- to connect with other self-directed learners in my area
- I'm trying to get more experiance in theater/film costuming and I'm writing a historical christian fiction novel.
My name is Alyssa and I've been homeschooled my entire life. I'm in my senior year of highschool and have been called willful, stubborn, an independent thinker, a bit rash, likely to ask questions and a hardworker. From what I've named above you can tell that I'm not really cut out to be a college student. Anytime I step into a school I want to run for the door. I don't like to be caged in physically or mentally.
One of my goals is to publish a novel which I've been working on for four years now, but most of that time has not been spent on developing the story, but rather developing my talent of writing and word use. Although, I have not finished this novel, I have many ideas for others and some which I have already written a few chapters for.
Another goal of mine is to become a historian or a costumer for historical films and/or tv shows, perhaps a little theater as well.
I'm hoping ZTC will give me challenges that will help further my want for learning and help me to make my goals reality or on the way to being so.
