My Personal Statement

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

One thought on “My Personal Statement”

  1. It’s brilliant to hear how important reading is to you, Brianna, how much pleasure it gives you, not just because I’m an English teacher, but because literature, and reading generally, can do so much to help you develop in other areas of interest. I wonder if your love of acting could be deepened and extended by reading plays and TV scripts…perhaps this could become an area of expertise for you over the next three years…
