Writing a personal statement (as an international student)

My ever-changing career path, Pt. II

  It’s been a really windy road to figuring out what I want to do with the rest of my life.   I realised that I hadn’t been honest with myself about my passions, because something had stopped me every time from admitting my one, true passion for the media and entertainment industry.
