think would improve it. The word was requirement was 250 words MINIMUM with no max limit.
My overall career goal is to establish and advance myself in a career in animation at a certified and prestigious company that takes pride in what they create. I want to be a part of the creation of a game that will bring happiness and fulfillment to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of different people. Of course, these major goals require taking small steps at a time that slowly work towards the final product. Interestingly enough that is what animation is all about, working in small steps to achieve the final, exceptionally rewarding product. I feel that attending The Art Institute of Charlotte is my next small step that I need and desire to take so that I can achieve the reward waiting at the end.
The Art Institute of Charlotte is the perfect place to surround myself with other individuals who share my same passion for art and animation, both students and professors. These people and this school combine to create an environment that can take a young mind such as mine and give me the knowledge and skills required to breathe life into my ideas and goals. The curriculum is unique due to the fact that almost all of the courses are necessary and beneficial to my future career and is free of time-consuming filler courses that plague most other college schedules. By attending this college, I feel that my time will be put the utmost use by packing it full of knowledge and skills that I will take into the real world and into my future career that will ultimately help me achieve my goals.
Of course, I am not expecting these opportunities to be served to me on a silver platter, I understand that I will need to completely apply myself and put forth all of my effort in order to be successful. Sacrifices will need to be made and time will need to be accommodated for. I am willing to set aside my free time I could be using to play games or talk to my best friends in order to study and practice for class. Education is valuable and I will not waste my opportunity to learn about my blazing passion, therefore my studies and classes will take the top priority. I have always believed that one can only take as much as they give. My mindset was most likely shaped by my grandpa who worked as a farmer. By making me help him on the farm, he taught me about hard work and dedication and the rewards it would bring. Today, I hold myself to high standards and put in a level of effort and commitment into my education that my grandpa would be proud of.
My intense passion for animation and my attitude towards hard work are like a flame that can be kindled into a blazing fire, the kindling being this school. With my goals being so sizable, I desire to be the best prepared I can possibly be for my future, so I don't want to slack on the road to get there. That is why I've turned to the Art Institute of Charlotte. I could not be more excited about my future here.
