Week 1 Project: My Full Sail Story

Updated: Feb 15, 2021

Before I started my creative writing journey at Full Sail, I was working as a software QA analyst in the aviation industry. I even served as a helicopter mechanic in the United States Army. I had always believed my singular focus in life would always be squarely rooted around all things aviation. While content with my career, I admit I reached a point in my personal and professional life where I felt there was more for me to explore.

But then I began to notice that I had a natural yet unrefined knack for the written word. Putting words to paper or on a screen came with ease and made my perceived burdens lessen. Over time, my skill began to improve, but I always had a nagging feeling that I was an imposter. It frustrated me and as silly as it sounded, I would look at my writing like some jigsaw puzzle I had to solve.

So I found myself wandering aimlessly from YouTube video to YouTube video and article to article trying to teach myself as much as I could. While helpful, those attempts often left me more confused as a lot of the lessons were subjective and vague. It was as though no two people could agree on the right way to approach creative writing.

I finally got tired of trying to sift through the unaffiliated clusters of information available online. That's when I came across Full Sail. At first I was extremely reluctant and skeptical, spending weeks researching the school and it's graduates reviews. I finally reached a decision, and pulled the trigger enrolling in creative writing.

Ever since I decided to pursue my passion, I remained happy with the understanding that I may not end up a rich man, but I would at least have the tools and knowledge needed to follow my heart. Although I became jobless in 2020 due to COVID 19's affect on the aviation industry, I found solace in knowing I would come out on the other end, stronger and wiser from the lessons and personal discoveries I found while attending Full Sail University. #MyFullSailJourney #WixBlog #GraduationSoon
