My name is Sydney, my mother is widowed and I have a twin sister. My mother works an office job and my sister works as a hostess in a diner. Although we lost someone important to us we still continue to work hard.
OBSTACLES TO MY DREAM
I have always had an interest towards anything art wise so my biggest dream is to be an art teacher. My grandma was an art teacher and has supported me from day one. Her and I think very alike in many ways; and hence, are very similar artistic wise. My grandmother is probably my biggest inspiration.
HOW WILL I ACHIEVE THIS DREAM
I have never been the top in the class; whilst, when it came to art I was. Where I lack, I make up in artistic ability. My grades have been good and bad at times, but my art skills never vary. I look up to people who take pride in their work and the only way I would be able to as well is if I was doing well and I believe I could as an art teacher.
My biggest obstacle or problem is not being able to get into the art school I want to. I have always wanted to go to Pratt and not being able to go would crush me. I will continue to work hard though, and make sure my art is up to par.
I will stop procrastinating and working on other things besides art. I will continue to get good grades but make sure I continue creating. Once I graduate high school I will go to the best art school that accepts me and get my teaching degree.
