A Discursive Essay

Topic: Advantages and disadvantages of entering talent contests while still at school.

Nowadays, many children wish they entered a TV talent show. At first glance, it looks like a fascinating life. However, not everything is easy in life for those, who give it a successful shot.

There are many advantages of entering a talent show. First of all, more experience and fame are gained. Furthermore, there will may be new suggestions from the entertainment industry. More specifically, once children, who are obsessed with becoming famous, succeed in those kind of competitions, their fame will definitely take off.

On the other hand, though, there are many disadvantages. Firstly, school children's excitement about the show, leads them to neglect their homework. Moreover, nobody can actually understand young pupils' anxiety about their performance on stage. So, the fear of failure is directly related to the public humiliation. In addition, classmates might take advantage of the instant fame, so jealousy and competitiveness may be unearthed.

On balance, as far as I am concerned, the advantages are outweighed by the disadvantages. The exposure in the public eye, especially for tender aged individuals, only brings misery.
