Hello everyone, my name is Joseph. I’m from Cleveland, OH. I love playing guitar and skateboarding. One surprising thing about myself is that I was awarded an Emmy certificate for my work on a short documentary I made called Razzle Dazzle with my film class in high school. The documentary is about a program called “Razzle Dazzle” at a local arts center near my high school. Razzle Dazzle is a program that gives people with special needs the opportunity to sing, dance, and perform on stage.
I chose Wooster for a couple reasons. My mother went to Wooster and loved it, and she brought me with her when she went to her reunions. I first saw Wooster when I was 7. Because my mom used to take me with her when she went to her reunions every five years, I became accustomed to the campus and the people. By the time I was ready to start applying for colleges, Wooster already began feeling like a second home. I particularly like the campus and community of Wooster.
I’ve got a couple of big goals this semester. I’d like to improve my fluency in Spanish through my Spanish class. I would like to become a better writer, and I think a couple of my classes will help me with that. Right now, I am not entirely sure what I want to do with my life, so I would like to use college as a time for introspection and exploration to get an idea of what I’d like to do. Also, I’m very interested in getting involved in some extracurriculars here at Wooster. Lastly, I would like to work on getting more fit.
