    s a really good process to go through because you get to verbalize to say what it is that you want Making it concrete so that it becomes realized Writing for the Fulbright has been very intense but definitely worth it It s a whole process When I first started I didn t really have much of an idea of what my project would be I just knew I had to go to Peru By the time I was done a marvelous project materialized As an artist my ideas are really abstract sometimes I m not sure what I m trying to say I just have this gut feeling Writing for me takes time and effort but putting the application together has really helped me turn a gut feeling into a finished project I ve also been able to understand and articulate what my purpose and ambitions are And I am very grateful to my fellowship advisor Joy whose perfectionism and encouragement helped me to the finish line We made a great team Despite the fact that I have a B A in journalism it took me months of preparation research and constant revisions to articulate a proposal suitable to compete on a national level I took it for granted that I always felt comfortable writing papers for classes or news articles for different publications As a result my first draft was hastily written and poorly demonstrating the ideas I had for my project With the help of my adviser Dr Viveros I realized that if I wanted to be a serious contender I would need to cultivate my ideas into a cohesive multilayered proposal based on a concrete project rather than relying on abstract concepts I treated the process like a fulltime job and although I had two months before the proposal was due I found myself writing and revising up until the very end The biggest challenge for me was formulating the substantive questions my project was proposing to ask answer I felt confident in my initial proposal due to my involvement in the subject matter on both a personal and professional level but with every new revision Dr Viveros continued to encourage me to dig deeper The process was frustrating but it ultimately allowed me to envision my project from a different perspective I realized I needed to move away from the simple who what when where why type of questions and to begin exploring the deeper social relevance my subject matter was reflecting The whole process was painful but extremely rewarding at the same time I not only walked away feeling confident in my final draft I also felt I became a better writer in the process I don t think I would ve been able to pull it off without the help of Dr Viveros and I certainly wouldn t have been able to do the work without a significant amount of preparation time I would encourage candidates to start early contact an adviser and be prepared to write many MANY revisions Dr Viveros warned me that applying for a fellowship is quite an undertaking and the workload would be equivalent to an additional class she was absolutely right Not only that it was the most challenging thing on my schedule With that said working with Dr Viveros will easily be one of the most influential experiences of my graduate education She coached me in what I found to be the most challenging part of the process accessing the appropriate tone for writing about my artistic process The way I was able to make breakthroughs was to write without a preconceived idea of who my reader was that way I was able to tap into my own language and voice I made brand new discoveries about my work life and about my capabilities in writing I have been incorporating a bit of this process in my academic writing and I think it s much richer as a result As a part of my studio practice the free writing I do continues to yield new discoveries I absolutely would recommend anyone to meet with Joy Especially students in the arts those that feel they are unable to write about the artistic process give it a shot take the experience seriously and I think you ll be very happily surprised I arrived at Dr Viveros office unaware of the revelatory journey that was before me I confidently provided Joy with a draft of my doctoral research statement and graduate application essay that I revised previous to working with her I was at ease and with only a month to go before the deadline I was certain that I would obtain her stamp of approval that my doctoral graduate application essays were excellent and ready for submission Instead Joy looked at me squarely and said You have a lot of work to do I was terrified Joy took a great deal of time to show me examples of other amazingly written fellowship essays and explain that I needed to anatomize my experience to convey how my personal academic professional experiences have compelled me to pursue my research goals She encouraged me to reflect more on my personal narrative and synthesize how my past experience have informed and prepared me for my future work as a social work researcher and scholar I was daunted by the task of having to go within myself to pull out themes and create meaning As the daughter of immigrant parents my parents did not model this particularly well they emphasized looking forward and not wasting time dwelling in the past So while uncomfortable I took the time to journal and look at where I have been I began to shed the academic jargon that I clung to which I thought made me sound intelligent as if I belong in academia Through revisions I began to rely less on clichés and began answering Joy s questions How did you get drawn to working with
