“I hope to share this wild ingenuity with the world”

Describe the world you come from; for example, your family, clubs, school, community, city, or town. How has that world shaped your dreams and aspirations?(*) (200-250 words)

I remember when my elementary school playground used to be the unconquered lands waiting to be explored by a ragtag gang of eight-year olds. Under the guise of bandits, we started recess by tramping across desert dunes in a heated game of tag. When the sand became too much of an obstacle to plow through, we took to digging into the earth as pirates, eager to find the precious hidden booty of Dr. Phillips island. We always hooted with excitement as soon as the ivory sand gave way to wet, black dirt because we thought it meant we were approaching the plentiful land of China, a target destination for all avid adventurers.

When I entered middle school, I began my hobby of writing. The transition brought a brand new academic world that no longer allowed me the time to discover uncharted lands within my home, so I had to find another outlet for my tireless imagination to roam free. Through words, I could still express the childish dreams of my youth. After many years of pursuing this vibrant passion, I hope to share this wild ingenuity with the world. I hope to inspire discussion of important issues while keeping true to my original intentions of being a visionary creator.
