Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.

My goals and ambitions have constantly changed throughout my life, never being sure of one thing I wanted to do. It was not that I did not want to do anything, it was that I wanted to do so many things it would be impossible for me to actually manage it all. So, I had to make a decision on what I wanted to dedicate my life too. I knew one thing for certain, I did not want to have to live for the weekends and dread the never ending Mondays. I wanted to love what I wanted to do and live everyday bringing something new to what I provide with my work.
I know I want to attend college with a Major in Business Administration. Not because it is safe, but to have an understanding of the work I could fall into. Business would help me pursue the things I really want to pursue and give me a backup plan if things fail. I am confident in what I want to do with my life and would rather take the risk of living a happy life I want to live, rather than settling and dreading my day-to-day commute. My ambitions are the things I could accomplish and the things I strive to work towards. My goals are something I am pursuing, something I work for and WILL accomplish.
Ambitions, I am a very creative person, whatever I do with my life, if it is something I want to do or not, it has to use my creativity. If creativity is not used and exercised it will dwindle and not return. One thing that has captured my eye for a very long time is film. I have been influenced and intrigued by films for as long as I can remember. For me, if I can make a film that encompasses every single thing I want it too and it checks off every single one of my creative boxes, while still having the audience feel what i am getting across and they can appreciate the cinematography at the same time, then there is no greater achievement that i could possibly think of obtaining. A goal for me is to finish the book I am writing and come out with a film about it, EXACTLY how I see it by the age of 25.
Goals. I will attend college and graduate with a bachelors in Business. I will have completed an apprenticeship as a tattoo artist and will own my tattoo shop further down the road. I will have come out with my book with a publisher and sell it to the masses. My goal is not to get rich nor is it to boast my talents, my goal is to spread my creativity and get people to see through an artistic eye that they have not seen through before. To get people to sit back and appreciate something, that is my goal.
This scholarship would not only help me financially, but also show me that other people believe in what I am trying to do as well.
