Following my previous entry in September, it’s somewhat shocking for me to write that I have been even busier since then. While I, unfortunately, had to drop Audible due to scheduling issues, I am still currently working on the HBO project, I have a part-time job at the Prudential Arena in downtown Newark, am currently in the National Honor Society, run an ed-tech nonprofit, and have even recently begun modeling for an agency in New York. With all of these activities, I can truthfully say that I never have a dull day; I’m always on the go (which helps me remain steadfast and grounded in my aspirations).
Academically speaking, I would say I enjoy AP Literature and AP Environmental Science the most. For AP Environmental Science, I love how it’s an interdisciplinary type of study (like how it embraces topics from geology, biology, environmental studies, environmental science, chemistry, and geography) and how it enables me to recognize my environmental impact on the world (which is also why I recently became vegan). For AP Literature, I love being able to learn effective ways that help me find similarities and differences among numerous works of literature (for instance, I’ve had to compare The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison, and King Lear by William Shakespeare and the idea that each novel is intricately woven with words that just carry my imagination away, it’s great!
Speaking of the future, I have been looking at NYU’s majors (specifically majors within Stern School of Business such as Business and Political Economy) and Oberlin College in Ohio (possibly to double major in Political Science and Economics).
Congratulations on becoming a vegan and your burgeoning entertainment career. Great to hear that you’re challenging yourself with AP classes such as classic literature and environmental science. I like that holistic approach to a course encompassing all those interesting topics. Back when I was in college, I took classes on geography of South America and Astronomy neat stuff went to several observatories. I noticed that your college choices are only two schools within your geography. Go outside your comfort zone how about the Southeast or west? Expand your college search to include at least your top five your second five maybe even have another 10 and put them all in an Excel spreadsheet or Google sheet then share your results. In the spreadsheet have a category for scholarships, internships, and employment outcomes.
