At age seventeen, joining the UP System is my greatest achievement. Among the college entrance examinations I had taken, the UPCAT was the toughest. Finally, I’m a certified “Iska”. I believe that UP will bring out the best in me.
Architecture is entirely a new experience for me. In high school, I was more trained in Mathematics and Science. My exposure to the arts is quite limited. Thus, right now I find myself facing a great challenge as a great freshman. I have discovered a “new me.” The artist lurking in me is now gradually coming out. I have already come up with sketches; and just recently I have created a simple sculpture of myself.
Hopefully, by second year college, I can see myself fully adjusted to the program I have chosen and to the university life as a whole. As I third and fourth year in BS Architecture, I want to get the real “feel” of my dream career. I have strong faith in the professors of UP Mindanao. From them I will certainly gain the required training and essential inputs in the field. I would like to see myself ready to graduate by completing all the academic and co-curricular requirements.
I can see a profitable career in architecture. There’s nothing wrong in aiming for a comfortable life as long as it is achieved through positive means.
MY FIRST COLLEGE ESSAY. :)
