The ability to create is what separates humans from other animals. For me, writing is a necessity, the only way to adequately convey all the stories I want to tell. I believe that some people are born to be artists. Whether they choose film, writing, dance, or painting, artists are bound together by their intrinsic need to convey meaning through a chosen medium. English is what gives my life purpose and direction. When I write I feel as if I am part of something larger, a legacy of people creating new things that will continue long after they die. My thoughts are immortalized through the words I put on a page.
