During my childhood I wanted to be a doctor; my teens, a veterinarian. Now that I’m soon to finish high school, I’ve decided I want to be an animator. Animation has been around since the beginning of 1900s, there are a variety of animation styles which make it more interesting. Since I want to pursue a career in animation, I will start with a graphic design degree. It will help me start a foundation with drawing and using the software used by animators. Drawing is a necessity for animation. Though I’m bad at it, I finally have the motivation to practice. I love animation, and have a burning passion to start learning how to animate.
Why animation? Since 1908 animated films have been around. Around the 1910s short animated films started, and since has been catering to children around the world.
