My name is Shawn Behal and I am currently a Sophomore student at Towson University and I am majoring in Communication Studies with a minor in Mass Communication. My goals for this semester are to pass all of my current classes with a stable 3.0 GPA. Moving forward, my main long-term goal is to graduate from Towson University with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Mass communication within the time frame of December, 2019. As for a short-term goal, I plan on getting an internship for the summer season that is geared towards my major in Communication Studies.
My main career aspiration is to get a stable, decent paying office job that is related to my major in Communication Studies and that is rigorous and creatively engaging. As far as my interests and hobbies are concerned, I am very passionate about viewing different kinds of films and TV shows of any varying genre and appeal. Also, my activities consist of running, biking, listening to music, reading novels, playing video games, researching online piracy trends and news stories, and viewing random time consuming YouTube videos on irrelevant memes and internet trends.
When looking at my favorite media, I am very interested in film, TV shows, and music. When looking at the medium of film, I am very interested in contemporary Indian cinema that focuses on low-budget independent films that deviate from the conventional fare that is offered in Bollywood. Besides Indian cinema, I am also interested in the medium of film as a whole and I tend to enjoy experimenting with films from different genres and countries. If I were to list my favorite film directors, they would have to be Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs), Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives, The Neon Demon) , Park Chan Wook of Oldboy fame, Anurag Kashyap (Dev.D, Gangs of Wasseypur), and Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim, Baby Driver). When looking at tv shows, I am primarily fascinated by shows that explore unique themes and subject matters. Also, some of my favorite tv shows would have to be Mr. Robot, Breaking Bad and its prequel series Better Call Saul, Westworld, Preacher, Game of Thrones, Atlanta, Legion, The Deuce, The Flash, Sense8, Silicon Valley, and South Park. When examining the medium of music, I am really interested in conventional Indian movie soundtracks, lofi Hip-Hop, and jazz; in addition, some of my favorite artists would have to be Kanye West, Die Antwoord, Soil and Pimp Sessions, and an independent hip-hop artist known as Jpn.
The volunteer work that I have done was that I volunteered to tutor students at my local Elementary school with their homework assignments. Some of my special achievements would have to be graduating high school and obtaining an Associates Degree in General Studies from Frederick Community College.
