These are my three supplement short answers for NYU. The limit is 500 characters so please keep that in mind. But please don't be afraid to be harsh I am looking for edits in grammar and content. Thanks :)Please tell us what led you to select both your anticipated academic area(s) of study and the NYU school / college / program or the Abu Dhabi campus. What interests you most about your intended discipline? Mention any extracurricular or non-school-related activities or experiences that demonstrate your interest.
My fascination with international relations grew out of from my love of history. As a studied history I began to recognize how the political and cultural traditions of nations influenced their current government and international actions. I became captivated by the shifting balance of power and understanding the new dynamics of the century. After attending a LeadAmerica conference on foreign policy I became most interested in studying how diplomats work together in the international arena.NYU is 'In and of the City' and 'In and of the World.' What does the concept of a global network university mean to you? How do you think studying in New York City, Abu Dhabi, or one of NYU's global sites would change you as a person and equip you to build cross-cultural relationships at NYU and beyond?
A global network university urges students to go experience the world for themselves, either by studying aboard for a semester or taking an internship. Students learn to embrace the diversity of humanity and use it as a tool to solve global problems. If I had the opportunity to study in NYC or NYU's global sites I would encounter a range of people and personalities. In my interactions with these people I would learn to find the commonalities of experience that form the basis of relationships.If you had the opportunity to bring any person - - past or present, fictional or nonfictional - - to a place that is special to you, who would you bring and why? What would you share with that person?
I would like to take Gabriel Garcia Marquez to the hill that my house sits upon and that overlooks the valley in which my hometown lies. Here I would ask him to help me find the beauty in the town and its inhabitants. At times I feel I can never appreciate the place that I come from like Marquez appreciates his native country of Colombia. I would like to ask Marquez how he came to feel such affection for his country, but I feel he would reply, "Through memories tainted with nostalgia."
