Step 1: introduce yourself – What have you learned about yourself? What have you aspired to in the past? Why? Strengths? Interests? Where have you lived & how has it influenced you? What else has influenced you?
I feel I have grown a lot during this past year. Something I have learned about myself is that I’m not afraid to face my fears. One of my ambitions these past few years has been to read more books than I had during the previous year. This is because I absolutely love to read, and when I find a good book, I want to finish it as fast as I can. Before this year, I never really directed my ambitions towards achieving anything career wise. This was because I was to afraid to try and I had let my fear control me. It had prevented me from what I wanted to do most, which was acting and singing. It wasn’t until last year where I had really tried to face my fear by auditioning for a play.
Step 2: What are your aspirations – A conversation, an attitude, a characteristic, a book, an aspect of learning, a moment, a skill, a career, an understanding?
My ambition is to become an actress
My goal now is to read 27 books before the year (not school year) ends.
Step 3: Why? What has led to these aspirations?
I want to become an actress because I watch a lot of bloopers form my favourite tv shows and movies. They all have a lot of fun, mess around and have a couple laughs. I admit acting is stressful, but messing around on set and having a couple laughs seems like the best way to relieve the stress. Something else that has led to this aspiration is that I watch a lot of tv in general. Whatever I watch always gets me hooked. My favourite genres are action comedie. They do a lot of cool fighting techniques as well as stunts and it just makes me wish that one day I could do those things too. It just makes me want to be part of the action.
Step 4: What do you plan to do to achieve these aspirations? Be specific
- Seeming as I watch a lot of tv: I could take notes on how they do certain things and see how I could apply it to my own performance
- Audition for more plays and keep practicing
- Keep playing the Guitar and performing to help get over my stage frights
