Hi, My name is Emmanuel Allan. I am from Haiti,i have been in United States for the last 4 years. I speak Creole, French, English. My passion are soccer, filmmaking, screenwriting, graphic design, photograph. My biggest goal is to be a successful storyteller as a filmmaker, photographer, graphic designer. In 5 years I see myself traveling the world and visiting the best soccer stadium in the world and taking picture and making video of the beauty of earth. Right now my goal is to do my best in college, keep my grades high and learn as much as i can. One of my other goal is to go to the 2034 soccer world cup as a referee, i know it’ s a really long goal, but that’s one of the things that will make me very proud .

My avatar is Steven Splieberg. One of the best filmmaker of all time. he has produced movies like the transformer, jurassic park film series,and all lot more film. I put him as my avatar because he is one of the people i admire. I like the way he works. he was listed as the most influential people in America.

People who don’t know who steven splieberg is might think i put this old man picture of my avatar without meaning behind it, or those who know who he is, might think i don’t know who he is or i am just trying to be fancy. But he is just one of my idol, and watching his works get me to learn filmmaking.


my college experience

Being a new college student can be very hard, but i did not fine my fine week that difficult. i was excited to start college and expected it to be something completely different than how it actually is.

I taught that the classes were going to be harder but i have found them to be really easy. like my math class, i taught i was going to learn some big math formula but all the professor did was fractions and percentages, I have found other class like my foundation drawing class very interesting, i didn’t know how to draw so i am looking forward to learn more from that class.

I also taught the students were going to be more like high school student, but i am happy that everybody has their own life and they don’t feel like they have to be in everybody’s business. how like how civilize all the students are. i like the fact that there is a lot of students, there is student at any time of the day, even in the really late classes. All the students are actually here to work and learn, nobody is here to make fun of the student or professor.

one of my few problems are the elevator, they are either broken or the are too full, sometimes i just take the stairs because it took too long and the line was way too long. Same problem with the I.D card, i had to stand for close to 2 hours to get it, it’s the same with the financial aid, everything is really long and takes time.

so far my college experience has been really good, and very different from what i taught it was going to be. i am looking forward to the rest of the semester and the next 3 years.
