Ingrid Rodriguez
Arts Encounters 10
Why Do You Do What You Do?
I am Ingrid.
And I’m a million little things at once.
I’m 19 years old. I’m a sophomore at UCLA. I’m a Political Science major. I’m a native Southern Californian.
And I’m only human.
I’m fickle. I’m stubborn. I’m proud. I make mistakes.
But there are two sides to me.
I’m also ambitious. I’m also loyal. I’m also protective. I’m also determined. I’m also passionate.
But most importantly, I am me.
And I do many things.
I attend music concerts. I go to Disneyland. I work. I shop. I have fun.
But most importantly, I go to school.
I study. I read. I write. I analyze. I explicate. I review. I get good grades.
But most importantly, I think.
Why do I do this? For so many different reasons.
I go because it’s all I’ve ever known. I go because I’m scared to do anything else. I go because I don’t know what else to do. I go because I’m scared to grow up. I go because it gives my life purpose. I go because it makes me happy. I go because I’m good at it. I go because it gives me something to do. I go because I have to. I go because society tells me to. I go because I can’t fail.
Failure is NOT an option.
But most importantly, I go because I don’t want to let them down.
I just want to make them happy. I just want to make them proud.
But most importantly, I just want to let them know that it was all worth it.
I love you, Mom and Dad.
