My passion is writing & storytelling.
I discovered my passion for writing and storytelling when I watched a lot of TV shows like Gilmore Girls and Full House, which are some of my personal favorites. I also watched a lot of Mexican soap operas which seemed really interesting to me and captivated me until the end of the story. These inspired me to write my own stories as I find it very interesting and I even have a notebook filled with different ideas that I have thought of. I was going through a rough time when I discovered my passion for writing and screenwriting, which to me made the passion for it stronger.
Jonathan is a great candidate for US Performing Arts Screenwriting because he is excited and passionate about writing. He is a bright student who is eager to learn and actively seeks opportunities to challenge himself and improve his skills. He exhibits a professional demeanor that shows a maturity beyond his years. Jonathan would greatly benefit from participating in a professional learning environment with other students who are equally focused and engaged.
First, I'd like to thank you all so much for allowing me to attend the program. I got to learn a lot more about screenwriting as an job and as an industry. During the week I was at Stanford, I met many wonderful people who have become very dear to me and that I still talk to today. It went really great thought. The food at Stanford is pretty good. My teacher, Rick Hawkins., had us analyze different movies to know how a movie overall is structured. Before going, I knew almost nothing about plot lines and side characters but I learned a lot in the week. Once again, I want to thank you all very much for allowing me to attend this program by donating.
I would like to update you on the current state of my fundraising. Thankfully, the rest of the money needed was funded by the Wishbone General Fund. I would like to thank you for donating and allowing me to attend the US Performing Arts Screenwriting program. I chose this program because it will allow me to learn more about writing for television and movies, which is something that I am very interested in pursuing as a career later on in my life. I look forward to learning everything about the process of screenwriting and how it becomes into the content we watch. I also look forward to all the writing that is said to happen because I enjoy writing a lot. Once again, thank you for donating and I will keep you updated on what happens in the coming months.
