Letter of advice 範文
Learning English through Drama
As a Form Six Student, you are considering educational opportunities after your HKDSE. One option you have selected is the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, as you want to take up an acting career. However, your parents would like you to pursue an academic subject at another institution.
As the deadline for submitting the application is approaching, write an email to your parents, who are now on an overseas trip, to convince them to support your choice.
How are the two of you enjoying the trip to Japan?
Now is around the blooming season of cherry blossom and I bet the view is captivating and breathtaking. I wish I could be with you enjoying a moment of relaxation and tranquility and be away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.
The deadline for submitting the application for HKAPA is around the corner. Despite the countless conversation as to how I should further my studies we have had before, I still can’t help thinking about pursuing my all-time passion – acting.
I’m sure you know better than anyone that my love for acting has been growing over the years and there is nothing that motivates me quite the way acting does.
From the drama club at school to the teenage acting classes at HKAPA, I have devoted a significant portion of my time on honing my acting skills. If anything, it would be the study of other academic subjects that deprives me of the precious time to enhance my acting skills and transform myself into an all-round actor. Acting has long been an integral and indispensable part of my life that I can’t possibly live without, which is why I would wholeheartedly want to follow my ambition and dream, however difficult the path would be. To be honest, there are few things as satisfying as achieving a sense of accomplishment from dedicating myself entirely to acting, say when I finally managed to interpret not only the outer emotions but also the inner conflicts of a character who faces a dilemma changing his life.
That’s why I have determined to enroll in the HKAPA instead of furthering my studies at one of the universities in Hong Kong.
One of the biggest concerns you two have is the career prospects of an actor in terms of job security, income and opportunities.
From a practical point of view, I fully understand the need to take into consideration the many aspects of my career other than my passion for acting. Planning for my future, I did some research and found out that it might not be as unpromising as you think. As a matter of fact, Hong Kong has transformed from solely being a financial centre to a society that attaches importance to arts and culture. So the government is more determined than ever to allocate more resources into reviving the cultural industry by constructing the West Kowloon Cultural district. Coupled with the fact that more TV licences will be issued in the near future, there is little doubt that high quality actors would be highly sought after. After studying at the HKAPA, I can first become an actor of plays before joining a local television station and becoming a prominent actor of soap operas.
Choosing HKAPA will essentially open up all sorts of possibilities for me to study acting and pursue my lifelong passion.
To live up to your expectation, I would have to study one of those professional subjects like accounting, law and medicine. You may say that these programmes would pave the way for a promising and lucrative future.
However, doing so will mean that I will never be spiritually fulfilled. It’s my belief that choosing a university programme I am not enthusiastic about will sap my motivation to succeed. Even though being an actor could mean financial instability at the early stages of my career, I’m convinced that all the ups and downs I would experience along the way would define and shape who I really am. When I am doing what I really enjoy, it seems like I am more motivated than anyone else in the world and failures will only be intriguing challenges in the beautiful journey of pursuing my dream. I will watch numerous videos to discover my flaws in acting; I will participate in countless training sessions and rehearsal in order to perfect my acting skills; I will learn from my idols so as to become as brilliant as one of them.
This is the power of dreams and serves as the locomotive for constantly improving myself.
To be an actor is my lifelong passion and dream. More than that, it has become the meaning of my life, so I would do everything possible to achieve it.
I hope you all will understand my crave for acting. After all, I need the support from all of you to make the ultimate decision. Stay safe in Japan and I look forward to your reply.
