As an aspiring filmmaker, I have always had a dream of one day pursuing my passion in the filmmaking capitol of the world, Hollywood! That motivated me throughout high school and got me a scholarship to study Film in the States. Picking out universities was quite frustrating for me as my sponsors would not send me to any film school in the country, but they had a very small, specific list of schools that I can apply to. Fortunately though, CSUN, which was once ranked amongst the top 25 film schools in the nation, was on that list! So here I am in my second semester as a Film student pursuing my goals and dreams. Now as a writer, I used to struggle distinguishing between creative writing and academic writing. The latter requires a higher level of precision and complete clarity, whereas creative writing pretty much follows the rules of the storyteller. Hopefully in this class, which is my last English class ever, I would overcome any weaknesses I may have, so I can finally be ready to move on with my academic career.
