Emerson

When I received the criteria for this essay I knew that writing this would be a personal challenge to myself. My motivation and interest in being a journalist is so vast that I knew that I would have trouble squeezing it all into a mere 500 word essay. In addition, I would have to list my experience in journalism. During my high school years I have accumulated so much experience due to the responsibilities bestowed on me, that it would be hard to describe them all. As I entered my sophomore year of high school, our school district had just completed both the new high schools. This was necessary because of the overcrowding within our district. With the new high schools came a new school paper, and with a new paper came new opportunities. That first year was hard, but because of the gumption by my fellow journalists and I, we were able to have a successful inauguration year of The Voice. We received several awards that year for the quality of our paper, and as high school continued The Voice continued to mature with the staff. We learned to work together as a team and how to help each other with our articles. No single person stood out against the other, and no single article could be accredited to a single writer. We all had our own individual responsibilities, but we all stayed those long nights at the school until midnight or one, in order to ensure that our paper was the best it could be. During this time I was given many responsibilities. I was given the honor of being spirituality editor, copy editor, managing editor, in-depth editor, business editor, and co-news editor. I was privileged to be given these opportunities, and thankful to have such great supporting journalist to help make our paper, in my opinion, one of the best local high school papers. I embraced every new responsibility given to me in order to make myself the best journalist that I could be. My motivations for wanting to be a journalist are so deep rooted that I could not even begin to speculate as to there beginnings. Ever since I was in elementary school I have had a desire to be a journalist. I do not believe it to be a genetic passion since there are no journalists in my family, I think it is just a drive for the truth that sparks my desire.

Free College Admissions Essay - College Admissions: Essay for Stanford As the beast ran rampant through the streets, I couldn't help but wonder if my work had been for naught.

The prospect of beginning from scratch was ponderous, but I instantly welcomed the challenge.

Free College Admissions Essays: The Outreach Program - College Admissions: The Outreach Program The Panuluyan was a real eye-opener for me. It made me become aware of the things, which I have normally taken for granted. It was so surprising to see how much little they have, yet at the same time they cherish each little blessing they receive and they never cease to be grateful for what is given to them. It made me see that it was easier to please those who have less, because they expect less. The trip to Camarin also made me realize how much different we are, yet very much the same....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 641 words

Free College Admissions Essays: MIT - MIT Admissions Essay I may seem to be someone with many unconnected facets and talents once you have read all the other essays on this application. This essay is intended to slap together a few of the pieces of myself that I have displayed here. The human race is immortal ( that was a doozy wasn't it ). There is nothing that forces us to decay into old age and die, this is merely our body destroying itself once our purpose ( reproduction ) is complete. Evolution not only did not bother to select against genes that kill off people past 40, but to some degree selected for such genes: the faster we go through generations, the faster we evolve....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 485 words

Free College Admissions Essays: Psychology - College Essay about Psychology Some say that mankind is complex beyond comprehension. I cannot, of course, speak for every other individual on this earth, but I do not believe that I am a very difficult person to understand. My life is based upon two very simple, sweeping philosophies: pragmatism in actions and idealism in thought. Thus, with these two attitudes, I characterize myself. Pragmatism in actions.

Free College Admissions Essays: The College Experience - College Admissions: The College Experience In High School, college seemed to be the scariest thing that I could think of. Whenever I thought about it my stomach would immediately begin to spin in circles. Although I was ready to go off and be by myself and meet new people I was scared to death at the same time. I didn't know much about the "college experience" and what I did know (or thought I knew) scared me. I pictured hard classes that I wouldn't be able to keep up with, people that wouldn't like me, long hikes to get to my classes, and horrible food....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 1215 words

Free College Admissions Essays: An Experience that Changed Me - College Admissions : Describe an experience that changed you The black pirate hat danced around in the air, weaving and bobbing to some Disneyland music. Attached to it was my head and the rest of me, being dragged along on this wild ride. The only sounds I heard were ones of trumpets soaring higher and higher, trying to hit an absurdly high note. The pirate hat and the warm Florida night had taken control, and my self-consciousness went right out the window.

I have always considered myself a truth seeker, questioning everything until I am content. Once I have discovered what I feel is the truth, I am compelled to share my truth with everyone and everything. I have always felt this way and have thus had an insatiable desire to someday become a journalist. All of my interests involve writing in some way shape or form, and I have never wavered in my desire to become a journalist. The one thing in my life that is constant has been my drive to reach my goal of being a journalist. My reasons for wanting to be accepted to Emerson's school of journalism is simply because I know that it would be a good fit. I have spent countless hours researching which schools I may want to attend, and time and time again Emerson has been the school that best fits my needs. I have conducted interviews with past students of your school and I know what I am getting into and I know that I will be a success at Emerson. My attendance there will both help me grow as a journalist and as a person. I know that my acceptance would be symbiotic for the school and me because I am a very motivated person and have shown that I can accept responsibilities. I set very high standards for myself, especially when it comes to journalism, and I know that when you accept me I will not let either the school or myself down.
