How My Current And Future Academic And Extra Curricular Activities Will Help Me To Reach My Life Time Goals

915 words - 4 pages

I have chosen to pursue a career in acting because entertaining people is what I thrive on. Ever since I was little I have loved being the center of attention and making people laugh. My whole life I have wanted to be the person who helps somebody turn their day around. That is why I love being a cheerleader.
I have been cheering long before I chose what career I wanted to pursue but as I was contemplating what to write for my essay I realized, I have been acting my whole life. Every time I step onto a competition mat I am putting on a show to help my team to win. Every time I step onto the football field to cheer on my team I am acting. As a cheerleader, it is my job to get the crowd involved at the games. When my team is winning it is easy to show my emotion because I am truly happy, but when my team is losing, that is where I genuinely have to put on a show. Obviously I am disappointed my team is losing but I can’t show my disappointment to the crowd; the football players and the fans are counting on my team and me to stay positive. Even if my team is losing horrifically I must act like I truly believe that we can come back and when the game. Cheerleading has taught me how to control my emotions, which is the most prominent part of acting.
Before I cheered for my high school team, I cheered competitively. This is where I learned how hard work and determination is truly the key to success. I would have four, three hour practices a week on top of my school work. If I was not at school, I was at the gym, either at a practice or I was just there to work on a new skill by myself. Waking up on competition days was like nothing else because I knew that for two minutes and thirty seconds I was able to put on a show and entertain the crowd along with my team. Competing is all about rejection. If you’re not first then you have lost but that does not mean you should give up, there is another competition right around the corner. Acting is very similar, if you are not chosen for the role you auditioned for, you must move on. There is always a new audition around the corner and there is always room for improvement. The cliché “you lose some and you win some” is true, you are not always guaranteed to win. Knowing this makes me extremely open-minded; I am not as naive to believe the first audition I walk into I...
