East Rock Films is an educational organization that seeks to inform and inspire viewers by bringing to life famous writers, artists, and their works. We believe learning about the past can enlighten us all. Please describe someone from the past who especially inspires you – this person could be a writer, artist, scientist, activist, journalist, political leader, entrepreneur, or inventor, to name a few examples, and could be from any country. Your subject could have lived in the distant or recent past but is no longer living.
In your essay, please discuss: Why you chose this individual; what about your subject most impresses you or captures your imagination; what his or her lasting accomplishments are; and what lessons you are able to draw from this person’s life. Also, please tell us briefly about your educational plans.
Disclose what major you are considering to study in college and why. If currently in college, why did you choose your major over others? If in graduate school, why did you choose your area of study over others?
