I think I am meant to write.

I am so silly in trying to do anything else. My mother always talks about a famous Arabic actor who always wanted to act, but had to appease his family by going to law school (it may have been medical school). After receiving his degree he later went into acting and was very successful. He and his family were able to have their cake and eat it too, so to speak. My situation is similar in that I am equally passionate about art as I am about a future of serving to my native country South Sudan. The the later would elate my family, however that is not the only reason I am studying international relations/pre-law. I am doing it because God has set fire this passion in my heart, to ignore it would be treason to myself. So like that actor, I will do first what is necessary, and then pursue my “hobbies” or “talents” as secondary.
