I don’t think that I have to say anything to really say to explain (part of the reason as to) why I’m accepting this application, since it’s rather obvious as to why I am and everything. Though it’s less for the obvious reasons and more for the amazing writing, anyways, of course.

Background (try to make this as detailed as possible): Harmony has been in the acting business since before she was even born and yes, she does mean that literally. Her fetus ultrasound was featured on a prime episode of Murder, She Wrote and her mother even has said ultrasound picture framed on the living room wall at her home. In her youngest part of life she was also the Gerber company’s favorite model and she likes to think it’s because her charm and acting potential showed from the time she was a baby. And yes, pictures of that Gerber run are also hung up on the walls at her home (and on her side of the dorm room at Ashmore). Needless to say, Harmony was born to be a star from the time she was born, even from the time she was conceived she’d like to argue, and a star she would be.
Her mother pushed for the best acting lessons and vocal lessons while she grew up, partially because her mother definitely lived vivaciously through her daughter’s success and pushed for Harmony to strive and to achieve more. Of course, surrounded by constant praise and attention and promises of bigger things to come, it wasn’t very long into her lessons that Harmony was teaching herself and pointing out mistakes that some of the vocal and stage instructors happened to make along the way. She’s not vicious though, not at all, unless you get onto her bad side. She’s actually quite sweet and can be either your best friend or your worst enemy, so choose wisely. If you’re on her good side, she’ll drown you in praise and compliments and friendly conversation. However, if you’re on her bad side don’t be surprised to get a little bit of passive aggression in the form of critique and “pointers” in the right direction.
Needless to say, she attended the best all girls private school for elementary and middle school where she strengthened her vocal talents even further, and she heard about Ashmore Academy in her final year of middle school. She applied right away, knowing that such a place of high prestige would be lucky to have her was a place that she absolutely needed to be. She’s been at Ashmore Academy since the very start and now she’s in her third year, looking forward to senior year and all of the opportunities that are sure to come along with it. She has a few close friends and she’s more than willing to make more, especially considering this school is full of such true talent like herself, but some people have definitely learned to cross her the wrong way already.
Writing Sample (at least three paragraphs): The mixer was bustling with life and aspiring NYADA applicants as soon as it hit 6pm. It was no surprise, it always happened. There were so many unrealistic people who actually though they had the credentials to get into NYADA and then the occasional few that would actually probably make the cut.. honestly, the brunette almost felt bad for all of the poor helpless ‘talents’ that walked through those doors. She made sure to get there at 5pm every day, as the leading student of the mixer she always made sure to be there early to welcome everyone. And to sweet talk the admissions officers, of course. So as soon as the door opened, naturally Harmony was there to greet everybody as always, a smile plastered on her face.
“Welcome! Oh, what are your credentials? That’s so nice to hear, I have rather excellent credits myself.. and if you’re here to see an incredible show of talent, you’ve come to the right place. I’ll be available for questions and comments afterwards!” Similar greetings were given to most people that walked through the doors until she walked off to prepare for the night’s performance with her group. It was going to be an edgy song, a rock type. We’re Not Gonna Take It by The Twisted Sisters. It was just the edge she needed to show the NYADA officers that would be in the very far back of the room that her acceptance letter was the very first one they should in their right minds send out. Every week she had been doing a different genre of song, and more rock and edgy was the last on her list to check off before she cycled through it again. This was going to be the icing on the cake, the final piece to everything she had worked for since she had been a baby. This was it, and Harmony Pearce knew that she deserved it more than any other single person that came to the mixers.
She made a quick stop first to the front check in booths. “Did anyone from Lima register? McKinley High to be specific?” Curiosity seeped into every fiber of her being though Harmony couldn’t say that she was incredibly disappointed or surprised when she received a negative for an answer. “Oh, I guess they weren’t ready to be mature about handling someone more talented than them. It’s so sad, I was only trying to give them advice on how to become a stronger team.. Hopefully they come around, I’d like to meet them.” Harmony paused, smiling brightly and nodding as she left with a thanks to the NYADA officer.
Harmony walked out on stage first, before their performance began. The lights had dimmed except for a single spotlight on the stage that Harmony walked out onto. She was dressed differently from the last mixer, to fit with the nature of the song. A black dress hugged her form, though she had tights on underneath it so it wouldn’t look so flashy, a sweater over it, and a dark gray beanie to match it. “Hello everybody and I, Harmony Pearce, would like to formally welcome you all to the third NYADA mixer of senior year!” She smiled brightly, waiting until she had a rise from the audience. “My group and I have a very special performance planned that I know you’re all going to love.” Just as she backed up she caught eye contact with Tina, seeing the girl smile brightly and wave. Grabbing the microphone again, she smiled and waved back, nodding her head in Tina’s general direction. “And I’d also like to personally welcome a newcomer of our’s, Tina.” She pointed her out, walking behind the curtains and waiting.
(there’s a few paragraphs after this that are just her performance that I chopped off.. and also this writing is shit quality but I think it shows how I play her? Idk just let me know if you like it please.)
