Ackkk, overall, I'm fine with my Tufts supplement except for my response to this one question...I wanted to juxtapose my interests in my response, but I don't know if this made my response extremely choppy...so if anyone can help me out, I'd definitely appreciate it!2. Self-identity and personal expression take many forms. For example, music, clothing, politics, extracurricular interests, and ethnicity can each be a defining attribute. Do you surf or tinker? Are you a vegetarian poet who loves Ayn Rand? Do you prefer YouTube or test tubes? Are you preppie or Goth? Use the richness of your life to give us insight: what voice will you add to the Class of 2014?
It is difficult to explain who I am in 200 words because the ways I express myself and my interests vary widely. I am loud and passionate; I am timid and tranquil. I enjoy spending time with friends; I enjoy being in my own world. Banksy's "There is Always Hope" moves me, but so does Pierre-Auguste Cot's "Le Printemps." Graphic t-shirts, jeans, and Nike Dunks reflect my upbeat, passionate personality, but the timeless elegance of Oscar de la Renta, Giorgio Armani, and Yves Saint Laurent also captivates me. I do not play sports, but I am passionate about soccer. I grew up listening to rap as a child, but I also grew up playing classical on the piano. The list can go on, but if I had to choose one word that would best describe myself, it would be "paradox."
As a "paradox" with varying tastes and interests, I hope to introduce different things I enjoy to fellow classmates and at the same time, learn about other forms of expression and interests that I an unfamiliar with. I hope I will be able to add my own individual voice to the class of 2014 while learning from the voices of other Tufts students.
