Pursuing an MPA at Appalachian State University What do working in a jail, knee surgery, and obtaining a local government job in Davidson County have in common? For me, each has played a role in the journey of my career. My journey has led me to a juncture, where in order to reach my potential, I plan to pursue an advanced degree. After outlining my career to date, I will explain my rationale behind the pursuit of an MPA degree, and discuss why Appalachian State’s program, specifically, appeals to me.
The time is now to become a Special Education Teacher. I believe the best fit for my academic and vocational goals is the UWM Exceptional Education Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program. I have been a teacher of students with special needs for the last couple of years in alternative settings.
The way I see it, business is what ties our world together. From the advertisement of the products on the shelves of supermarkets to the management of the employees who sell them, business is ingrained in every interaction we have. Without business, the world as we know it simply would not exist. I aspire to be an eloquent, well-rounded individual who effectively contributes to society and makes the world a better place, and I believe that pursuing a degree in business is the best way for me to go about achieving that goal. As I look back upon my time in high school, working part-time as a cashier at Scheels All Sports and being the president of my high school’s National Honor Society prepared me to be a dedicated, tenacious, well-spoken student in the Wisconsin BBA Program and future business professional.
Throughout my life, I have always known that helping others would be an integral part of my career. In college, I searched for my identity and looked at a variety of career paths. However, I always came back to public service. It is the only profession that perfectly matches my personality and goals. In the public sector my job is more than a paycheck because I know the work I perform makes a difference. While there is certainly more fortune, free time, and privacy to be found in other careers, especially in the private sector, I cannot think of a more rewarding occupation.
The personal statement is very important to applicants who intend to be admitted to an undergraduate or graduate school. The role of a personal statement is to make applicants be different from other applicants. It mainly serves the purposes of persuading the admission committee of applicants’ great passion for the study field, explaining their experience that shaped their personality, demonstrating their longtime desire and commitment for the degree, and showing their life goals. What the admission committee is looking for in a personal statement varies from school to school, major to major. Art and Design is a unique program requiring its prospective students to be different in every aspect. The Art and Design Admission Committee is looking for a student who has creative potential in all respects. Hence, for those who want to apply to the School of Art and Design, they should understand how to present their stories, experiences, practice, goals, philosophy, inspirations, and aspirations in a creative way.
I grew up alongside the wild Rocky Mountain Columbines, where the air is crisp and the winters are long. I spent my time engaging in the arts such as acting, writing, and creating. From a young age I was drawn to the world of imagination and found happiness through producing art. We all face and over come challenges within our lives and whenever I am faced with hardship I find comfort in visually expressing myself.
I felt my heart racing, heard my name being called, and suddenly, anxiety turned into elation. Within moments, I was walking across the international stage in Orlando in front of 16,000 people. I had won 5th at DECA Internationals!
I became a tutor at the primary school, with the ESL students. I would help out with the first graders, and do some one-on-one with each of them to work on more specific things. I also became a translator again, but this time with more of an impact. I was a translator for parents, during parent teacher conferences whenever needed. When I was given this opportunity to help the parents, I was thrilled. I remembered when my mother had suffered through having to talk to another adult with difficulty, and to understand what they were telling her. I couldn't be of use to help my mother then, but with this opportunity I could do a service for
Prior to high school, my uncle was my chemistry teacher. As a food scientist, he was to me a great inventor who knew everything about the magic of taste, texture, and aroma; I still remember his lecture on “good” chocolate and how cocoa butter—solid at room temperature—melts readily in our mouths. Raised on an early appreciation for the power of applied science, I am now driven toward chemical science by a desire to uncover solutions to challenges in the modern world.
The choices one makes on the way to reach a goal can be bittersweet, as one abstains from many indulgences that bring joy, but can deviate one from the goal, set upon to accomplish. Fortunately, I find myself in such a situation, where I hope to enjoy the result, and know choices were worth the agony.
If I am accepted to the Illinois Math and Science Academy, I would be so honored and grateful. I look forward to the hands-on curricular offered at IMSA. I wish to be well prepared for my future. I plan on using the opportunities given to take initiative, explore my curiosities, step outside my comfort zone, take charge of what I’m doing with confidence, think for myself, work on different challenges, and build my independence.

I am writing this statement to apply for admission to the Ph.D. program in English at Kent State University. After earning my Master’s Degree in English and Comparative Literature from Tours University in France, I worked for nine years as an English and English as a second language instructor in higher and secondary education institutions in France, the Middle East and in the state of Ohio. Now I have decided to take my professional career to another level by undertaking a doctoral program that will prepare and capacitate me to teach English language and literature in higher education institutions.
I am writing to apply for the position of Continuing Education Instructor, English as a Second Language, in the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD).

I am applying for a masters degree in Tesol in the department of Education for fall of 2016. I obtained a bachelor’s degree in English Language and Translation from the University of Al Qassim in Saudi Arabia. The notion of completing my study in the United State is an objective of mine since I was in middle school. It is not my first time leaving home to study abroad. In the summer of 2007 before I started college I studied English in Great Britain for 6 months; combined I have studied in ESL schools for the past two and a half years. During that time, learning the language was not my only objective but also learning how teachers teach and what are the methods that work best for students, which I believe gives me advantage over other applicants. In addition I had a great deal of responsibility to my family whom decided to moved to the United State in order to find a better life for my mentally psychotic brother. It is these obligations that help shape me to be the person I am today.
