In order to be a highly effective man, I believe that talent and working hard are not enough, one should also go for his own dreams. It takes me some time to find out how to pursue my dream which is serving people in the real world. My father is from Abadan, a coastal city in southern Iran. In my childhood, he always talked to me about the poor people in the coastal cities of Iran. The main job of those people is fishing. However, lack of properly designed fishing ships and corrosion of existing ships have caused some fishermen to lose their lives due to ship sinking and fishing became a low-profit business every year. For this reason, I was very excited to have any contribution to improving the life quality of these people by appropriate designing of the ships. So I found myself greatly interested in optimal designing of the various ships mainly fishing ships. This encouraged me to select to be a Marine Engineer. However, the most of my friends looked down on me because Marine Engineering was not a popular course in my country and they told me you will regret in the future. However, despite all the contempt, the strong educational background and great enthusiasm led to I believed that I would be successful in this course. Therefore, I finally decided to be a Marine Engineer. In BSc, during the seven …show more content…

I’ve always had a keen interest in science. When I was younger, I viewed a dolphin show online. I was instantly fanisnated and later I was informed that the trainers were special marine biologists. The idea of becoming a marine biologist is still a dominate career choice for me. Last year, I was incredibly curious with the aspects that a marine biologist has to undertake that I researched the career path as part of my PLP. This only ignited my interest even further and when I was invited to attend the Flinders University I particularly focused on the marine biology and biology lectures.
My goal is to become an engineer, therefore, take my scholarship very seriously. I have always been on the honor roll in elementary and I have straight A’s for both quarter one and two. I never procrastinate and I complete most of my assignments on the same day they were given to me. I always participate in the activities in class and I never take extra credit for granted.
My Mother and Father relocated from Costa Rica to New York City where they met got married and where I was born. When I was just two years old, always wanting the best for us, my father moved our family from New York City to Jacksonville, FL in search of a better paying job and the American dream so he could provide us with a better quality of life. To ensure we were always clothed and feed, my father sacrificed everything for us and worked long hours to do so. Though I did have a pronounced, safe and active upbringing the North Florida school system didn’t expect much from the Hispanics that were starting to move to the then small town; unfortunately since my parents worked so much they expected the school system
My scholarship can be seen through my grades at Wahconah. My grade point average has not dropped below a ninety-six in my freshman nor my sophomore year. I plan to keep this up heading into my junior year. With having these grades, I know that in the winter of my sophomore year, I was eleventh in my class. I know this because I had to send my transcript to a private school who was interested in me for lacrosse, and gained very much interest seeing my grades. I have kept my grades up while also maintaining a job at Kelly’s Package Store and playing lacrosse all year round. Therefore, my I excel academically at Wahconah and plan to do no different in the future.
I have known since eighth grade that I aim to serve my country as a Naval Officer. I grew up in military and patriotic surroundings, listening to my Grandfather, a World War II PT boat veteran, tell stories of his Navy days. What inspired me most about him was that he never stopped giving back to our country. He remained a significant part of the Disabled American Veterans fighting for rights of veterans until the day he died. My Grandfather was the one that introduced me to the Naval Academy.
Thirdly, I definitely have outstanding scholarship. I am a very punctual person and in my entire high school career so far I have managed to keep a 4.0 grade point average whilst being involved in out of school activities such as swimming, church related events, and other activities. I am a very hard worker when it comes to school. I usually spend my limited free time doing homework and focusing on what I need to do the next day. I am also very aware of my grades and work hard to keep them at A’s
Scholarship and learning are things I strongly value in my day-to-day life. I have completed my freshman and sophomore years so far with an unweighted GPA of 3.94 and a weighted GPA of 5.57. I’ve challenged myself in various Honors and
My family background is Latino and I come from a family that struggles at times, but is always willing to work their butts off just to provide things for myself and also for my siblings . My uncles who I consider my parents have always been there for me and my two older sisters, he took us in when my mother passed away giving birth to my little sister, after she gave birth to my little sister, she disappeared from our lives since her dad took her, but that’s life and i’m sure one day we will meet. My life is kinda depressing, but really I don’t take it like that, as of right now I’m happy and my life’s pretty much amazing, I’m getting good grades and I’m really focused on my school and nothing is distracting me and I’m set on the right way of life and nothing will stop me from
I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to write my desired future based Master Program in Software Engineering. I feel that a higher education for Masters enable me to approach to the most recent technologies and to practice myself in a competitive environment and learn more skills in the field of Software Engineering.
