Any replies would be helpful, Grammar, Flow, answering the prompt, anything that doesn't make sense? Honestly Hit me with how you feel !

Why are you drawn to the area(s) of study you indicated in our Member Section, earlier in this application? If you are "undecided" or not sure which Brown concentrations match your interests, consider describing more generally the academic topics or modes of thought that engage you currently. (150-word limit)

Writing is more than a means to communicate, It permits me to take people to places they cannot go, create environments from imagination, give individuals the opportunity to feel my perspective.

...

Tell us where you have lived - and for how long - since you were born; whether you've always lived in the same place, or perhaps in a variety of places. (100-word limit)

Everywhere I have lived, I find a sandy shore, I am beckoned to it, whether the Arabian Oman Gulf, muggy tropics of Sri Lanka, dazzling seaside of morocco, crisp British seas, or where I refer to as homeland, Australia.

...

We all exist within communities or groups of various sizes, origins, and purposes; pick one and tell us why it is important to you, and how it has shaped you. (150-word limit)

It may seem Cliche to use my family as a group, however due to my grandparents emigrating from Britain, I have 8 blood relatives in Australia, rendering us an incredibly close-knit family. In my eyes we are Ennead, mythologically a group of 9 Egyptian deities. My family like the Ennead educate one another, our brood encompasses incredibly diverse characters and skills to provide, they have taught me the significance of valuing everyones talents regardless of their perceived importance. Cherishing individual talents leads to cooperative and encouraging environments to share ideology and intellect, my family have given me the best foundation to approach education, interacting with peers and faculty on both social and academic levels is not only second nature, but has built the foundations of my morals. Valuing communication, involvement, and support in coalition with academic and community driven goals.

Why Brown? (200-word limit)
Upon researching Brown, I encountered the curriculum outline and Francis Wayland's quote regarding students right to "study what he chose, all that he chose, and nothing but what he chose." The opportunity to tailor your degree to suit individual passions is incredible. It's inspiring to think that Brown had a president and now a culture who whole heartedly believe and nurture individual pursuits of education.

"I first dove into writing at age 9, enlightening my performance arts teacher that I could re-write 'A midsummers dream' much better. I was assigned the role of bottom " this sentence is kind of unclear - I don't totally understand what you're trying to convey.

Everywhere I have lived, I find a sandy shore, I am beckoned to it, whether it be the Arabian Oman Gulf, muggy tropics of Sri Lanka, dazzling seaside of M orocco, crisp British seas, or where I refer to as homeland, Australia. I have had the privilege of following my father, a nomadic telecommunications CEO all over the globe. To date he has lived in 14 countries, I have never permanently resided by law in another country, however I do stay for extended periods, and travel regularly to see him.I have been to over 25 countries and calling almost 5 of them home.

Your supplementary looks good :) Would you mind reading mine over too?

I found the answer where you referenced the Egyptian Deities very interesting. It was an effective comparison, but perhaps, if there is space, you could elaborate on how the you and your family educate one another.

Writing is more than a means to communicate, transporting readers to unobtainable places, creating burgeoning ideology, providing individuals the opportunity to perceive my perspective. I thrive on touching pen to paper, immortalizing my ideas, securing them on page . Writing for my High School publication, New Empire Times, exercised my growing appreciation for creative non-fiction and journalism. I was able to express my opinions, form debates and speak my mind openly. I welcome the ability for freedom of speech, and exercising my rights to advocate for my beliefs. However my passion is so deeply Creative writing, shadowing upcoming independent script writer Robert Mond immersed creative writing into my psyche. I contributed to scripts and editing the initial storyline, I found myself running away with the characters. Captivated by this ability I had discovered, My passion was reinforced when my edit was added to the script, and directed into the film.

Why Brown? (200-word limit)

"Study what he chose, all that he chose, and nothing but what he chose." Francis Wayland.
I've never only loved one subject, connecting the knowledge I gain in various disciplines has formed the foundation of my writing, my subject matter seem in the title polar opposites, only to read on and recognize the quirky connections formed. Brown's culture of nurturing and encouraging individual pursuits resonates my beliefs, allowing expression of my unique character through the masses of courses I can study. Be it, Favored novelists "Fitzgerald, Hemingway and the Lost Generation" or "Getting Emotional..passionate theories" Brown's course list enables a distinctive edge to my learning experience over other Colleges. Deepening my ability to source connections over varied content, and revolutionizing the way I study intellectual passions. I came across Professor Burrow's material "A Familiar Strangeness" during my college search, I was fascinated by the prospect and opinion of photographies aid in writing, realizing that not only peers, but faculty of Brown shared my approach to subject matter. I thoroughly believe that Brown's strong culture of individual curriculum and lifelong-education, in coalition with my academic approach and character is the quintessential choice, strengthening the colleges diversity of free thinking students.
