Orville H. Platt High School
My passion is art.
In a time of grief, all I ever wanted was to be with my grandfather one last time. I grew up seeing him, he was always around. When I lost him, I felt as if I lost everything. My grandfather had true talent. He would draw and create masterpieces from "boredom." I remember once looking at one of his drawings and thinking to myself, "I wish to draw like that." And I tried, I kept drawing cartoon figures to start off. Then I moved here to United States. I took an art class in my high school and witnessed my drawings go from 2D cartoon chics to actual portraits. That feeling was the best emotion I recall feeling. Seeing my progress made me truly proud, and I know my grandfather would be too since he always supported me.
Wilnellie is a great candidate for the Creative Arts Workshop Adventures in Art program because she is hard-working and passionate. She is always willing to put in the extra work when needed. As a teacher I have had Wilnellie in my classroom for the past two years and have seen her develop into a wonderfully responsible young woman. Wilnellie is always looking for new opportunities and has great aspirations for her future.
I loved the program! Everyone was very nice, including the staff and I made some friends as well! I'm glad I went because now I know what career I want. Thank you for letting me have this experience. I would definitely try this again if I could!
I wanted to thank you all for giving me this opportunity. Because of you I have the chance to attend and achieve my dreams! I'm really looking forward to developing my art skills, and along the way meet new people and make friends! I'm really excited for this, i'm sure that this experience will give me a new perspective on things. Thank you all!
Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those that prepares for it today.
Good luck Wilnellie!