I would bring previous experience and knowledge about marine life and the environment to the community. I also have years of experience and a passion for working with children. I have worked as a camp counselor for two years, volunteered for two years at children's art camps at my local museum, I also worked with elementary students and helped them through my school's reading mentor program. I aspire to combine my love for aquatic life and working with children to help raise awareness in the community. I would also like to give children the hands on opportunity to go out into the field and learn.
Personal Statement: Twenty years of education have brought me a deep appreciation for the study of the Power systems, Controls systems and Telecommunication. When the time came to specialize, my decision to major in Electrical Power Engineering was motivated by the hope of achieving a strong opportunity of creativity, research, and development. Electrical Engineering, with its myriad sub-domains and multi-faceted nature is a natural amalgamation that allows me to express my creativity and innovative power to bring about works that offer benefits to society. The tools and aims may be different, but designing and developing software/hardware or devising a novel mathematical proof is relatable to the work of artists in their shared spirit of creating. I view my decision to study Electrical Engineering as a natural means of fulfilling my need to create since it equips me with tools for the job: the ability to devise, test and evaluate Power systems and the programming knowledge required to implement them.
The development of every nation hinges on the effectiveness of their transportation systems. Movement of goods, services and people to and from work is made possible by transportation systems. The importance of effective transportation systems cannot be over-emphasized. A lot of countries are facing Transportation problems and my country Ghana is no exception. A trip of about 30 minutes can take about an hour or more due to traffic jams. This is seriously impacting productivity and has been a topical issue in the country. The situation is the same in Uganda where I currently work. To this end, Transportation Engineers are needed to design roads/ highways that will stand the test of time, plan effective traffic management systems to reduce travel
This quote from Carol Dweck (Professor of Psychology at Stanford University) has inspired me the way I go about in my life. The belief in continuous learning with the optimistic approach towards hard work, learning and doggedness has always been my motivation. My plans for a master’s degree are centered on the motive of productive research contribution in transportation engineering.
A five-foot five-inch replica of the Empire State Building that I stacked entirely with playing cards back in high school was the first time I appreciated the subtleties involved in creating complex card structures. I gradually progressed to stacking domes and a full-sized stadium, but the way this tower held together fascinated me, and I realized that there was much more going on in addition to the seemingly obvious concept of maintaining the right balance. After all, nothing could be that simple. Likewise, after four years of undergraduate studies in civil engineering, it seems to me I have barely scratched its surface. A graduate school will allow me to delve deep and let me explore the finer aspects of the field. Furthermore, this is crucial in terms of achieving my long-term goal of pursuing a PhD to carve out a career in industrial research.
I have literally known what I want to be since I was a toddler. Of course, as a three-year old putting together Legos, I could not have verbalized that I want to be a mechanical engineer. However, it was at that time that I began to develop and use the skills that I will need for my desired career. I began to consider how parts went together and the different components necessary to build and sustain various systems. Part of the inspiration was the simple fun that I had while putting together these small toys, but part of my inspiration was my father. He was a maintenance turn-around coordinator at an oil refinery, which led to my own desire to work as a mechanical engineer in a refinery one day. As I grew older, my interest in mechanical engineering remained constant, though I expanded my interest beyond the oil refineries. In fact, after attending a pre-college program, Jackling Introduction to Engineering, offered by Missouri Science and Technology in Rolla, Missouri in the summer of 2011, I realized that engineering was the perfect way to exercise my curiosity and inventiveness in a constructive and productive manner.
