A Glimpse Of Myself Essay

723 words - 3 pages

I always used to ask myself: who am I? My brain would give me dozens and dozens of answers but never a definite one, until I figured out that I am a little bit of everything. I am the the typical girl who pays attention to the latest fashion trends and likes to try out the newest baking ideas. But I am also that girl who is more likely to cry over a character in a novel dying than when put in hard situations. I believe that books give me the strength needed to deal with difficult situations in life. They open worlds within worlds through their small windows and nourish me with unlimited knowledge about miscellaneous cultures, traditions and different life scenarios. I also find writing a way to express myself; therefore I have been writing short stories for as long as I can remember.
I am the girl always providing a helping hand and getting involved in activities. Despite moving to the suburbs of Abu Dhabi three years ago, which strictly limited my outdoor ...view middle of the document...


When I was seven, I was fascinated by the “Magic School Bus” a scientific cartoon for children; and although I didn’t understand half of the terms used or process explained in each episode, It was my favourite show and it kindled my passion to sciences that by age of 12, I had my own microscope, human torso, and a “Deluxe Scientific Kit for Kids” with a manual book to note observations for the experiments I used to carry out.
However it was not until my 10th grade that I discovered where my interests truly lie. I owe it to my chemistry teacher who made me realise that chemistry is not just a chemical formula where A gives B or a bunch of colours to remember. As he used to go deeper into the topics, and give us extra information not required in the syllabus, he opened my eyes to the worlds hidden within the word “react” or the chemistry in the presence of this particular coloured precipitate. Fired by my inquisitive nature, I used to search and spend most of my break time discussing what I found online with him. He never hesitated to explain things to me no matter how advanced the subject was but he would tell me, “You have a mind of a chemist, and one day I believe you would achieve something big”. Thus he was my true inspiration and by believing in me, he made it so simple to discover my potential.
By the end of this year I made my own search and I had decided on the career I want to pursue in my life. Reading articles like “What if you can implant a micro pharmacy inside a body?” or “How can a tube the size of human hair generate electricity?” Chemical Engineering became the field that held my attention captive. Not only does it use the knowledge of Chemistry, but it also uses Maths and Physics alongside to find the most optimum solution. Through the field’s diversity and wide range, it offers more than one opportunity to excel and do many great things. I intend to join my knowledge of chemical engineering to help make new developments in other fields such as medicine, biotechnology and renewable energy and hence be able to help people have a better, more environmentally friendly and efficient living.
I apply to the American University of Sharjah with the firm belief that it will fuel me with the needed knowledge and experience to embark on my dream.
