I am not an avid blogger. I have struggled in the past in my feeble attempts to blog, mainly because of my lack of confidence in what I write. But I’m looking forward to this class in hopes that I can become a better online writer. Here is my writing sample, my letter of intent for this program.
The point of this letter is not to write about my past accomplishments. That is the purpose of my resume, and, honestly, I do not wish to bore you by being repetitive. This letter, instead, is to discuss my future, a future I sincerely hope will include your program.
As an undergraduate, I majored in Digital Media at Albright College. Although the program was innovative and interesting, it was still fairly new and constantly changing. As a result, I graduated last May undecided as to what field I wished to pursue and felt that I still lacked necessary design skills. Before I graduated, I had searched extensively through many different graduate schools throughout the country; however, none were the right choice for me and I did not want to make a hasty decision, as I still was unsure what I wanted to study. I decided to wait on graduate school and work full-time, although the job is not relevant to either of my majors.
I greatly enjoy the job I have now, but there are very little opportunities to design. However, with the few I did have, I discovered that my passion lies with online design. Recently, I began looking at graduate schools again, this time much more focused, as I know what I wish to do. Upon finding and researching Quinnipiac’s Interactive Media program, I knew immediately that this is perfect for me. Between the many different offered courses and the flexible classes, I am absolutely certain this is what I was searching for. This curriculum will expand my knowledge from the basic skills I learned as an undergraduate and help me grow creatively as a designer. I am confident that this program will help me find a career in the graphic design field.
I love how I feel when I design, how I get so involved in my work that I lose all track of time. I want to create pieces that cause people to pay attention and think differently. I am very eager to continue learning and creating and I feel that the Interactive Media program is the best opportunity for me. I know that your university will assist me in achieving my goals. I hope this letter has shown you how much I want to be a part of your program.
