I am interested to apply for the bachelor’s degree program in natural science in university of Roskilde starting in 2014.
I did my secondary education in Gateway College Kandy, Sri Lanka and graduated on 2013. I have completed my secondary education in EDXCEL O/L (ordinary Level) majoring in Biology, Human biology, Chemistry, Physics, Business and Communication, Information and Technology, Geography and Mathematics. For my EDEXCEL A/L (Advanced Level) I majored in Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry and Psychology.
Throughout my Secondary education I always had deep interest in science and technology. Since my childhood I was fascinated in progression of Science and how it affected civilizations. Without science and technology the world would not have evolved. My deep interest in science has led me to read articles, journals, and attend exhibitions. In A levels, I studied biology which gave me an academic foundation that is necessary for a career ...view middle of the document...
Other than my high school academic, I have volunteered at Red Cross hospital, Japan. It helped me boost my social and communication skills. Volunteering helped me gain valuable experience and knowledge in health care field that I want to pursue in the future. I have participated in many extracurricular activities such as basketball, athletics, swimming, and as a member of interact club. I have contributed in many tournaments in school and national league representing my region. I have won many gold medals for sports and have become the champion athlete in my school, in 2011. Playing sports have given me self-confidence and helped me learn the values of being a good team player, working as a team, and commitment. Furthermore, it aided me in gaining a better understanding of my strengths and weaknesses and helped me grow personally and mentally. I was also a member of the interact club in my school and have participated in events such as Aids walk and blood donations. Participating in these events encouraged me to help others and create awareness for diseases in the community. As a interact member I developed the aspect of helping others, showing respect and personal integrity.
Furthermore, I am interested in Denmark and the Danish way of life, I learned many facts about Danish culture which I found intriguing. I have traveled to Denmark and found what a beautiful country it is, with amazing historical background. Since then I wanted to live in Denmark. As personality I would like to learn and perfect Danish. Therefore, I would love to get to know more about Denmark. Throughout my childhood I was raised in Japan and moved back to Sri Lanka to complete my secondary education. Therefore, I have been exposed to different cultures, beliefs and stereotypes. I was able to adapt to different environment and communicate well among diverse groups. I believe I will fit in well with the other students in Roskilde University in the future.
Studying in Denmark would be a great opportunity because the educational system is at high standards. I choose to apply to Roskilde with great confidence knowing that the exposure in the international bachelor in natural science with its facilities and intellectually stimulating atmosphere will help me in realizing my ideals.
