dessertfoxy 1 / - Sep 10, 2015 #1Hello, I'm Carolina from Brazil and I'll compete for a scholarship.This is my first draft to the personal statement.English isn't my first language and even if I have an advanced domain, I'm insecure with this essay.I hope you help me with grammar, opinions and information to add to this essay.-----------------Even with a common purchasing power, I always had the best study thanks to my parents that realized and believed in my abilities since I was little.With sixteen years old, at the beginning of high school, I had a great performance in the ENEM (National High School Exam by Brazilian Ministry of Education) and I had a chance to join the UDESC (Santa Catarina State University). At that time, I could not engage in the university studies because of my young age and I had not graduated from high school yet.Unlike my classmates, because of my active personality, I always liked to study and learn new things. Adventuring in different subjects, I learned, on my own, the English language and, despite having made some classes in arts and design departament, I often perfected and trained alone, mastering programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Sony Vegas and Corel Draw.I was born into a technological era, so the visual artistic expressions and the Internet have always been present in my daily life and, along with my desire to draw attention of people through art, I realized my passion for the visual communication department. Despite never having been a paid and standardized professional, because I do not have a degree in design and I am not old enough to work in Brazil, I worked as a designer for some blogs and websites and I edited videos to some Youtube channels voluntarily.Apparently, many talented designers graduated from South Korea and some of the most famous arts and design universities are also there, thus sharpened my determination to learn in Korea as well.The opportunity to participate on the KGSP will encourage me to be more creative, living the strong influence of Korean culture, and to become a more experienced and intellectual person, contributing to my moral training and my maturity. I believe that during this program, being coached by a respected institution in Korea, will be an advantage for my future career and for my apprenticeship, thus, I will be able to contribute in the future in the labor market.
