Writing is as much a part of the human mind, as it is the heart and other vital parts. I cannot think of anything more rewarding in life than to write. This is why I would like to apply to the Journalism School at University of Florida. I do believe that having a true talent for words, as well as loving to share that talents with others is where it genuinely does start. Being able to continue my education in this field is very rewarding to me for a number of reasons. It is not only what I like to do best. It is all that I would like to do for the rest of my life. I cannot imagine a day without the written word being a part of it. Sure, we have mouths with which to speak, but the written word is something that is unique unto itself for itself. There is nothing that can get a message across faster than writing it down for others to read. Journalism allows a writer to share the written word every day in a variety of numerous ways. These numerous ways can extend from newspapers to magazines to beyond. Therefore, this only extends the true power behind the written word to the world, all the more.
If a person loves to write best from all the rest. They should be permitted to carry on that love of words into an educational world that will only make the written word grow up in its own way. This way these same very written words can go out into the world and be as professional as they want to be in essence. Education is the key to bringing the written word out, and to molding it properly, so that it becomes greater than the sum of its many parts. The written word is far more than subjective, it can also be lots of other things, and they way that we do view them is the way we will see them for always.
Now that I have completed two years of study at the University of New Orleans, in New Orleans, Louisiana. I am now ready to move up to the next step, which is to apply at your fine college for my total indoctrination into everything that is of journalism immersion. I want to take my written word to the greatest heights that is possible, and this is so, I can become all that I can be and use my own written words to make my own individual effect on the world by incorporating my own special written words. The power of the written word is not just about talent. It is also about anything, as well as everything, which does denote the lover of the word in general. This is the lover, who I know I can be, once I have had the right education to back it up from start to finish. Please do allow me the honor to become a student at your most illustrious school of learning, and let me and my written word, do learn from you as you will learn from the both of us equally in all the ways that matter most.
