I entered the Frame My Future contest last month. Unfortunately I did not become a finalist, but I’ve realized my flaws in the image and I hope to improve and re-enter next year!
Extended statement:
The world and art share a symbiotic relationship. Art continues to exert influence upon people. The most prevalent way this is shown is through mass media, film, and animation. Children, especially are subject to powerful influence from television animation.
The art that children see is framed within the screen of the media they consume, whether that be animation, video games, or interactive technology. My goal as an aspiring animator is to direct stories that represent what I was deprived of as a child, a character on the screen that children like me, female minorities can relate with and become inspired by.
This way through increasing diversity and humanity in these characters I hope to create role models for generations of underrepresented children in mass media, to teach them that they have the potential to do so much more than what they have been told. This is how I will frame my future, within the frames of animation and within the frames of television, to inspire the generation with the most potential to do great things.

Hi Tori! So like, I'm a sophomore in high school, and I started taking art seriously pretty late compared to a lot of people (I only started taking formal art classes last year) and I feel like I'm really behind, like my art isn't as good as yours was 2 years ago. And I really want to get into Calarts and go into animation, but I'm worried it's too late now and impossible to catch up no matter what I do. Any advice?

Your situation mirrors mine to the dot actually. Here’s a thread from 2 years ago that I made, it’s almost exactly like your ask actually! Plenty of good advice there.

Trust me, you’ve got plenty of time. I actually didn’t consider art school until I was a sophomore too, and I prepared for a year and half for RISD actually for illustration, and actually didn’t consider Calarts (or frankly, a career in animation) until September. 

Your art skill right now has little to do with what you can do. To be honest I was definitely not prepared for art school last year with my skill level, but I put a ton of hours into just working, just sitting down and grinding stuff out, and I improved. And so will you if you put in the time and dedication.

Also remember that it’s okay to wait longer. There’s plenty of older art students, especially at rigorous places like Calarts or Art Center. There’s no stigma against starting your career later. 

Good luck man! You’ve definitely got the potential to get it together

Getting there!
