Beaufort County Early College High School - Eric Daniel Martinez
Hello there. My name is Eric Daniel Martinez. I am 19 and live in Washington, NC. My favorite hobbies are acting, singing, doing stand-up comedy, and playing video games. I plan on going to ECU when I graduate and getting a BFA in Theatre with a concentration in Professional Acting. When I think about my life up to this point, the word that comes to mind is “blessed”. I have a loving family that have supported me throughout all my endeavors, great friends that I share some of my best memories with, and passionate teachers who truly cared about my education. That is not to say that my life has always been sunshine and roses. There were times where I felt intensely angry, frustrated, and vulnerable. Where it seemed like all my hard work had gone to waste and I felt like a complete fool. But I needed to go through this struggle, to know what defeat was, so that I could come out a stronger, more independant person. A song that perfectly encapsulates this feeling is the song “My Way” by Frank Sinatra. In it, he states that while life has kicked him down more times then he can remember, he still has no regrets at the end of the day since he lived his life on his own terms. He was no sheep blindly following the crowd. He made his own path and choose his own destiny. And that’s what I’ll do too. I’ll live my life my way.

I will attend ECU and enroll in their theatre arts program.
The most challenging task would be balancing work and school and doing both successfully.
Always get your work done early so that you have plenty of time to revise it. Don’t be afraid to ask teachers for help as well.
The highlight of my senior year would have to be getting accepted into ECU.
I hope to see myself on Broadway or Chicago, performing with the big stars and making a name for myself.
The people who have influenced me the most have been my parents. They taught me that hard work is key to success and the struggles life gives you will only make you stronger.
I don’t know when to quit. Whether it’s studying, rehearsing, or trying to make a friend I can’t stop until I accomplish whatever goal I have laid out for myself.
“Let your loved ones know that you cherish and appreciate them, because you’ll never know when they’ll be gone”- Unknown
I value honesty, loyalty, hard work, integrity, and my loved ones.
Anywhere that is simple and comfortable. I just want to live in a place that has a sense of safety and peace.
I am a sucker for a good romance novel/movie.
My favorite year of high school would probably be my senior year since I made really good friends and accomplished a lot of personal goals.
