Progressions unit – personal statement

From a young age i have always had a passion and fascination for all the different aspects of media and have enjoyed fully exploring and learning many new skills throughout my three years studying media at Exeter College.
As a home Educated student up until college level i had the freedom to explore and be creative with subjects i am most interested in, for me media really stood out and i involved myself in many projects to learn new skills with arts and photography courses throughout my teenage years.
When coming to college i was set on media and have thoroughly enjoyed the courses i have studied and had no doubt in carrying on my media journey into university level studies.
My main passion is for post production work as i mainly focus on producing music videos with mostly working on the editing of my productions because my goal is to finish university while doing internship work for small production companies, working on my skills and using my qualifications to gain a high level media job then become a freelance artist in the later years of my career and look into creating my own media production company to help young and talented people promote their work and gain skills and experience through working and creating projects in a creative and professional environment.
I have gained many skills and achievements over the years as a home educated student and in my college education such as becoming student representative of my class, being a member of the girl guide association for many years gaining leadership skills and working within a team and has encouraged me to be organised and to plan my future to ensure the courses of my choice suit my future plans so i can use them as a platform to further my career and education within the media industry.
My course choices all focus on media and in particular post production, i have individually looked into the courses and their main concept to fully understand them and how they would fit me personally and understand the requirements and curriculum.
I personally think i am suited very well for these courses as i work well within team activities but can independently study and produce my own projects to the best of my ability while trying new ideas and working hard to achieve i can learn from and be proud of.
I have many personal hobbies including personal media projects, working with other professional media students on their projects, i also have a strong passion for music; I play piano, guitar and sing while occasionally working on original pieces of music.
I have a creative social life, meeting creative people and always being in an inspiring environment for future projects and being fully supported by friends and family to pursue my future media career, always having help for projects and any work experience oppertunities.
From the age of 16 i have been in part time work alongside my college education such as waitressing at a local cafe, babysitting; which provides responsibility and organisational skills, working in retail as a small store assistant giving me the opportunity to meet new and interesting people and gain alot of people skills and build my cv and i currently work at Starbucks coffee shop as a Barista and have gained so many new skills and has helped me progress my skills in catering and has inspired me to make more projects with the interesting people i meet and work with.
To elaborate more on my future plans i fully intend on focusing as much of my studies on post-production and camera work and to gain a place as an apprentice or an intern while studying at university to gain more experience in the industry and to further my education and hopefully gain a full time position after i have finished my education and to move up the media industry to inspire people with my work and to move into free lance media and to finally open a media company to help and inspire other young media students to gain experience in the industry and to give them a platform to build their own media career and to have a creative team to work with on new and innovative projects for the future.​
