Hi guys, this is my NYU supplement. Please be as critical as you can! All comments and suggestions are appreciated.
If you want me to help with yours just say so and I'll be glad to help!
TOPIC 3:What intrigues you? Tell us about one work of art, scientific achievement, piece of literature, method of communication, or place in the world (a film, book, performance, website, event, location, etc.), and explain its significance to you.
In the middle of a pristine neighborhood with polished fencing, pruned bushes and mowed lawns, lies an immaculately paved street. Smooth and freshly painted, it seems to go on forever, lined by perfect houses of cream and gold.
And walking along the sidewalk, I sensed that even the wind knew to be delicate, blowing a dainty breeze...
Such was the surrounding that as I leisurely followed the road, sometimes slowing to admire the sunset; it was at terrible contrast when I came to a sudden jerky stop. Terrible indeed, but I must deem it appropriate. Because in the middle of two beautiful houses, one cream based and the other gold, sat a tree. Smack center in the street.
With twisted roots waging war with the concrete, the plant drooped in exhaustion. It knew as a seed that it was going to be an uphill battle but still courageously broke through the coating. Some may deem it stupidly stubborn but its existence is proof to them all that an uphill battle wasn't a pointless battle. It looked into my eyes and said, "Have faith."
A dozen failed attempts to convince charities of the Cultural Interaction Community Project's maturity; I imagine the tree telling a story about its countless attempts to break through concrete and tried again. A failed biology test brings up a picture of its scarred body and I knew that one couldn't break me. Tree, your words have echoed through the years. One day I will visit and tell you that your faith is hope to the hopeless and strength to the repressed.
