I have always heard sayings like "Why study art? Why not Engineering, Science or Commerce?", "Art won't get you anywhere," "Art is useless," "You won't get a proper job" etc. I have also heard of situations of the school board planning to cut arts in schools, thinking that students won't do well in their education. Well you know what, you all are wrong! Arts makes a huge impact in our lives! Here are the reasons why art is Important.

1. Arts improves your creativity skills.

Whether it is cooking, painting or music, we do art as if its our own.

2. Arts gives you joy.

I smile whenever I sing my favorite song. Any kind of art can give you so much happiness.

3. Arts relieves stress.

Don't you go to another world when you just sing or listen to a favourite tune?

4. Arts gives you the opportunity to showcase your talent.

Even words doesn't give that much opportunity like art does. By showing our talent, we show that there is something special about us.

5. Arts gives you confidence.

When I sing or perform, I feel so good about myself. I feel there are no worries, hence I perform confidently.

6. Arts helps you do well academically.

Trust me, just a few hours of art will help you relieve stress and give you happiness. With that your mind will be clear, and that would help you focus on your studies, and that would help you get good grades. If you don't do art for few hours, your mind would be stressed and you wouldn't be able to focus and do well.

7. Arts helps you to communicate with other people.

I connect with people through music. I have met most of my friends because of music.

8. Arts helps you learn visually

Thanks to art, I have become a visual learner. Learning Visually helped me a lot in studies.

9. Arts helps you to express your emotions

I use singing to showcase my emotions, whether I am happy, sad or angry. And above all...

10. Art is a different language

Art says things that even words cannot say. You don't need a language to understand Art. Just a small painting, or a food item, or improvising a tune or a step, can express a lot of things without words.


Arts have helped me a lot! As you may be aware, I have special needs! Due to that, I could neither communicate well, nor do well academically. If there was something I could do well, it was music. Music has changed my life. Now I want to use music as a way of connecting with people. If it helped me, it could help a lot of other people who went through difficulties.

Arts is not a waste of time. It is not useless. Arts are very essential to our lives. Yes, I may not get a wonderful job, but as long as it gives me happiness, and gives the best out of me, and at least getting some payment, what's the problem?

So my request is to please take the arts seriously. Don't treat the arts as useless thing. Don't think that it destroys education, because it doesn't!

To the education board, please don't ever think of cutting the arts. If you care about your student's education, then please consider the arts in your school. The arts bring out the best in everyone. Hope you understand.

And for all the parents, relatives, neighbors etc. Try to consider your son/daughter/acquaintance's choice. If that's what makes them happy please support them. Don't be so money-minded, and don't worry about the society says. Hope you guys understand too, how essential art is.

With art, we could bring in a lot change! It could help millions of people! Hope one day, the arts could be considered seriously by most of the people!

Internships Can Really Teach You More Than Just Career Choices

Internships can do more than you think.

67

As long as I can remember I have been told by professors to get an internship. No company would hire me without an internship. Everything came full circle though because if you wanted an internship you needed experience but you couldn't get experience if a company wouldn't give you a chance. This summed up the internship search pretty well for me when I started looking for experience at 19. No matter the jobs I did or the groups I was apart of I always learned something that could be applied to internships and jobs. But it took my first true internship to teach me the important lessons.

Here are five things that internships can teach you:

1. What you want to do as a career

When I chose my internship I didn't choose it based on what I wanted to do after college but as a way of making me stick out to future employers. That is what I consider a huge mistake. When you choose an internship you need to choose something that you can wake up every morning and while you might not have an idea of what you want to do look at it the way you would look at the classes you take.

2. Who you work best with

I act one way around certain people and another around others. When I show up at work I am as quiet as possible and hope nobody calls on me or asks me questions. This has helped me realize who I work best with. Whenever I go out to market or do sales calls I observe and speak some while the person I work with does some of the talking. When working you realize who you can fit with and in a case of marketing or sales sometimes it is good to have someone with different qualities than you.

3. Sometimes it is better to do an internship in an area you know

We all will eventually start our career and move somewhere new to us. Before we move work in a place you know. I chose to stay in Tuscaloosa and work and I got to see parts of Tuscaloosa I haven't seen before. You learn more about your city from when you're one of the few college students there rather than when you're in town for school.

4. It is ok to get a part-time job

College students need money. The first month of summer I didn't have too much money to my name and saw myself trying to spend as little money I had as possible. I decided to get involved in any way to make extra money to support myself until I got paid. While it does stress me out sometimes it is ok to get a second job. When you provide for yourself you need to know what to do to be successful.

5. Some internships can lead to your dream career

While working I took on the role of being a sports journalist for my favorite football team. While I was doing double duty I also got to accomplish something I was passionate about and prepare me for the future. Sometimes the careers we want can be found by doing the extra work.
