Draft Paragraph on ‘goals’.
(using my notes as a guide)
Throughout life I have been involved in drama. As a young girl I led
friends in performing for our parents and neighbors. We used nursery
rhymes for a script, creating costumes, props and a stage in the garage.
We were on stage using all of our talents. I loved it and still do! In 4-H I
learned techniques using fabrics, color, and clothing construction. I even
took a career assessment in high school, scoring highest in arts and
technical! I took a clothing construction class, various art classes and
business classes too. Through high school drama, I began designing
costumes for plays. In the program for Music Man, A Christmas Carol,
Charlottes Web and Into the Woods you will find my name as costume
designer! Running Start at Wenatchee Valley College gave me a chance
to continue toward my goal, learning more through History of Theatre,
textiles and auto-cad design classes. These credits will transfer to
Washington State University, where I plan to earn my degree in Fashion
Design, focusing on theatre. The spotlight so far has been on developing
my skills and applying for various scholarships in order to pay most of
my own expenses. I hope to one day make a living working as a costume
or fashion designer. The spotlight then will be on the characters who
wear my creations!
