Descriptive Essay Draft 2: My Ideal Profession:
While there are many professions one can choose from, I perhaps have a desire to pursue an atypical one. If given the opportunity to pursue any field of study, I see myself as videogame designer. I have been interested in this field since I was a child, and this is the ideal turf for me. In fact, I envision myself as a developer of advanced levels of games such as Rock Band," "Wii Fit" and "Madden Football." Thanks to my profession, people will line up to buy all the popular video games that I design. I will hear audiences of people cheer as I pass them by. Making video games requires a lot of imagination and I know that I will be able to bring my talent to life by pursuing this fascinating field.
I had my first taste of what it would be like to be a videogame designer in the second grade. My school teacher, Ms. Hanna, hosted career day for our class. Among the various speakers I encountered, the one who struck out the most was a videogame software developer. His field of study seemed so interesting—he was exactly what I wanted to be. Juxtaposed to him was a team of speakers – lawyers in stuffy dark suits and doctors in long white uncomfortable jackets. However, here amidst them was a designer in a solid grey t-shirt and jeans. He shared how he was making as much, if not more, than his tightly dressed counterparts. I wanted to be him.
As a professional videogame designer, I will have to devote myself to exploring every aspect of a game and to mastering its outcome. Videogame design is a challenging, booming business with many specialized jobs and numerous points of entry. Since I was very young, I have been passionate about this highly competitive field. I possess a variety of skills and innate abilities. The expertise largely involves training in computer graphics, animation and software design. These are areas I am extremely interested in and areas that I definitely want to study. I hope that, as a designer, I will obtain the training at credentialed programs at technical schools I will need to be successful in my career.
To summarize, I know that I will make an excellent videogame designer because I possess a very powerful imagination, which is a prerequisite in order to construct the alternative world of the game in one’s mind before creating it in cyberspace. Indubitably, I feel that, as a designer I can make a great impact in this field and bring design to life.
