"You may play well or you may play badly; the important thing is that you should play truly" - NYU

NYU is global, urban, inspired, smart, connected, and bold. What can NYU offer you, and what can you offer NYU? (200-400 words)

please give the feedback in the most honest way possible.

These words by Mikhail Shchepkin "You may play well or you may play badly; the important thing is that you should play truly",

which I first encountered in the book "An Actor Prepares" by Constantin Stanislavski gave me a fresh perspective on acting as it is in

the modern world. The very description of what goes into creating a life, internally and externally, is what makes acting an exciting,
challenging task, and a very fulfilling profession to me. A lot of people think that acting is about expression itself. But I somewhat
disagree with them, because it is more than just expression: I believe that it is an art, the art of creating a reality, which is so

believable that it can be indistinguishable from the real world.

At NYU, there are a lot of paths to choose from at the Tisch Drama Department. From The Meisner to Atlantic Acting School, I will

never run out of options. I believe that an actor possesses empathy and spontaneity, and I will bring these qualities during my time
at NYU. An actor takes upon the character's essence during a play, all the while sacrificing his own, which is possible only when we

try to understand how others feel, and when we accommodate other beliefs, along with ours. To promote this understanding of
human nature, is what I aspire to do at NYU. I will avail each opportunity which NYU provides, to interact with a global audience like

the Study Abroad programs.

After classes, I may practise with the New Music Ensemble or the NYU Contemporary Music Ensemble and expand my horizons in
music composition, or explore New York City and listen to the stories of its many inhabitants. Just like the motto for the State of New

York, "Excelsior" which means ever upward in Latin, I will always strive to perform better every time, and with NYU and the plethora

of opportunities it provides, I will always stay true to this motto.

Hello abhayarathore,
This is some correction for your writing.

These words by Mikhail Shchepkin "You may play well or you may play badly; the important thing is that you should play truly",

which in the first time, I first encountered in thea book "An Actor Prepares" by Constantin Stanislavski,gaveit has given me a fresh perspective on acting as it is in the modern world. The very description of what goes into creating a life, internally and externally, is what makes acting an exciting, challenging task, and a very fulfilling profession to me. A lot of people think that acting is about expression itself. ButHowever, (it is ovoid using "but" in beginning sentence) I somewhat disagree with them, this is because it is more than just expression: I believe that it is an art, the art of creating a reality, which is so believable that it can be indistinguishable from the real world.
