Dani García Pozo’s love of writing motivates them to craft memorable stories and projects during their time at Grady College. Read more about their creative pursuits below.
Why did you choose your major?
I chose my major because I discovered a passion for screenwriting during my time at university. I’ve always known that I want to write professionally, hence why I chose English, but I wasn’t sure how to apply that talent into a career in the future. With the benefits of the resources and classes provided by the entertainment and media studies major, I have been able to more tangibly pursue that goal.
What are you passionate about?
I’m very passionate about storytelling, and that passion seeps into nearly everything that I do. I’m an avid player of “Dungeons & Dragons”, and I’ve made a variety of stories, characters and campaigns for that game. Besides that, I’m working on a variety of creative projects that range from comedy scripts to fantasy worldbuilding!
What does tenacity mean to you?
To me, tenacity means pursuing your truth and happiness. It is continuing to write that comic book, pen that stage play, helm that “Dungeons & Dragons” campaign — whatever you feel passionate about. When the world tells you that you won’t be able to, tenacity is facing that adversity and continuing to do what makes you truly happy. Tenacity is learned, not inherent; we all find it in our own ways.
What is one piece of advice that you would give to other Grady students?
You have so much more creative talent and imagination than you probably give yourself credit for. Create something — a podcast, a webcomic, a short film — anything. Make it because you want to, not because you were instructed to. You’ll find a sense of fulfillment in that beautiful endeavor that nothing can truly satisfy.
What motivates you?
My friends, my family, and my community. I wish I could say I was doing it all for them, and in a way I am, but I’m pursuing my happiness because they’ve put me in the position to do so. I hope to one day give back to them when I have the resources to do so.
What or who has had the biggest impact on your life during your time at UGA?
My father has had the biggest impact on me during my time at UGA. He has supported me throughout so many major changes, academic struggles, personal triumphs, and creative projects. He is one of the most understanding and compassionate people I have ever met — an immigrant, a father, and a teacher who embodies tenacity. Quick shoutout to Jorge!
What is the best piece of advice you have received?
The best piece of advice that I have received would have to be that you should always take the opportunity to do something. Anything. Doing nothing is simple, but it gives you nothing — do something, and at least you’ll have made an impact.
Where’s your favorite place on campus and why?
My favorite place on campus has to be the Founder’s Garden. When life gets stressful, or I just need a moment to recompose, something about the stillness and grandeur of that little garden helps me to heal.
