I got some amazing news.
Over this past year I had been waitlisted for my #1 school of choice (Emerson College) in April. Over the summer I had gotten declined acceptance. Directly afterward I scrambled to decide if I was going to stay here in Massachusetts at Community College or go to LA to go to Columbia College Hollywood.
I ended up choosing Community College in Boston. I commuted 50 miles a day by car to attend school. For the past 4 months community college has been harder than I thought it would be, but I have good grades at the moment and my finals are next week.
Over the past two weeks I put my deposit down for Bridgewater State University. I was planning to go to this school and major in Secondary Education, but something just happened as of yesterday.
Yesterday I was filming with some of my really good friends when I received an email from Emerson College with an update on my status. (I had reapplied for Spring 2018). I opened it while I was with my friends and I GOT ACCEPTED!!! I got accepted into my #1 school that I had been persistent with... It is acclaimed to be the #1 school for Journalism, #9 Film School, and #4 for Career Services in the United States. The school is really important to film makers in East coast because the other big one is NYU. -- Im so excited to have the opportunity to attend this incredible school.
I worked so hard and I am beyond proud of myself... I put so much effort into this school.
