Greg Borowiak, a 20-year-old from Angola, NY, knows just how hard it is for college students today to figure out exactly what they want to do with life after school.
After attending the University at Buffalo as a Business major for a year-and-a-half, Borowiak was removed from the program; an event, he said, gave him the push to do what he really wanted.
After a difficult summer of indecision about his career path, Borowiak looked back at his childhood aspirations for ideas. With a little hesitation, he confesses that as a kid, Claymation was a favorite hobby of his. After his mother gave him a digital camera, he began making his own clay-model films, which transformed into a strong interest for movies in his teen and adult years.
Once Borowiak reinstated this dream, he decided to pursue it as a career; something he knew he couldn’t do at UB. Borowiak applied to the University at Old Westbury and SUNY Hunter but after missing a deadline and stopping an application, he did not end up attending either school.
Still, Borowiak remains persistent. While doing as much as he can with media at UB, he hopes that Five Towns College on Long Island will be his next stop. While directing does not appear to be his forte, Borowiak hopes to be involved in the editing/writing aspects of media in his future career and would love nothing more than to leave his suburban roots and call the nation’s Big Apple, NYC, his new home.
