I grew up in Manhattan, and though we moved away years ago, part of me has never left the city. I'm in love with the city; it is inspiring, eclectic, colorful, varied, and full of opportunity. As an artist I am constantly looking for new ideas, experiences, sights, smells, sounds, and new ways to be inspired. The constant influx and churning of new ideas, ethnicities, beliefs and thoughts make New York the most inspiring of cities for me to train and work in.Attending New York University would put me in the midst of an environment I love, while providing me with the unbeatable education I need. The myriad of majors and minors offered at NYU in every subject from anthropology to neurological sciences would allow me every opportunity to broaden my views, and bring a whole new aspect to my drawings and paintings. Also, the numerous internship and job opportunities New York has to offer would give me first-hand experience in the field, as well a competitive edge over graduates from other schools. I am sure that many colleges have the facilities to give me a good education, but only New York University has the ability to transform me from a student to an experienced career woman and give me the skill set I will need to get to and stay on top of everyone in my field. New York University would be the perfect place for me to learn and grow, and I would be honored to get the opportunity to pursue my education here.
