  • College Admissions Essay: I Am Proud Of Myself

    watching us, so they could choose who is the best candidate for joining the declamation contest. My teachers chose me to join the declamation contest, representing our school. I was so overwhelmed because this was a new experience for me and I’m scared of performing in front of many people. Whereas, I still joined so I memorized my declamation piece and worked hard. They trained me how to act, how to bow, how to walk, and how to speak with the right pronunciations of certain English words. In that case, I started to feel ecstatic and I am very excited to join the contest. Three days before the event, they brought me to a University where I met a professor who is very good at teaching declamation. She gave me tips and advice how to release the nervousness that I am feeling before I perform. However, it was raining so hard that night, no one could pick me up so I just commuted and got soaked by the rain. My school uniform, socks, and my hair were all drenched with water that night. For that reason, I got sick after that night; I had a cold, a cough, a fever and sore throat. It was so awful because I needed to have my normal voice in order to perform my best. Then the day came, I was falling in line for the registration of the contestants. When suddenly someone came up to me; my classmate from my former school.

  • L Orfeo Susan Mcclary Analysis

    Euridice’s section only has a range of an octave, and her greatest interval is a perfect fifth. The perfect fifth interval only occurs twice in her section of the piece. Orfeo has many leaps by comparison. The conservative melody in Euridice’s part illustrates how much more restricted she is in how she can express herself to remain charming and modest. Orfeo’s melodic freedom and provocative leaps depict how he is more allowed to be charismatic to whoever he pleases. The significance of m. 13 in…

Instead of thriving like a flower in…
