1st Place, Personal Essay – Fist Annual Writing Program Contest.
I can’t say much besides that for the first time in my life, I feel as though I’ve actually accomplished something and it’s an honor to hold this very envelope in my hands. SVA will publish my essay (along with the other winners) and for those who won 1st place, they also get a series of bookmarks with a quote from their essay. Mine says the following:
“I had this sense throughout the entire museum, of mystery, of something looming in suspended animation, as if life had been frozen for that very moment and the universe was about to reveal all of its secrets.”
Needless to say, this has been such a wonderful experience and one hell of a way to end my first year here at School of Visual Arts. I may have had my defeats but I honestly believe that the struggles we go through do have rewards, and that anyone who’s determined and perseveres will get something of value in return, even if it’s not what they’re expecting.
This is what I’ve come to believe and I think it’s enough to get me through the next years to come here at SVA. With that said, God Bless and I’ll see you all when the sun sets east.
