What, do you believe, is the key to successful writing?
I believe that passion is the key to successful writing. No matter how much training or years of practice you have will allow you to write well on a subject you do not care about. There must be a motive, a drive, a goal to your writing in order for it to be great. It has to be something at the end of the day, even if the professor did not give you an A, you are proud of.
Why, in your opinion, is English such an important subject?
English is an important subject because it is one of the fundamental necessities for language and communication. Reading and writing are two basic needs that every person should have the right to learn. To be able to comprehend the world at a higher level allows us to gain more from life, to express ourselves, and to better understand one another.
What do you believe are the most important elements of a proper education?
A proper education includes analysis, openness, and creativity. Analysis is vital as the first steps toward understanding. It is the willingness to learn and gather deeper meaning. Openness is an important next step toward understanding. It is the ability to accept meaning and learn a vast amount of information. Finally, creativity is the key to education. It is what one does with the knowledge they have gained that allows learning to come full circle.
