Please leave your comment! The question is Please tell us why you selected this specific academic program and what other academic programs interest you. (minimum of 10 words, max of 200 words)*

integrative education with Women and Gender studies



"Daddy, you can't see what I see and I can't see what you see. So how can I know what you see?"
"Good question. I never thought of that. That's why we need a camera."
-Yi Yi: a one and a two (2000)

Since I was in junior high school, I started taking pictures with a film camera. I wanted to share beautiful things in front of me with my friends. During the winter vacation, I got an opportunity to participate in the Myung Films Movie Camp. For 2 days and 1 night, I met the film columnist, producer, director, and professor and had time to think about what kind of film I'd like to shoot. The most impressive thing at the camp was a dialogue between Ting-Ting and NJ in Yi Yi. Thus, I set the goal of becoming a director-and-cinematographer who can shoot films that resemble reality and show the other half that people cannot see. To achieve my goal, I will keep trying to find my own tool to see the world through integrative education with Women and Gender studies and apply for study abroad programs to listen to various stories of life all around the world.

You did not provide a proper response to the question. You were asked about why you chose your major, not how your interest in your major developed. Your discussion isn't really good because you failed to properly explain why you chose your major. Why did you choose this specific academic program? Respond based on your interest in the course. What is it? Photography? Creative Arts? Multimedia? I am not sure what you are trying to explain here because you failed to touch on the subjects related to the course that helped you decide on this major. The mention of Women and Gender Studies also lacks proper development. You have to remove the useless exchange of dialogue at the start and then, revise the total essay so that you can better represent your interest in the courses as indicated by the discussion prompt.
